First order of business: find one of these!
Here is my first furniture purchase - seating for the family room:
Pillow colors (to be supplemented with others I find and rotated once in awhile) The two patterns will not be used at the same time:
|the dark color is charcoal, not black as shown|
The fabric is a very pretty subtle woven texture and is a nice neutral (no yellow/cream) - very updated and super comfortable. I configured the pieces a little differently so it would be two separate pieces (more flexibility in furniture placement)...
Yes, with two kids I'm pretty brave (silly) for going with the light color - but I didn't like any of the other options (a honey color, lime green and very dark charcoal). I'm getting slipcovers made for the seats and purchased the protection plan :)
