Need help with den
nancyjSeptember 9, 2012
Den was a former bedroom so it's long-ish and narrow. We live at the beach and I like light/bright, so am thinking of adding horizontal plank wood to walls to add coastal vibe. I'm struggling on a coffee table choice that is narrow (28"-30"), beachy & kid friendly, and also need pillows for the sofa that coordinate with rug and chairs. I'd like to introduce another color (red or orange?) so I don't go overboard with the blue/white scheme. The coffee table I keep going back to is the Bungalow 5 parsons grasscloth table, but not sure if it will make the room too modern looking for my home. I'm attaching photos of room & my inspiration photos. Suggestions for a coffee table & pillows please! Btw, the Joan Miro print is going away so ignore that!

Love your chair and love your rug. The coffee table would also be perfect with a more rustic, sunwashed and planked top. For me the element that does not fit with your beach location and decor is the contemporary leather sofa. I would suggest a slip covered neutral sofa and I would keep the Miro print for it's lively color.

Thanks for your input and the gorgeous photo. Yes, I agree the leather sofa throws off the room. Unfortunately I just bought it and spent a lot (Rest Hardware) so it is likely a keeper. I'm already having a problem with my kids getting sand on the leather so it may be a bigger problem going forward. In any event, any way to keep the sofa and get the look I'm pursuing? thanks.
