Embrace warm wood tones. The warmth of wood helps to balance out the cool tones often found in gray, so embrace wood where you have it. If you have wood paneling or wood beams overhead, install an eye-catching light fixture to draw the eye upward. If you have wood built-ins, style them with colorful, curated accessories to ensure they’re a focal point.
A couple of years ago, I chose a couch from Article for a client (aka my little brother 😉 ), and I was so very impressed. I was a little hesitant about ordering furniture that I couldn’t touch beforehand (they sell exclusively online), but their low delivery price and easy return policy made it a no brainer… and the couch ended up being perfect: the quality, the style, and the price were incredible. So I began looking at Article when I was thinking about a new couch for my living room, and was so pleased to find this sectional and to partner with them on this project. The Cube is a very generous (both deep and wide) modular sofa, sold either as a three-piece set or piece by piece (ours is two ends, two middles, and one corner to make the giant L… and I do mean giant).
Since I’ve had at least one little one in the house learning to walk for the past six years, I’ve been a big fan of tufted ottomans used as “coffee tables.” But I’ve never loved one as much as I love this. The Timpani in Charme Tan is incredibly gorgeous. The modular sofa is the piece that makes the room work, but the ottoman is the piece I am smitten by: the beautiful light brown real leather, the stitching in such a pretty pattern, the slight tufting… it’s all perfect. And totally baby friendly.
