LINDA/MOM this is for you...living room sofa



as i promised, here is our sofa, i called it moss but i think its more olive. I tell you its nothing to write home about lol. This room is and has been an work in progress, trying to add color is difficult for a color phobic person as myself.

Hi Janet. I saw you over at Vicky's so thought I'd pop in to see your sofa. Actually I like it. Even though it appears quite neutral it still has some color .......and its not beige. :)

Thank you for sharing it.

I love that color!!! I have that same ottoman in my family room too!!! I also have one that holds a hide-a-bed...for those sleep over occasions! lol
Your room is very calm...I think you did a great job!

There is nothing wrong with minimal color in fact as I get older the more I am leaning towards neutral (lol) Hugs French xoxox

Hi Janet,
I have been going through a mossy/ olive green phase the last few months so find your living room more then appealing! I especially like your wall color and area rug, looks like a room I would enjoy spending time in. ~Cathy~

Did I ever tell you that I love your style?

I really love that picture hanging on the wall above your sofa!!! Reminds me of my Wisconsin roots.

If you really want to TRY adding some color, maybe you could get some colorful throw pillows. I'm thinking in the red/terra cotta, or orange family. That way, once they are there if you don't LIKE them,if they enhance your colorphobia, you can just hide them. But I think they would give you a "splash" that would be quite fun.
