So, today has been a not-so-fun shopping day. I was excited to go out and look for our recliner for Knox’s room and finally make a firm decision on our nursery furniture. I had great luck at Ashley Furniture and bought this recliner.
I really wanted one that was a little darker, but this was the only style I really liked. What is with these poofy leather recliners?? This was the only one streamlined enough that I could actually live with.
So, after I bought the chair (which will arrive on the 6th), DH and I went to the baby furniture store… again. We pretty much fell into the same argument as last time. We both agree on the crib and dresser we like (Summer’s Evening by Creations), but I hate the color it comes in. It only comes in black, white and cherry. Normally, black would be great, but it wouldn’t match our new chair or our bedding very well. So, cherry is really the only option. I HATE the wood color. Trevor, of course, loves it and thinks it’s the best thing ever made. I am in a major quandry, here. I feel like espresso wood would be too dark with the new chair, leaving me to find something in between cherry and espresso… yeah, good look with that. I only found Munire furniture in “Sienna” that would possibly work, but I didn’t like the furniture. I don’t know what to do!
Call me crazy, but I feel like the cherry is too “country” looking. I really hate wood tones unless they’re super dark. All of our furniture is either black, antiqued black, espresso or really dark. This is outside of my normal comfort zone. I would love some opinions from you guys, because I am really at a loss. Do you think espresso would look stupid with this chair?
