Since the Piano has now found a new home, I've moved on to the first step of turning our study into a cozy place for the girls to hang out. I'm searching for a sofa that is inexpensive, comfy, neutral and won't show kid damage too quickly. I was immediately drawn to the chocolate and I think it will be a nice contrast against the green (although I'm never opposed to repainting a room!) but then I think the vanilla is so neutral that it would be a good choice.
As much I would have loved a crisp white slipcovered sofa, sweet hubby (rightly) vetoed that move. As much as I love my chair, I am constantly taking the lint roller to it. Add in messy kids and I would make myself a little crazy. And possibly them too.
All I know for sure is that I don't want to spend the next 6 months making a decision and I want a place for kids to get out of my hair, umm, I mean hang out, without having to spend my life's savings to achieve it. So which are you, chocolate or vanilla?
