For the longest time, we’ve had a neutral, modern sofa (tan, light grey, cream, etc) – both at home and at the studio. But I’ve always wondered whether I should dip my toe in the colorful couch trend that Pinterest can’t seem to ignore.
There are a few couches / sofas (whatever you prefer to call them) that have really caught my eye. But I’m just not sure I can pull the trigger because I often like to change up the look of a room and without a neutral couch, I wonder if things will always just kind of look the same? What are your thoughts? I’d love to hear your opinion.
Let’s go through the rainbow and figure this out, shall we?!
Mustard yellow seems like a good in-between option. It’s colorful, but still feels neutral because of it’s proximity to tan, etc. I love the shape of this couch too! Via Copy Cat Chic.
What do you think of this sky blue sofa popping out of the corner of this space, designed by Amber Interior Design? I like it…especially against the more neutral backdrop of those leather chairs and natural coffee table.
This green sofa from The House that Lars Built is definitely a bold pop of color! And since the rest of the space is pretty neutral, the room feels balanced, not overwhelmed by the color.
This dusty pink sofa from Pop and Scott has always been a favorite of mine. Definitely a pop of color, but again, still feels kind of neutral somehow.
Persimmon orange is never a color I thought I would like for a couch, but this one (from Article), is really gorgeous.
Lilac! This pretty pastel looks surprisingly good on this sofa from Urban Outfitters.
Okay, so now that you’ve seen some examples, what are your thoughts? What do you think of the colorful couch trend? And would you ever buy a colorful couch for your own home?
