Styling a sofa is one of those talents, along with accessorizing a coffee table, that not everyone is born with and many of us have to turn to the pros for ideas. Thankfully, there have been a number of articles, blog posts and even a lookbook dedicated to the subject so have no fear, help is here!
Roxy at Society Social brought 1 white sofa, 11 designers (two of whom we know personally – yeah for Eddie and Lisa) and 52 pillows together to produce Project Sofa, a lookbook that shows you what you can do with a white couch (besides cover it in throws and pray that the boys and dogs won’t stain it!)
The March issue of HGTV Magazine features an article on how to create different pillow combinations for its cover star, a pale blue couch. Perhaps the editors realized that the white sofa they styled five different ways online was a tad impractical for the everyday family!
But then again, we know Kate at Centsational Girl has kids and she opted to style a cream club sofa with patterned pillows and a great rug.
Regardless of the style and color of your sofa, picking the right pillows and piling them on will add a bit of polish… as long as they don’t end up on the floor! Here’s to sitting pretty this weekend.
