I've been SO crazy busy that I'm thrilled to have Jenn from Design Shuffle guest post today for smmidge. Show a little "Sofa Love" for everyone's favorite seat in the house. Enjoy! And thanks again to Design Shuffle. -mm
Hi all! My name is Jenn and I write for Design Shuffle, a popular social media and networking website that follows the work of top interior designers and interior design trends from around the world. I recently moved into my first house and I spent weeks choosing the perfect sofa - and I turned to inspiring blogs like Smmidge to help me figure out what was trendy in colours and styles. So you can imagine my delight when I found out I'd be guest posting here about sofa love! Thanks for having me at Smmidge! The centrepiece of any great living room design is often the sofa. In daring colours or shapely forms, traditionally elegant or dramatically modern, sofas can infuse a living space with style and character. These eight rooms will demonstrate how sofa love can inspire the entire interior design of a room.
A square tan sofa is simple and dignified, and looks stylish paired with a bold patterned throw rug and starburst wall decor.
While it would seem that a bright yellow couch would be the loudest thing in the space, it's actually the opposite - the primary hue adds some dimension to the blue papered walls and rug with fuchsia accents.
A blue, yellow, or striped couch may evoke some sofa love, but when joined together, they are even more whimsical. It looks less busy and more streamlined with the matching striped wall art.
A dash of hot pink works well because of the starkness of this casual guest bedroom design - it keeps the space from feeling too bare and drab.
The charming thing about this casual living room is that the pink couches and sheer white curtains are a tad shabby chic, yet the light fixtures and clear acrylic table are oh-so-contemporary.
White-on-white can be very "in" and also overwhelming in starkness, but not here - the living room design incorporates an eclectic textured couch and armchair.
This brown and tan living room looks fashionable with an armless sofa, while the zigzag motif is repeated in the throw cushions and armless chair.
Show some sofa love for this blue beauty. One of the best living room design ideas is using an element that helps to not only balance the space but also give it some character.
