Pink? Aqua? Gray? the Settee.

I'm Having a Deep Pink Inspiration!
{someone stop me!}
~ or not ~

The Settee in my Studio
Wants to be Painted
I know Gray would be classy.
But the upholstery is cream and black (someday I will re-do it to a solid color)
and I'm not sure gray would work with it as it is.
~ I know white would not work until it's reupholstered ~

... AQUA is also a fabulous color ...

This is the actual color, but not quite this yellow.
See why it wants to be painted?

My reasoning is, should I choose a bright color,
I can always re-paint it when it starts to make me gag.

I'd like your opinion
... It helps to see it 'virtually' painted ...

There are aqua accents in this room, but all the colors would work,
...and I have candles in all these hues...

{Do the gray days of winter make you crave color too?}

Next day update:
So far pink has not been the choice my readers are going with.
And I may be coming to my senses.
and I've realized something.
What I really want the most {but don't want to do because
I know it will be one of those projects that I will regret
while in the midst of it} is to re-upholster the couch.
~ Have I mentioned I've never done this before? ~
{but when has that stopped me in the past.....}

My photos make the fabric look better than it is in real life.
If it was white and black I could paint the wood white.
After viewing these photos my actual couch looks dirty to me.
Interesting how taking a photo can make one see more clearly.

I will now be searching youtube for how to re-upholster.
Hey, wait.  Have any of you tried painting your upholstery with chalk paint?

Oh dear, I just had to come back and I think I like the gray too....hey, how about the aqua in summer, and the gray in winter? OH SO HARD!

Oh My I do adore your settee. If you are in a pink frame of mind then that is what you should have. In this post the aqua is striking and has the most elegant drama. Decisions, least it will be easy to change when you wish to. Be Brave and Bold...
