When it comes to choosing a color of a couch, I tend to stay on the neutral side. Sure, a bright pink couch might be fun for a single woman or a 13-year-old girl, but not so much for my upcoming move with my boyfriend. While we haven’t entirely decided on the color of our couch (or color of the slipcovers if we end up inheriting his parent’s old couches), I’m assuming it will be some sort of a neutral.
Neutral sofas are a great starting point of the room. You can bring it tons of colors in other elements, such as wall art, decor items and accent pillows. While pinning some photos for my apartment inspiration, I came across this photo of a room styled around a gray couch and fell in love. It’s simple and gender-neutral (for the most part), but has fun pops of color and details throughout.
To offset the neutral couch, add fun colored pillows. A patterned rug in the fun chevron print makes the room appear larger. Add a detailed chair and a shaped mirror for accent pieces. Here’s how to get the look for yourself.
