Like I mentioned in my last post, our living room has been a bit of a debating ground. First we couldn’t decide on keeping or removing the paneling, then we couldn’t decide on keeping or leaving the trim, and most recently there was the Great Couch Debate of 2015.
We had given our last couch away and with not one but two living room spaces, we desperately needed a couch or two or three. I had visions of a white, clean couch that would allow me to rotate through different pillows and throws with ease. Scott was hoping for a leather couch that was worn and distressed that he could sit on without worries of staining it. We both thought the other would back down.
We went to Wier’s Clearance Showroom to check out the merchandise after hearing good things. Almost immediately after coming in, I gravitated towards this gorgeous creamy white sleeper sofa that was so fluffy and comfy that it felt like sitting on a cloud.
Scott, however, found a dark brown, distressed finished sofa that he kept pulling us back to and mentioning. We both listened politely to the concerns and praises of the other, but in the end were both pretty stuck on our respective couch.
So what’d we do?
We bought both. :O
Our logic was we could always put one upstairs in the (still empty) bonus room. Once we got them in the living room and started playing with the layout though, we actually liked them both in there. And it’s fun to each have our own style represented. It goes with the living room—I guess white and brown is our color scheme in there. 😛
To brighten up the brown couch I’ll add fun throw pillows. And to keep the white couch clean, we just won’t eat there. 🙂 So far so good. Luckily it’s a slipcover so we can always get it dry cleaned if necessary.
What do you guys think? Are we the master compromisers or what? 🙂 Next up is the fun part…accessorizing! Here’s a sneak peek…!
