But this post has gotten really long! So I’m going to save all the other decorating details for part 2. In the meantime, what do you think? Do you struggle to get enough seating in your living space? Do you have a small living room? Do you think (counterintuitive though it may seem) that a large sectional might be your answer? I’d love to know!
Choose a cozy area rug. Don’t underestimate the power of a comfy area rug. Sometimes a little fluff underfoot is the difference between a brilliant design that’s welcoming and lived-in and an almost-brilliant design that’s cold and lifeless. Rugs in soft, neutral tones, like cream and white, work well with gray sectionals.
Probably the only thing I might change if I had total control is I tend more towards warm grays than cool. Our walls, which are Sherwin Williams Agreeable Gray, are my favorite – light gray with some warm tones – and our kitchen cabinets are a darker warm gray. The gray blue of the sectional really is beautiful (and actually complements our marble in the kitchen really well). I think it will be a very forgiving color: light enough to help the room feel bright (remember one of my goals?), but dark enough to hide the inevitable grime of young kids.
Daybeds: A daybed is a single twin mattress that sits in a frame to give it the look of a sofa. Since the frame lacks the cushioning of a standard sofa and this style is best for a room that‘s not going to be used regularly for pleasurable.
Futons: The most basic of sleeper sofas also a futon has a metal or wood frame with a single mattress on top. When it´s folded up the mattress "produces" both the back as well as seat of the sofa. While pretty comfortable as a bed: a futon could leave something to be wanted as a sofa since it has a firm together with somewhat unforgiving seat.
