Thanks for all the input guys- you've given me lots to think about!

I love red too!  My living room colours are red, sage green, and chocolate brown.  This may sound weird and slightly Christmasy, but it works!

Oooh, you do have an awesome living room! I like the armchair artwork!

Wow, I love all this feedback! Thanks guys, keep it coming! And please feel free to make other color suggestions! Now that I've made the template it's pretty easy to play with colors.

How about a brown paper treatment? Then you get texture and color. I think another shade of brown would compliment very well.

The only problem with this is, like I mentioned before, I'm not actually painting the walls. This is just a way to see the two colors together so I can pull in other artwork/accessories for the room!

Okay guys, after your suggestions I fiddled around in Photoshop. I can't paint my walls like the pictures but this seemed like a quick & easy way to see how the colors would work in the room. Any opinions?

Yellow

Light Green

Dark Green

Gold

Purple

Dark Blue (Might look too much like primary colors)

(This is the blue I originally wanted to use)

Thanks for all of the responses, guys!

As some of you have noticed, I DO already have a bit of gold in my living room, and I've toyed with the idea of using gold/dark yellow, but I'm just not sure that combination really pops quite the way the teal/red did. I may think more on that suggestion though.

Oh, and I did really like the Celadon suggestion! Interestingly enough, that was the color of our bridesmaids' dresses in my brother's wedding. That's a nice green, and pale enough that people might not instantly think of Christmas, which I had been concerned about...

THANKS! You guys have given me some fun things to consider!

Hey guys! I'm looking for some help with the colors of my apartment. I LOVE bright, vibrant colors, but I live in an apartment so I can't really paint the walls here. I feel like I've done an okay job incorporating color so far, but it's a little monochromatic for me. So I recently decided that in addition to all of the red in my living room I'd start introducing some teal artwork. I started painting some foam panels to get up on my walls when suddenly my mother went and repainted her whole living room red and teal. Weird, right? So now I feel like the fun of my red/teal room is sort of spoiled and I'm looking for a fun alternative to accent all of my red.

Here's my living room as it is right now (Sorry, I was lazy with the blinds this morning- only two are open):




And when I decide on a new color I have this cool vaulted ceiling at the other end of the living room for some nice big artwork (Please ignore the clutter):


SO- who has some fun color suggestions for me?! Smiley

Oh, thanks guys! I used the cheese fondue idea Ms Jameson! I ended up finding this unusual chocolate candy that he and my mom really love so I got that for him instead of doing the chocolate fondue mix. Maybe if the cheese fondue is a big hit then I can do a chocolate one for him for Christmas.

Thanks for all your help! He's getting his gifts tonight- hope he likes 'em! Smiley

He does eat dairy, you are correct. And this is a great link! Unfortunately I'm not sure I have enough time for the package to be shipped here. I had hoped to make something myself. But thank you so much for your suggestion!

Hi guys!

So my step-dad's birthday is this week and I haven't had any idea what to get him. Then today I realized that he would LOVE a home-made fondue mix. They already have the fondue pot and everything, but they're both kind of lazy about cooking so it would be great if I could give them a SUPER easy Cheese Fondue mix and an easy Chocolate fondue mix. Unfortunately everything seems sort of overly-complex when it comes to actually being cooked. Anybody have any good recipes for a mix that will store well until they're ready to use it and which they can just sort of heat up and eat one night?

Oh, and not that it's a big deal with fondue, but my step-dad is a vegetarian.

THANKS!!
