I like the basic plan but I'm planning on a peninsula instead of the island. Can you give me an idea of what the measurements are for the rooms/areas; including the size of the peninsula?

Hi! Glad you like the chair. It is my husband's favorite! We have two others in different colors in our home -- one in the basement and one in his office. It is a Barcalounger. We puchased it from Andreas Furniture in Sugarcreek, Ohio. Hope this helps.

Agriqueen, do you have any other pictures where it does not appear as yellow, thinking of using it in living room and hallways. Also in a room with a green accent wall.

prmg, I do not have any other pictures. I would recommend finding a place that sells Benjamin Moore paint and trying a sample of the color before committing to it. I love the Dunmore Cream. It does not look so "lemony-yellow" on the walls as it does in the picture. It does look different throughout the day as the light changes. In the evenings it is especially warm and welcoming when we have the lights dimmed. We have been in our home five years and I still love the color.
