Looking for advice on furniture arrangement before purchasing new furniture - last time we bought one piece at a time and tried (as you can see below) to make it all fit.
This is a 3 level townhouse done in Elmira White with a green/beige trim that we are redoing. The main floor color change is in BM - Sea Haze with a feature wall in Iron Mountain. The dining wall is being updated to Whittal Brown. With the open concept, the kitchen is in Sea Haze and Whittal Brown as well. Baseboards will be in Grey Owl and I am doing the trim around doors in the same color as the walls as the way the original colors were drove me nuts. As a result in the bottom and top floors I am redoing all the baseboard and trim in the Elmira White (bathrooms are in Monroe Bisque so changed the baseboard and trim to match).
Anyway, the living furniture won't go with the new colors so we will start over. The room is 13 feet wide - the doorway is near the window in the picture and the fireplace is opposite the chaise. Most 'idea' pictures I see have a fireplace on the back wall and the walkway opposite so I can't find a picture that is similar to our layout . The use of this room is for reading papers and drinking coffee on weekend mornings and having friends over to drink wine in the evenings.
I am thinking all light colored furniture to be able to have fun with accent pillows etc. Will keep the coffee and end tables and the mirror but everything else can go if I can figure out what to replace with - mind you I may simply recover the cubes as we just pull them out if we are having more people than seats. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
