Question by lindsay615: How do I find the right tone gold to go with my plum pillows and my red&rust rug?
I have a plum stripe pillow and a rug that is red, rust and plum. I want to paint the walls a goldish color that coordinates with my existing decor. How do I find what tones of gold go with my existing colors? Please don’t direct me to paint web sites. I have tried that.

Just an idea.. try using a newer technique of faukx finishing.. I went to two classes at the Home Depot(free of course) on this and I am going to try it first in my bathroom… IF you wanted to keep the room(and colors) sort of light(not too dark), then you could paint the walls Swiss Coffee and then using glazes of two colors on that.. one of gold metallic and another of rust. That faux finishing gives a person many choices of color combinations..

    I don’t exactly know the name of the color but how you’re describing your decor try a mustard gold.
