Darling Husband and I are in the process of buying our first home so I’m day dreaming about decorating.
Curently we have a white couch which has not survived very well. Our cat has definitely been rough on it and so has Darling Husband. I don’t want to put it in the family room when we move, (it’ll be getting moved to the office where it will be less used).
But now I’m stuck on what color couches to look at. The house is a blank slate as we’ll be painting anywhere we move. I really prefer rooms with light colors and airy feels but I obviously am not going to make the same white couch mistake again.
So bees, what color is your couch and do you like it? Any suggestions for colors for me to consider that will still give me that airy look but handel daily use well?
Photos are always welcome!

Our sofa is Natuzzi microfibre- a light milk chocolate color. It cleans up like a breeze. They even have a guarantee that they will come and remove any stain you are unable to remove yourself.
I change up my accent colors winter and summer. We use burgundy in the winter and turquoise and green in the summer and they all look great with the sofa color.

Our current couch is an ugly huge blue sectional that is going to end up in the bonus room of our new house. So I’m in the market for a new sofa and love seat for the downstairs living room of our new place!

By The Way – it’s an Ashley piece. I have to find the site to link you to it. It’s a reclining couch as well. I loves it. We wanted to buy more pieces, but it’s just the two of us in the apartment so no need right now.

Ours is a charcoal microfiber sectional. We actually just got it last month because our old couch broke.
ETA: This is right after they dropped it off. We’ve since rearranged stuff at bit and added wall art.

We got our couch for free from my husband’s grandma, and it was actually brand new because she moved into a furnished condo and didn’t want it, but it is kind of hideous! Beige, green, and red plaid… yikes. Luckily it has a nice shape, and everything else in the room is fairly neutral, so it’s okay until we upgrade.

Ours is a lightish-medium brown in a suede-like material (but it’s not actually suede). It’s from Big Lots because we needed an inexpensive couch before we moved into our apartment but it’s held up perfectly so far.

Our living room walls are a mushroomy taupe with a red accent wall, the couch is a chocolate brown microfiber and the loveseat is a taupe color. Not very light and airy, but super comfy.

@MrsRuby: that’s the same color as our sofa! Good taste!

Our couches are dark brown leather, just because they hold up amazingly well to pet and person abuse, and they never look dirty. We have light coloured throws/pillows and accent furniture, so it makes the room look a lot lighter.
