Spray painted letters using 3 coats of Krylon Stainless Steel + Valspar "Brown Velvet" in Satin (lightly spray from a distance to get a splotchy effect) + Black Acrylic Paint (use a makeup sponge to dab this on the edges and corners)
With beige walls, white windows and baseboards, I like the idea of a deep teal accent wall in the living room with yellow and orange accents. Couch either tan or dark brown. Accent wall in kitchen a lighter teal. Use red and coral accents in the kitchen.
