Decorating with a Colorful Sofa

When it’s time to pick out a sofa for a space, it’s common to gravitate toward neutral-colored sofas. Countless spaces look beautiful with a neutral palette, or a color on the walls and a neutral on the sofa. After all, it’s easier to paint the walls than to replace an entire couch. However; if you’re feeling bold and even a little bit daring, amazing things can happen in a space when a colorful sofa is introduced. It can steal the show.

If you’re staging a home for sale, I always recommend painting the walls a neutral color, so a colorful sofa could actually be a great way to introduce some color into the space that the buyers will know is temporary. A colorful sofa can add a lot of personality and charm to a room. Check out these great examples of decorating with a colorful sofa.
