The Green Room aka Family Room

Head's up, this is going to be an incoherent ramble.  

So here's the deal.  

This is our Family Room.  Well, will be our family room.  When it's finished.  Which will happen, god knows when, but I digress.  The sofa is in my possession.  

Which, I think, was most of the battle to make this thing happen.  Cause finding the perfect green sofa, with aqua and gold brocade trim, that was IN my price range.  Impossible.  Or, so I thought. I came upon this beauty whilst perusing Chairish.  It was my own sofa miracle.   Especially with the crazy adventure of trying to get it up the stairs, in our 85 year old house (there are literally chunks out of the plaster walls in the stairwell, I kid you not.)  But, I digress (again.)  It's mine, and it made it into the room.  So, there you go...right?  If only.

My Platner is the only other thing in the room right now (that's staying,) besides a very large TV.  It's tricky, you see, because it's a very long narrow room, with the TV on one side and the sofa on the other.  I'm going to get 2 aqua swivel chairs (which clearly, aren't shown on the board) to go on the left there.  They will JUST fit.  But, they have to be small.  As there is limited space.  My guess is I'll have to find some, and then reupholster them.   What's new.

The walls are going green, I think.  The same color as the sofa.  It will be a very green room.  Which could be super rad...or...not.  Then the aqua toile fabric swatched above will be for the curtains/shades.  I just love these 2 colors together.    The lamps in the pic are just extra....kinda what I have in mind, but only within my budget.  God, I hate budgets.  They spoil all the fun.  

Anyway, thoughts?

I would never have thought to put aqua & green together. But if anyone can pull it off, you can.

You are obviously a couch whisperer. I adore green and aqua together! Can't wait to see how this develops.
