Yeah, yeah, yeah. I can't resist stupid Internet cliches.

The stain is medium fruitwood, the fabric JF Fabrics Sensa (a heavy duty microsuede) in Sweet Basil. The fabric is quite close to the darkest sage green in the curtains, but it appears bluish in comparison because the curtains look gold when lit up by the sun. I like the look. I'm going for an arboretum sort of theme, and trees in the real world have similar color variation.

I won't believe this is actually your living room without a copious amount of video game systems near the TV.

We're working on that. Most of said systems are scattered around the house until we get something over near corner to keep them in order. (The TV stand storage is occupied by other devices, and I don't want to put any of the existing shelving over there because it's tall and would invite Cookie to hang out on the curtain rods. She got up there before when the cat tree was in that corner.) We did hook up the mini computer and Wii (courtesy of Ogre's mom), but you can't really see them in the picture.

Congrats on finally finding a Wii. Our wireless is on the fritz today, but once it's back up I'll send you our code.

Oh my - a real looking living room . . .
Wow. That looks awesome. A real decorated living room! Looks great, not too homey and not to mod-minimalist and the tree theme is great. Wow.

Re: Oh my - a real looking living room . . .
Thanks! I'm going for something that looks pulled-together but not bland or fussy.
