Q: I own a dark brown sofa. How can I keep the piece from dominating the look of the room? A: I love brown sofas. You can put any color of pillow on it. Keep the walls lighter, anchor the space with a light-color textural rug, and limit other dark browns to an accent chair or a picture frame. Bring in midtones such as hot pink, red, and teal.
