Situation--We are moving in July. It is new construction but we are just leasing it. The house has medium-dark wood floors in the living room and sort of an odd color of taupe on the walls with white trim. The carpet in the bedrooms is that burber shag stuff (which I am not nuts about) and it has ceramic tile in wet areas.
I am getting new living room furniture and am not going to spend loads (i.e. No Ethan Allen). I have been looking at Ashley Furniture. I am thinking about keeping the colors cool- beige, off-white, sage green. I found this sofa and this chair and ottoman. They are not part of the same set but I like the idea of them together. What do you think? Do you think this color combo would work or should I keep it all the same color? This particular sofa doesn't have a coordinating chair in the same fabric. The chair is covered in the fabric of the pillows, which I don't care for.
Also, there are no small children in my life. My niece is 15. I think the light sofa would survive.
and this rug if it is still available at another store:
I am trying to appease a fiance who has very modern or contemporary tastes and make myself happy. I tend to really like the cottage style which he abhors. We were also considering a red sofa (not with this chair of course) but my cats have light colored hair and I can see that being a nightmare to keep clean.
