    I voted that I love it!!! And I am jealous of the space – lol.

    Also love the idea of some yellow in the room…it is such an “in” color right now.

    @bmo88:  Have you thought about a sectional instead of two smaller couches? I think it would look better considering the size of the room. Then you could have one or two accent chairs as well. My parents have a dark brown sectional and then an orange leather chair and it looks great with the pop of color. Maybe you could find something similar but yellow. I don’t love the pattern or the chair itself you picked out, I think you need a more modern style, the one you showed is very old fashioned to me.

    To be honest, the sunset in the window is distracting. I think if you’re going for the grey, yellow, white, and black, it’ll look nice – I just can’t see it from that design because my eye is drawn to the window that won’t be in the room. In addition to the yellow, I think you should also add a splash of purple (a dark plum) for some contrast.

    Do you have your mind made up on the wall color? It’s an open plan which pretty much means you have to use it in the whole space.

    I would use a grey with a brown undertone.

    For the chair you could use a pattern, or you could use a solid like a brown leather, then add color and pattern with accent cushions to the sofa and chair.
