So excited to see all this conversation! I love when people chat it up in the forums!
I suggest painting your brown furniture the same color as the walls, so the pieces become shapes in the room, as opposed to items that you’re focusing on because of their color contrast. Once the furniture recedes into the wall palette, you’ll be able to start from scratch in a way and establish your own minimalist (or whatever) style!
Hope this helps! Have fun decorating!
