Two designs for a Room

I have been trying to decide what direction I want to take my lower-level media room towards. On the one hand, I like charcoal grays and rustic furniture with a hint of raspberry. On the other hand, I like pops of color, and I have always been drawn to the colors of the ocean. Also, my favorite color combo is teal and green.

So below are two takes on these mood schemes, if you will. The first, the charcoal gray sofa with rustic accents and a little bit of glamour and berry shades thrown in. What I truly like about this first scheme is that should my mind ever change on the color, it would be easy to switch it up and take it in another direction (what? I would never!)

The second one below has the colors I really gravitate towards, but with the furniture carrying the largest dose of color, it would be more difficult to change it up in the future.
