  2. Dear Susan and Lyn…

    I have a decorating condundrum that I was wondering if you could weigh in on. I am looking for a new couch. I would like to buy a leather couch because I have two messy 5 year olds and a messy husband and a messy self. Leather works well for my family. I have a distressed black entertainment center and black end tables. I have a dining room table that is sort of a honey color on top, black on the bottom with a black and honey small check patterned on the seats. I don’t really have any art that I am in love with. I have recently realized the colors that inspire me are that silvery blue, glass, silver, light celery green and that rose color that is somewhere between a pink and red but muted. My question is what color should my couch be? What about accent chairs? My instinct tells me to go light on the couch but light leather looks cheap. I need a distressed, lived in look that can take the wear and tear of my family but I am so sick of neutral, boring colors that I would like accent with colors that inspire me. Please help me bring it together. The couch is such an anchor piece to a room. The couch I am getting rid of is one that I have serious buyers remorse about and have had to live with it for 6 years. I don’t want to make the same mistake. Thanks girls!

      Hi Amy! I totally hear you on the couch situation! It’s such a big purchase that is central to any room. Take a look at our post about my new leather couch called “Pouring on out for our homie.. and other news”. We don’t have kids, but we do have a dog and our cloth couch was just not working with his hair! I’d highly recommend Sellwood Furniture who we bought our leather couch from. Both Sus and I have purchased furniture through them and have loved it. They have a lot of choices of leather and you can customize what you pick. The line we bought from was Maroni. I’ll let Sus reply with any other tips she has too! Good luck!

        I am thinking that Sellwood wouldn’t work for Amy, she lives in Cali. Aim, I’ll have to put together a visual suggestion for you. Hold please.

    Kyle connected the dots for me and I can’t believe what a small world Portland is! Hello! Hi! Nice to meet you via the internet:). We must meet and chat in person! Hopefully our paths will cross in the gym soon. I love reading your blog and I’m fairly convinced we have a lot in common…

    Hope to see you soon!
