Searching for Pillows

You've seen the color of my couches.
What is a good accent color for sage green? The couches came with floral accent pillows, but my dog loved them for some reason and chewed off the corners. I've been looking for replacements for two years and can never settle on anything as good as the first ones.

Thoughts?

Orange! Red! Yellow!

Oh, wait. Those are MY colours. Probably not what you're looking for.

You could go with a light lavender, off white, pale yellow...almost anything really. I think sage is almost a neutral color.

Do you have any pictures of the old pillows? Take a picture to a fabric store and try to find something that's similar. Maybe MWTG could help you make some pillows. She'd love that! That's my idea but I tend to be thrifty about such things.

Don't you have a dog? Try to match the pillows to the dogs hair color! I thought that was kinda funny!

A deep rich red hue. I think of red as a neutral it makes so many other colours pop.

We have a darker sage couch and the accent pillows that came with it have a variety of browns, but what I really love is the copper that they mixed in with it.

If you want purple/lavendar, let me know and I'll talk to MidwestBeachGirl, she left a huge stack of pillows at my house that she probably won't use again that are cream,violet, gold and many other varieties.
