The colors you choose to decorate a room reflect your style and personality. Cool tones suggest a calm personality, while deep hues call to a more outgoing soul. When you consider what colors to use with a celery green couch, note that the color is light enough to complement the same tones and trendy enough to handle dark woods and accent pillows.
Use different colors that complement each other when you choose a color palette for your room design. A visit to any paint store will provide you with many choices of color palettes. While you can use the same color throughout the room, highlight the unusual celery green color with similar tones in blue, rose and beige. Conversely, add rich, dark colors to balance the light green hue.
Maximize the chic green color by using it on the walls. Paint one wall the same celery green color to make it the accent wall and the other walls a neutral off-white. Place the sofa across from the accent wall to highlight the matching tones.
Place blue patterned accent chairs in the room. Choose a navy or denim blue fabric to complement the celery green couch. Flower patterns, plaids or stripes work well along with dark brown wood accents on the chairs. Add a cream and rose colored love seat or settee to the room decor to match the soft green color.
Curtains and Pillows
Adorn the windows with curtains to match the accent chairs. The wall color will dominate the room along with the celery green sofa, whereas matching the curtains to the accent chairs pulls the room decor together. Use throw pillows in the same accent on the love seat or settee and on the green sofa.
