decorating decisions…

24 Apr

Okay, Well, we still have many steps until we officially move into our home (including the home owner inspection, so who knows if we OFFICIALLY get it or not yet and our mortgage financing).  However, my amazing husband and myself are trying to figure out our decorating schemes.

We think we have decided on our couch. We still have a few stores to check out, and it will be about a month before we order anything.  However, we found a great sectional from Haverty’s that we can build our own layout for it!  We built what we wanted, priced it out, and it was reasonable. We built a couch that would comfortable sit ten.  Yes, amazing, I know. It also has a chaise on one side and a cuddler on the other.  Here’s a link to the type of couch, but we can build our own so it’s not on there!

However, the big decision is color.  We are either thinking the blue option or the olive green one.  Our next big decision is to find an area rug.  Right now our main contender for the rug is this guy right here. However, there is also this rug option for those couch color options.

Our big issue with it though, is that we have some art work that we have to match.  This is one big purchase for our living room.

We think the blue or the green will go best with that! Also we have some wedding photos that have the same colors in it, and an original framed Disneyland map to hang with it.  (I’ve come to terms, I will have a Disney house!)

However, we also have another painting that is Walt’s apartment that would look great with a red couch.  However, I’m sure we can fit it in elsewhere if it’s not in our living room. However, one option we love for that is this rug.  With our red couch, the dark wood floors, we think it would look amazing.

I end up making most of the decisions, as my poor husband is partially color blind, so it’s kinda hard for him to give any huge input.

So, for those of you out there in blog world, what do you think? Opinions?

    I LOVE the idea of the red couch with the multi color rug. So pretty and striking! I know it’s very much for those “disney lovers” since I don’t think bright colors like that are everybody’s cup of tea. I actually like the idea of a blue couch and the first rug (the one with the rectangles on the border) to go with the print you posted. I know green would look good too, but I think the blue would fit it better. How exciting to be decorating YOUR very OWN space!!! 😀
