What colors match an olive green couch?

We're moving in about 3 weeks and we just got a whole bunch of paint samples. Do any of you have pics to share of olive green couches up against your painted walls? We'd probably use the same color into our tiny kitchen, because they kind of flow into each other. TIAChat Icon

Re: What colors match an olive green couch?

I have green couches - they call the color Moss but its pretty close to olive I'd say. I used a color from Sherwin Williams called "Blonde" and it looks gorgeous. Actually my painter prefers Benjamin Moore (dont they all?) but they were able to create the same "recipe" for the SW color but using BM paint. My kitchen is cherry wood and it looks equally nice with that color. It's a goldish beige - not too gold though but definitely not beige. LOL thats a terrible explanation but its a great color.

Re: What colors match an olive green couch?

i know it doesn't look olive from the pic but i think it is greenish/brownish.

how about yellow? we have yellow and a creamish color on the opposite walls (i think it's benj moore ancient oak) and the yellow may be jasper yellow
