We would like to paint our living room red and cream: the main fireplace wall a nice warm red and the rest a nice cream colour.

We are struggling with a nice warm red colour though and would like some feedback.

We have black leather settees 3x2 and 2x2 and a wooden fireplace (we were also wondering whether to paint it white)?

We have a lot of wood in the living area, ie. big mahogany table with 6 chairs and also double door glass area into the living space.

Use of paint

Hi (great site). I would maybe steer clear of painting that focal wall red, imagine seeing it as soon as you wake up early morning (after a few beers)! Maybe try a terracotta or burnt orange instead of red. Nice warm colours but easy on the eye. Good luck! :)

Go with Color

I would personally go for color and not white.
You already have a lot of items to help create a nice "warm" atmosphere.

Best of luck!
