We just bought new sofas for the living room and I think the room looks awful now! We moved in about 8 weeks ago and brought with us our old black leather sofa and armchairs, but after arranging the room I thought it looks too much like a bachelor pad. So we decided we should try the 'grown-up thing' and have a more formal room and buy some 'stylish' stuff.
Well, we did that and I'm nearly hysterical thinking I should send everything back! It's too prosaic! My hubby and his brother like it ('it looks grown-up'), my sweet mother-in-law thinks it looks "lovely, although you should probably think of a new wall colour!" and I hate it! And that paint is only 8 weeks old!
Ok, the room is not finished - we are waiting for plantation shutters to be installed in a couple of weeks, also we would have shelves built in the alcoves (the TV stand is a temporary thing), I still need to put paintings up. But even so, I think the room lacks warmth and I'm not sure what to do - I added that plant just to fill space up.
Could you please let me know what you think and maybe what I can do to give it a different feel. Thank you
