You saw it, you loved it, you just had to buy it but what exactly do you put with that lovely brown sofa to make your living room decor work for you? Your sofa is almost certainly going to be the largest piece of furniture in the room so there’s no sneaking it into an existing room design by just crossing your fingers and hoping for the best.
No. Your beautiful brown sofa should be given a warm welcome with a complementary colour scheme, and we’re here to show you how with the help of some brown sofa centric visualisations.
Looking at home in a mid century modern living room, a ruddy brown sofa can be visually cooled by the implementation of a grey area rug and grey accent chair. A duo of marble topped coffee tables complete the look.
Earth tone palettes are always a safe bet when working with brown sofas, and can be very effective. A natural coloured area rug and wooden floor are the perfect base for a brown sectional, and natural greenery provides amazing contrast. Painting one wall in solid fresh white is a good idea so that the overall scheme doesn’t become too muddy.
Curtains don’t have to match the colour of the sofa or sofa cushions; the selection of random sized throw cushions here are shades of cool mid-brown on a rich warm brown sofa. Two armchairs mirror the silhouette of the sofa rather than its upholstery colour, whilst a black bookcase matches its thin black legs.
Multiple tones of brown in a solid wood herringbone floor make a stunning accompaniment to a brown chesterfield sofa. Grey scatter cushions and curtains balance out the look.
A contrasting accent chair is a great way to boost the look of your brown sofa and keep your room bang up to date.
Well, if you are observant enough, you will see that mostly brown sofa are accompanied with grey carpets or furnitures to look more subtle and outstanding.
