Paralysis by analysis.. Living Room "style" & color suggestions needed
I am having trouble narrowing my vision for my LR (too many pretty pictures!!). We have a 1952 ranch and did lots of work before moving in. (thanks for your previous suggestions, we kept the brick and painted the paneling)
We are at the point now that I can start with the fun stuff, but we are starting with a blank slate and I am nervous to make big purchasing decisions because my eye seems to wander when I see something cool.
We are planning on purchasing a new couch with chaise or L for in front on the picture windows. The TV is in the recessed section in the second picture across from the Fireplace. We plan on doing *something* with the fireplace relatively soon, but don't need suggestions yet. Other than that, I have a round 1950's mahogany? coffee table on casters, a wing back chair and a small club chair in need of reupholstering. The chairs sit opposite the couch and back to our DR. We also have a 10 month old Lab and plan on having kids.
So, what I am asking? I think the colors in the attached pictures would work, but where do I begin? Color of the Couch, Rug? New Upholstery?
I like contemporary but not stark, industrial without being shabby chic and casual but keeping in mind this is our only living room... all hopefully tying in some MCM appeal. Is it possible?
