If there’s one piece of furniture that is common in all interiors, no matter what part of the world you live in, it’s the sofa. Everybody loves a good sofa and we particularly like it when this conversation starter becomes the topic of conversation! So whether your living room boasts of an elegant ol’ gravitas-filled Chesterfield or a super comfy and casual slipcovered sofa, if you are looking for quick simple tricks to breathe some life and style into it, come take a seat! You have so arrived at the right place.
Here’s a simple, fail-safe guide to a gorgeously styled sofa using cushions -
Style tip #1: Perfectly imperfect
If you have been following our posts, you’d know that we are all about the tastefully tattered, warm patinas, and delightfully disheveled looks - in short, we fall for the beauty and charm of the perfectly imperfect.
We apply the same approach to styling the sofa and mind you, it works wonderfully well for all colors and sizes (but we are known to melt for neutrals). Instead of going for even numbers of cushions, opt for odd numbers. Uneven compositions are visually appealing as they force your eyes into the picture to seek balance, to find the missing element therefore making your eyes travel around the sofa.
Style tip #2: Color coordinate
This is simple and fun. All you have to do is to carefully study your interior scheme and pick a color that will effortlessly match and blend with other elements of your room. Look at this gorgeously coordinated setting here. We designed the cushions in keeping with the color scheme of the window dressing to create a bonhomie, cohesive vibe.
Style tip #3: Add some quirk
As much as we are into color-coordination and clean, sophisticated look, we also like to indulge in strategic burst of color and whimsy. If you want to sprinkle some character and eccentricity without going overboard, then cushions are a good place to start with.
A home as they say is the environmental extension of your personality and we did our best to illustrate Parineeti Chopra cheerful persona through all things colorful and quirky. The settee is plumped with pretty cushions and creates a snug seating for two.
The best part about styling your sofa with cushions is their swap-ability! You can easily change them to accommodate your mood, season or latest trend fixation.
