Soon to be beige

Major colour crisis. We are replacing the sofa etc. My initial plan (I can ignore BB's views on such matters - he is colour blind) was to have a monochrome décor a black/grey sofa, pale grey walls, black paint work, and then I wanted to go all out on bright loud curtains and cushions and pictures, that I could change every few months as the mood took me. Unfortunately due to compromises for comfort (that dratted leg again) we have had to settle for an aubergine set of furniture. PURPLE!!! I hear you all shout, just up FF's street, that would look fit fine in her monochrome plan. But no, it is a perfectly pleasant colour, but it is a brownish purple and it is shouting at me and demanding a beige setting.

A bit of a contrast to this current colour scheme.

Beige? Oh no...

Well, you have to do what you have to do. I just couldn't do beige, it would make me a bit mental.

Lady P - the is no room for a feature wall! The alcoves are ful of book shelves, one wall is all window (and therefore curtain which I hope to be in yer face) and the other 2 will be for pictures

That leaves the ceiling, which will have neither books nor pictures on.............sky blue pink it is then

Couldn't you cover up the new sofa with a throw or something?

Might have to Dr Crickson, or I will just have to get used to being the Queen of Beige
