|Upholstered or leather, including wall color and window treatments. I need inspiration! TIA|
|This is my sofa, on the website where I first saw it and fell in love. |
I still love it. If I were single I would marry it.
|Here is a brown sofa on CL. :)|
Here is a link that might be useful: Brown couch
|Here is my brown leather sofa....with a mix of upholstered chairs. The leather works for us with kids & 3 dogs. Coffee table out of old reclaimed wood & iron is in the works for the leather ottoman to slide under (our old sofa wasn't as dark but we love putting our feet up on the ottoman) |
|Scooby, what beautiful taste you have!|
My pics come out so dark.
|Mcclarke, do you have a pic of your sofa in your house?|
|Gracie, did you look in the living rooms threads in our Gallery? There are hundreds of inspirational pics in there for you.|
|Beautiful rooms! |
It's old, broken and needs to be replaced, LOL.
The good thing about it is that I treat the brown as a neutral and use what I want with it. Currently have a sisal rug, french vanilla walls, olive patterned drapes,
2 leather recliners and hubby's patterned recliner. Hope this helps~
|I don't have a good pic of my brownish/ moss sofa in it's current setting but here is one of our brown leather chairs: |
|Mcclarke, do you have a pic of your sofa in your house? |
Oh, but that is my house! White walls, white rug.... LOL, I will take a photo this afternoon and post it.
|Texashottie, that certainly is a compliment coming from YOU!! |
Boopadoo, I am loving those beams in your room & the painting over your FP.
Loribee - I love seeing pics of your home.....so peaceful & relaxing. Those leather chairs are awesome.
Ttodd - I love seeing your house, too - you have such a way of putting items together & I love how you change things around!! (you wear me out, girl!!)

Now that's a perfect example of the pot calling the kettle black. :)
|Thanks to ALL of you for posting. That's just what I wanted to see -- each of you has different colored walls with brown furniture, and they all work and look wonderful. Now I need to decide on my own color. Thanks again.|
|Hey gracie -- my sofa in situ, as promised. Sorry, no way to get a good angle on it... |
My walls are Lenox tan.
|Thanks mcclarke; beautiful room.|
|Why, Parma (in a perfect drawn out Southern' drawl) just what are you trying to say, my dear??!! Little ole' me?? Obsessive? Compulsive?? |
Let's just say it's a good thing my paint is flat & spackle is my new BFF ;)
What a wonderful sofa, Mclarke!
|Mclarke - love your fireplace and bookshelves. Any chance you can post more photos of that room? I don't mean to hijack, perhaps on a new thread? Thank you!|
|Oh, thanks, Joanie! I don't want to hijack the thread... but here's a photo of the fireplace at Halloween, which shows the fireplace and the bookshelves... |
