mockin' it up in the office part 7,000

At this point I feel like I've done the mock up for the office about 7,000 times. A lot of things have remained constant like the desk and the couch and the floating shelves but this is the latest:
Indulge me in my following ramblings because it's a $2000 piece so I need to think through my cheapskateness. I saw this console on designlovefest's office makeover in red (i'd get yellow) and I think it's perfect for the space because I've been wanting something that was a) long and b) wood c) not totally white and d) unique. And it definitely is that: one of a kind. I mean no one has something like this piece anywhere. I've been reading "Good Bones, Great Pieces" and they recommend you buy something that you can imagine living in a lot of rooms in your home over many years and while I primarily want it for the office, I can see it being used in the living room (you know me and yellow) or a guest room or a kid room. If I did get this or another type of credenza, it would go right here under the window and house the printer inside the doors and various other office supply things. Above it I'd hang some hanging shelves to display the girly movies and girly books. I would love a white TV but I think I'll go Samsung because they have built in Netflix and other cool Apps. Though we all know what I'd really be watching...
And I think I do want that hot pink coffee table. I was thinking it would be cool to get a few of those poufs to prop my feet on or as additional seating especially since Lyla and I had a little tea party in here last time she was over and I could have used a little pouf as I tried to prevent her from clinking the glasses with a force that would shatter them. There's a little video I'll post later.
So: opinion time. Michelle: what do you think of the console? Matt: are those poufs ugly and will the cats ruin them? Ambre: when are you gonna come visit? Miri: Is that tea thing too busy?

love the console. I could totally see that thing in a kid room with a changing table pad on the top for a changing table that doesn't look like the ugly one's that everybody has. I use the top of a long dresser for mine... it will go lots of places in your house... it will go no places in my house but it's perfect for you. buy it. the color looks really neutral.
