It DOES look comfy. Good job, Hubby!
We compromised.. he picked the sofa and I talked him into re-painting the bookshelves as the black may make the room too dark with the new dark gray sofa.
But I am questioning my choice of re-painting the bookshelves Mulberry by BM.
Do you think it would still look good? Fuschia shelving with a patterned back? I don't want the room to be too feminine.. even though Hubby says he would love a pop of color in our otherwise, black, white and gold/brass color palette of a house.
Here's how it looks now..

Anywhoo.. on to the dining room. I have been searching high and low for a rustic, reclaimed wood, Asian inspired dining room table. I haven't found anything that I liked. NOTHING!!
So I decided to instead look for another equally nice dining table and maybe find a rustic accent piece for the dining room.. like a sideboard or something..
Here's the table:
It's not the rustic, reclaimed, Asian-y table I wanted but if I squint hard, it gives me an Asian, Hollywood Regency vibe. I think it will be fabulous even though it will take my decor inspiration in another direction.
Now, if only I could get started with that reupholstery and painting and adding molding and.. and.. and...
Sometimes I feel I will never be done with the first floor. But I must admit, I am enjoying the journey.
