Every swanky lounge needs a HUGE white leather couch.

A while back, I got an idea for my red family room. I'd paint it orange.

The idea was mostly inspired by this picture:

Y'all know how much I love Frank Sinatra. Well, Frank Sinatra famously loved the color orange. Wouldn't it be cool if I turned my family room into a lounge that Frank woulda like to hang in?

I knew I wanted a leather couch. I knew I wanted the room to be orange, chocolate and cream. Here's the lovely before:

And, here it is now: Ta-da!

Even the mantle got a upgrade. Katie Bower would be proud of this because, it's all stuff I already had, except the hurricane and candle are new.

This couch is seriously huge. After looking high and low, I found it at Ashley Furniture. It's individual pieces, and you could buy as many as you needed and arrange them to fit your room, which was really nice. And after pricing leather sectionals, I'm confident we even got a pretty good deal, to boot!

I still haven't finished the other side of the room. I want to get a high-top table and bar stools, and put in a bar. Hopefully, that is coming soon. Unfortunately, it would be really difficult to run water over to make it bar a wet bar, so, that's off the table.

Now, who's coming over for martinis?

Guess what I got last week?

A couch!

Stay tuned for the pics. BTW, I LOVE it so far.
