Living Room Re-Do

This spring I finally repainted the living room - Benjamin Moore Edgecomb Gray.  I also patched the walls and ceiling (painted the same white as the kitchen and bathroom).  I wanted to go more neutral and calmer.  I like taupe, sage green and a blue-green like Benjamin Moore Wythe Blue (which is in the bathroom).  I decided to use coral as an accent, but not super-bright.  I tried to go with those bright pops of color so popular now, but it just didn't look right.  The large picture is one my best friend gave me, which I've been afraid to hang on the plaster walls because it's so heavy.

I also rearranged the furniture to the only way it really fits.  This room has a large opening to the "hallway"/stairs and dining room, two windows, a front door, and an arch to the adjacent parlor.

I still have to reglaze the windows, which is why the curtains are closed.
Have to remove the door, strip and repaint.

I just bought a new couch from Ethan Allen, the Oxford:
Oxford Sofa
I ordered the 76-inch-wide one because the space is so tight in this room. The fabric is brushed velvet in Kent Surf:

I'm going for a more sophisticated look. Here's the before:

Edgecomb Gray is one of my favorite grays! Looks great! I also love the new couch choice - it's going to look so nice!

Thanks! Can't wait to see how it all looks together.
