I'm looking for some decorator advice!
We are changing our home office (in the basement) to be a tv/rec room for the boys.
(I used to work from home, and it made sense to have an 100% dedicated office. Now that I do not work from home, it seems decadent.)
The room is currently painted a light aqua color (practically the color of preg.org). The trim is white (baseboards and door). The floor is Pergo (laminate) in a traditional oak color.
The couch is red: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/S89875856/
The rug is this one: http://www.homedecorators.com/P/Posh_Rug/810/
I thinki I am going to buy a tv stand, coffee table, one or two end tables, and perhaps a small computer desk for this room. (As an aside, this will be the first room in the house that is not hand-me-down, mismatched furniture)
Would you recommend white furniture (to go with the trim)?
"Wood" colored furniture? (This will all be laminate or veneer, I'm have three young boys so I'm under no illusion that this will stay nice for too long. )
I'm planning on getting the furniture from Ikea or someplace similar. My budget is not very large.
