I just painted my living room Light French Gray from Sherwin Williams. I painted the oak banister black and the oaks stair treads black as well. I love the look but hate the furniture. I don't want to repeat the same kind of decorating mistakes I have made in the past and any help would be much appreciated.

I am looking at an English Roll arm sofa from Interior Define(hoping to keep the cost under 1800) but I am having trouble selecting a fabric. Should I go darker or lighter in a gray shade?

What kind of chairs would go nicely in this room? Fabric colors/choices?

What kind and size area rug?

Would I be able to paint the existing coffee table white to save a few dollars?

The room is 17.8 by 11.6 (I measured to the stairs).

Thanks in advance!! Claire
