Nola sent in a question for the crowd: Should I buy a white or ivory sofa to replace the gray one (shown below the jump)? The living room/eating nook/living room are all open to each other. The kitchen is soft white, with the posts in a contrasting soft & warm ivory. The living room walls & drapes are the same ivory and I have a light ivory/off-white (natural color) wool rug...

Would it be ok to continue the mixing of white & soft ivory? Or should the sofa really be a richer ivory colour to play up the warmth? The sofa we're considering is here: where both colors are shown.

Please share your thoughts with Nola in the comments below...thanks!
