Q: Hi. We have a living room/entry way which receives very little natural light due to the fact that we have a front porch. We just ordered new living room furniture which will be delivered at the end of February. But, with the silvery blue fabric and the chestnut leather, I am trying to pick a color. Could definitely use some help!

We went to Pottery Barn and got some basics: two leather swivel chairs in Chestnut and a rolled arm sofa in Everyday Velvet Platinum. We have medium brown wood floors and a fire place in the room. We know we need to add lights to the room. Currently, we have taupey-cream/greige walls. I would like to punch it up. Possibly a darker blue or a gray blue but so unsure.

Also, we need some budget friendly ideas so that my kids don't just come in and dump their things everywhere. As you can see, the room is a catchall for everyone's stuff.
