The Male Equation

The other night, I was in a Pinterest-induced stupor, conjuring up images of what will be in our newly-purchased house in Virginia - code name: Wallingford.(because I know you want to follow that board)

Initially, we'll take a live-with-it-and-plan approach on a lot of the house, but we're tackling a few messier projects before or as we move in. One of those is the Family Room - or what we'll use as a family/tv room.
For starters - it is vewy, vewy small.
...and nondescript.

My hope is to do away with the circa 70s paneling, add some much-needed mill work, and turn it into a jewel box of a room, all glossy, cozy, and layered like so...
Key to my plans are: rich, high-gloss paint (color TBD), and saddle/caramel leathuh.

So, I was stoked when I saw this MCM-esque leather sofa from JCPenney getting good reviews.  The Hubster's not the biggest fan of this style, so....

Me:  "Ben, do you think you could stomach this sofa for the family room at Wallingford?"

Ben:  "It looks like I would slide off."

Score: Ben - 1  Sofa - 0

How do I compete with this?

Happy Monday, peeps.
(P.S. - no baby, obvs)

Leather pants, Ben. Added friction. LOVE the dark, glossy paint. LOVE.

congrats on the purchase of Wallingford Alison, so very exciting!I'm not a fan of leather sofas either so on this one I'm with Ben! Maybe velvet?

I love that sofa and the dark paint! I recently got rid of my hub's ugly old recliners and also a huge (and ugly) leather sofa from our family room, and replaced those with a vintage chesterfild (craigslist find) and a vintage frenchy sofa. And the only reason he agreed with this arrangement was both of the sofas are very comfortable and the french style sofa was big enough for him to lounge, watch tv, and take a nap. Perhaps you can take Ben to JCP sometimes and see if he likes the sofa? Good luck!
