I'm pretty sure the next couch is gray, but I think an espresso-colored sofa in that place would have the same effect.
I wish the pillow on the chair in front of the fireplace was covered with a brightly colored fabric. Something like the back of the chair in the room below:
Varying shades of brown, with soft white accents. And more purple flowers! I guess I like purple and brown together.
Purple and blue, here's my message to you: thanks for helping me come to terms with a brown couch. I think we can make it work.
