This weekend we’re tackling our living room design. We have both come to the conclusion that it’s just not working out, mainly because we have no plan for it. No overarching design idea, no color scheme, no nothing. So, we need your help.

There are a few constants that we want to work around. Here they are :

The background color reflects our recent paint job in the room (Behr’s Gallery White). The couch and chair are both recent purchases.  The couch has to stay in here, the chair could fit somewhere else in the house but we want to try our best to incorporate into the living room.  The floor is Ridge Hickory from Kahrs.  To make matters difficult we don’t have this flooring in yet (we are still rocking the beige carpet), but it will go in this spring. We want to design for the new floor, not for the carpet.

Ah, and let’s not forget the unmovable fireplace.

This room is part of the house’s great room, with the other part being the dining room. The dining room right now is a pretty basic dark brown woods with green accent. So it shouldn’t be too hard to make them all connect.

Given these parameters, what would you do? Color scheme (while keeping the walls white)? Furniture? Accessories? We are dying to know your thoughts, please help!
