Sofas are very commonly used in living rooms. They come in a variety of styles, shapes and sizes so there are plenty of options to choose from regardless of the décor of your home. A sofa can be quite cozy and it allows for close interaction with the others. However, not everyone prefers sofas. In fact, there are plenty of disadvantages when you think about it.
A dark shade of purple only featured by one element in the room such as the sofa in this case can be a welcomed detail that contrasts with the beige walls, grey accents and soft lighting. As glamorous and royal as purple can be, it’s a color that can also be used when creating a casual décor. This is possible when opting for an eclectic design that includes a variety of accent colors, prints and patterns.
Perhaps this should be the first step when choosing a sofa. Decide where the sofa will be placed so you know what to look for. If you usually enjoy sitting in front of the TV then that’s where you should place the sofa. But perhaps you enjoy entertaining guests and chatting with them in which case you should create a cozy lounge area in front of the fireplace or facing the bar. Be careful however because placing a sofa parallel to the fireplace in a long and narrow room can make the room even narrower.
In a décor that needs to feel relaxing, serene and minimalist, color is usually not used to its fullest. In this contemporary living room we have a very simple and neutral color palette featuring shades of white, beige and grey. The sofa is an off shade of grey and has two beige accent pillows that stand out in a very subtle way.
