I have a weekend cabin. I keep a large shopping bag in my bedroom and whenever I think of something I need to bring down I throw it in the bag. (i.e. toilet paper, books, DVDs, art supplies, candles...)

With a toddler, I'd recommend picking up a nice sofa at Goodwill or Craigslist. Something nice and bouncy. You can have your classy sofa later.

If you're going to keep the sofas, white will make them look really dingy. I'd go with a pale honey/gold color. Get a fan deck and match up a color with some of the tones in your rug or fireplace, or from that tile in your entry. The current blue paint looks kind of shiny right now - I'd go with a matte finish paint. (I actually like the blue. Cute room.)

Get plain white paint, unmixed. Home Depot brand is fine. If you are painting the trim, do the same thing but get it semigloss. Save yourself a bundle, and it's easy to touch up. Trust me, after a couple of months you won't care if it's Dove or Navajo. In fact you'll be thinking that your ceiligs look strange with your beige-y walls. Plain old white is what you want.
