So I bought two of these pillows from Crate and Barrel:

I'm looking for a couch to put them on. I've never been a fan of leather but now that I have a child I realize our light-colored fabric couch is not so practical.

I think I've settled on the Nick sofa from Macy's:
I like the lines and the price is right. It's a little dark but I realize that's something I need to get used to when it comes to leather.  My favorite is the IKEA Stockholm sofa but leave it to me to find the only piece of furniture in IKEA that's not cheap. I just can't justify the $1500 for a couch that probably won't last more than five years.
Now I need to figure out a paint color that won't bring down the dark furniture. Currently our living room is Twig Basket by Behr.

The color reads darker and greener on the wall. I love it but we're in the process of looking for a new house (more on that later) and I want to do something different.
