3 Ways To Work With A Neutral Sofa

It doesn't have to be plain, predictable. and boring


Without a doubt, a neutral sofa is a safe choice when sprucing up the living area. It matches any palette, it makes shopping for furnishings and accessories easier, and it gives your space a distinct classic appeal. However, there are some who would instantly think that it's too plain, boring, and quite difficult to maintain. Do not fret as just like vanilla, a neutral's charm lies in its ability to blend in with any style or color scheme. Get ready to be creative and check out these easy tricks:

Liven it up with pops of color and hints of bright hues.

Your sofa can function like a blank canvas—allowing you to experiment and come up with an interesting color combo. If you can't commit to a certain style just yet, be creative when it comes to choosing pillows, throws, and even curtains. Consider going for shades of yellow, blue, and green for a lively feel.

Experiment with your walls.

Since you already have a neutral piece, go and take a risk with your walls. A bold wallpaper—showcasing a bold hue or fun patterns—would look extra quirky when paired with your sofa. The brilliant thing about it is both elements get to standout—the wall with its arresting colors and your sofa with its understated simplicity.

Achieve balance with accent pieces.

With your sofa serving as the anchor piece in the space, you may choose to go avant-garde with your other key items such as the accent chair, coffee table, and carpet. A neutral couch with a classic form can tie the look together—helping you achieve a clean and streamlined home.
