For this fall and winter, this will work great. The white sofa has a yellow undertone and the beige chair is sort of a putty with a tiny blue stripe, and the two really aren't that good next to each other. The dark mink throw adds just enough visual separation. Seems like you focus on the throw more than the two individual pieces. I could move the chair next to the leather one,but then I would have to sit sideways to see the tv. Not a good thing, so it actually has to stay where it is. This is a pretty good solution. I like the touch of green too.
This is what I have now, not the best. I added a camel/gold throw to the chair.
Not really very good.
Ok, I have a beige fur throw and I like it with the chair. Since it is the same color beige as the chair, it adds that color to the sofa. Not crazy about it with the gold/camel pillows though.
I put the check sample fabric on the sofa, and it's not too bad. I think if I use either of the fur throws and the chocolate pillows it will be ok. Works for me and at least the chair doesn't look like such a foreign animal.
The wicker chair currently has a small check on it in a soft camel color that coordinates with the drapes. I have a drop cloth and layed it on the chair to see if adding something else white to the room helped. I really didn't like it, but then I am not sure. What do you think?
I could move the wicker chair out and move the leather one back in. It was here before, however it just seems like a lot of big heavy chairs to me.
This is a space filler, but shows what a smaller non-descript chair would look like. Not too good.
This one looks best for right now. Just a little too warm to have out a fur throw. Maybe if I look for a green throw. That's a good idea.
I am grateful for all of my things, so this looks super to me. Maybe not the exact best color match, but it is a warm and friendly room and super comfortable.
So what do you think? Give me some input folks, chairs - throws - pillows - start over?
