Hello AT, We have just moved into a new condo and are starting to decorate. First up is the living room. We are keeping the dark side tables and bookcase, but are going to trade in the couch and chair for a sectional. We are thinking about a Room and Board "York" sectional in a light taupe microfiber ("Arctic Desmond")...

However, before we take the plunge and order it I wanted to get some input from AT on fabric color. Is the taupe a good choice for this room, or are there others in the Desmond fabric we should think about instead? We are a little concerned about it blending into the walls, but we also want to stay away from anything too dark that will make the room seem smaller (it's already pretty small). The floors are a light cherry hardwood. Also, the trim and paint are more grey and less green than they appear in the photos. Thanks! Meryl Anyone?
