Want a fresh, updated look for your beige sofa? With just a few pillows you can have a new look in an instant!
This Metro sofa at HomeWorld is a perfect blank canvas for an instant color makeover.
We asked HomeWorld‘s Visual Merchandising Manager Kay Kamae-Kaopuiki to share 5 completely updated looks for a beige sofa just by adding accent pillows. Something anyone can easily do at home.
1. Traditional with a twist
For a traditional look, sofas will usually host two or four pillows. But having three pillows puts a twist on tradition. Adding a floral pattern to solids is the punctuation to brighten up this color palette.
In design, odd numbers tend to be more artful. Try one, three, or five, depending on the size of your furniture and the look you want (one for a chair, three or five for a standard 88-inch sofa). (source: www.realsimple.com)
2. Island style fun
There’s a fine line between looking like a cheesy hotel room and a luxurious retreat. Just a hint of the tropics is captured with this island style pillow mixed with a pair of solid pillows to look tropical but understated.
3. Unexpected patterns
It’s not the easiest thing to mix patterns without looking too busy. Kay suggests selecting at least one color in common to give the arrangement unity as an easy way to mix and match patterns. This is definitely a designer’s tip worth trying as the overall look is coordinated and alluring.
4. Global-inspired prints
Give your room a worldly feel with geometric black and white tribal patterns. Its bold architectural designs add interest to your room while still maintaining harmony.
5. Modern with a nod to traditional
Here’s a classic combination of modern and traditional. Kay paired fun colors with a bold traditional design. This adds playfulness to your room while still being crisp and chic.
