Q: We were just transferred overseas and moved into a furnished rental apartment. We need a new vision to work with, since the furniture is all dark and heavy and too big for the space. We bought a cheap cow rug and a bargain small coffee table, added some pillows from home, and found a cute wooden deer head to give it a fun twist, but the already existing brown leather coach and cream walls and curtains are still too formal for us.

We are thinking about getting two new cheap side sofas, small and light, at a bazaar or antiques shop and upholstering them with a nice different pattern in the fabric, but are open to ideas. Now, it is too beige, dark wood and cream for me! Any suggestions?
