End of Day One - Flooring

We have new carpet downstairs and I must say that it looks GREAT! Since they discontinued the tile that we have in most of our downstairs we couldn't continue it in the TV/Family room. So I thought finding a carpet that was close in color would give it a more cohesive flow.
This is right after the installation and before I vacuumed:

After I moved the furniture back in the coloring in this phot is off - I tried fixing it but it made it worse. Above is a better color match.

Carpet is by Tuftex it is called These Dreams, color #378 Garden Path. The color on my walls has been there for about six years. It is a custom color I had mixed by Benjamin Moore - it is in this room, dining room and kitchen. Love it and no plans to change it! :) The furniture was a house warming gift to ourselves nine years ago - Pottery Barn Manhattan collection, natural water buffalo leather. I don't think they have this option anymore. But I am so glad that we picked this type of leather out, kids, dogs and adults can make scratches on it and it doesn't matter. It all blends in. Coffee table is from a local store called PS & Company. Those gals there are really helpful!

More shots to come - just glad we made it through the first day!
