Which Color Sofa Should I Buy?
I get so many questions lately about what is better, a neutral sofa or a colored one. I think there is no one right answer, it depends on several factors such as the current color of your walls or the frequency at which you change your furniture and accessories. If you find yourself undecided at the time, here are some pros and cons to help you choose the perfect color for your new sofa:
- Pros. Neutral colors go well with any other color. You could change the color of your walls often and play with pillows in solid colors and vibrant prints.
- Cons. A neutral sofa can be boring if it’s not accessorized correctly. To win this war, don’t forget to add color to your decorations with pillows and other textiles. Don’t let these get lost between the sofa and walls. Example, if you are planning on buying a gray sofa and your walls are gray, don’t use white and/or beige cushions, opt for something that contrasts, like turquoise or lavender, the key is to complement the space with colorful accents and make the space look interesting and exciting.
A neutral sofa is for you if…. You love the idea of re decorating your living room every season. You love color in the details, like cushions and curtains and/or are planning on painting your walls in the near future.
Tips for a wow effect: Mix two or three different colored pillows for an incredible effect.
- Pros. Colored sofas are amazing! True, a sofa in a bold color adds that edgy and unique touch to any home decor. Imagine a cobalt blue sofa with vanilla pillows and golden details. Doesn’t this sound dreamy?
- Cons. With a colored sofa it will be more difficult to find the right color for your walls in the future, also coordinating pillows, curtains and other accessories might be more difficult.
A colored sofa is for you if… your walls are a neutral color (white , gray , brown) and you would love to add an element that makes a statement. Also, if you are not attracted to the idea of changing things frequently, a colorful sofa would make your space look special and unique for years and years to come.
Tips for a wow effect: Use pillows with interesting textures and monochrome prints.
