This or That???

Soooooo, I have a dilemma on my hands.  

Since I have my new oxblood sofa (see here,) I'm feeling like the modern abstract above it just isn't working for me anymore.  I still love the piece.  Just not there.  Just like the white walls aren't working for me either.  I swear...get a new sofa and everything is thrown out of wack.  But, these are good problems to have.  The sofa IS working for me.  So, I need to go from there.  Right?

Above, you will see the two options I've narrowed it down to for the replacement of said abstract.  It will (of course) be above the sofa.  And I want it large.  Like, reallllllly large.  I want it to fill the entire space above the sofa.  The one on the left comes in a 54x68 size.  Which would be perfect.  The one on the right...I'm seeing if I can get it custom made in a large size (it only comes in a 50x40 size.)  If not, I don't know.  I'm trying to decide if I can live with it that small.  Now, I know you're like...dang...small?  I mean it...I want it large and in charge.  

As far as, which I like better?  I have to say it's the one on the right.  I love me a good, dark, moody still life.   Plus, those colors...wow, like they were made for the space.  But, the one on the left is lovely too.  And, more of the size I had in mind (ugh, back to that.)  So, I'm truly torn.

Also, the color of the walls is up for debate.  I have it narrowed down to 2 colors. 

Dove Tale (left) and Peignoir (right.)  Both by Farrow and Ball.

Now, Peignoir was one that I nearly painted the Living Room to begin with 7 months ago (instead of the white.)  I was THIS close.  But, in the end, I decided to be safe.  Wah, wah.  But, you live, you learn.  Dove tale, is a little bit darker.  But, still along the same lines.  I don't think I could go wrong with either, really.  Both are incredibly sophisticated, but still soft.  I might get some samples and throw them up on the wall for comparison.  We'll see.  

And, that's it for this fabulous Wednesday.  What are your thoughts?  

'Til next time...

I like the still life and peignoir paint color!

Still life. No question...but I do understand the desire for LARGE! The peignoir looks a dash more pink maybe, which I dig. But who can tell on a computer screen?

I've had a sample of peignoir on my bedroom wall for a month now and I can't decide how I feel about it. The tone is cool and soft but I'm concerned it might read too grey. I'll keep staring at it for another month :)
