color suggestions?

The furniture in our living room/family room consists of a sectional (Ikea Ektorp – love it!) and a tan microfiber chair and ottoman.  I love the chair and ottoman, but was feeling like the room was a little too much tan – tan walls, tan furniture.   Luckily I have a wonderful husband who doesn’t think I’m crazy when I say “Let’s sell the chair/ottoman and the couch in the playroom!”  Now it’s sold and I’m bringing in a wonderful old rocking chair to take the chair’s place.  The rocker belonged to my husband’s grandmother and has beautiful lines and carvings…but the stain on it is a little worse for the wear.

Here’s where you come in.  I’m going to paint the chair and would love some suggestions!  This “mood board” illustrates our wall color, our sectional, and the rug in the room.  The chair is also going to sit in front of our beautifully-painted white built-ins. 

I’ve found these chairs as inspiration on Pinterest…

After browsing through Rustoleum’s spray paint color charts, here are a few that I liked…

Any suggestions?  Do you like any of these 3 colors?  Hate them?  Couldn’t care less?


  1. My first thought was go for green. I like the oregano and slate blue. I think the green would work nicely with the rug. Can't wait to see what you decide!

  2. I knew you were up to something with rocking chairs b/c of your Pinterest pins! Just looking at your mood board before I scrolled down, I was thinking a soft blue color would look great against all the neutral. So my choice would be the slate blue.

  3. I like the stand-out-ness of the slate blue against the rest of the neutral colors.

    Just started following your blog- it's great! :)

  4. I like the oregano best, but I am a green girl.
