    I like the beige with the walls but I would worry about stains if you have pets, guests, or kids. I like the floral but I don’t think it goes with the room based on the pics.

    @shaynapunim:  I like all of them, but I prefer neutral couches.

    I like the Blue Floral, but it doesn’t go with the walls… 

    I typically like neutral colors on couches also, but I can’t tell from the picture if it goes well with the walls or not.

    Checker pattern doesn’t go at all/too much with the painting above/not a fan anyways.

    Out of all of them, if you don’t plan on painting, I would go with the beige 🙂

    I think couches are investment pieces and should be neutral so that you can change accessories and wall color around them! I think the beige is the best choice here.

    We actually have an Ethan Allen sofa in the same fabric as the beige sample you are showing. We’ve only had the sofa since February but LOVE it. (We chose an ivory color.) The best thing about the fabric is that it is “pet friendly” (cat has tried clawing it several times and it shows nothing) and is easy to change up with different shape/colors/patterns of throw pillows and blankets. We currently are between residences and living in an apartment and wanted something that would work in any future space we may place it. For that reason I would recommend the neutral color.

    Only buy a print fabric if you are head over heels in love with it. Since you cannot decide, that tells me that neither print makes you all swoony. So I’d go with a solid fabric.

    @shaynapunim:  I like the floral but I think the beige would go best with how you have the room and be more versatile if you decide to redecorate or paint.

    If you are buying a quality sofa that you will use for years, I would always go with a neutral color. You may change your mind in a couple of years , hate blue and be stuck with a blue check or floral sofa.

    Choose the neutral and add color and print in toss pillows.
