At Modern Sofas, we love a good bold velvet sofa that is capable of making a statement in a living room. But we know it is not for everyone. Also, it can be quite the challenge to decorate the space around a statement piece while making sure it looks stylish and not overwhelming. So today we are sharing 6 tips – and inspiration! – on how to decorate around a bold furniture piece.
Keep it simple.
The first tip is to keep it simple. As you can see in the picture above, with a bold sofa there is no need to add many things to create a sophisticated living room set, as the sofa speaks for itself. Nevertheless, the designer added a piece of art that sets the color palette for the room.
Pair it with neutrals.
Another tip is to pair a bold sofa with neutrals. It tones down the décor while still create a welcoming and elegant space. This will help you make the sofa the focal point.
Go all in with color.
If you’re a fan of colour, embrace it. Preferably, stick to a palette of about three colors just to make sure the space doesn’t feel overwhelming.
Play with the color.
To create an elegant and harmonious room, take the color of the sofa and use it to create some interesting details.
Let the sofa make the statement.
In this set, the velvet sofa is the only green piece and stands out from the rest of the décor in a fantastic way.
Stick to a single color palette.
As you can see in the living room furniture set above, the color palette has different shades of blue, grey and white. You can still achieve an interesting look by playing with different shades, textures and patterns.
