Interior Inspiration: Green Sofas Are For Lovers

While cruising Pinterest last night, I came across the lovely photos above and was instantly captured by the emerald green velvet sofas. The strong black elements and shades of gray and lavender give the rooms an aura of sophistication and romance. 

Colorful and nontraditional, green sofas combined with shades of blue create a calm yet eclectic interior. A strategic throw pillow in an unexpected pattern breaks up the ocean hues and transitions coastal chic to quirky in a flash. 

Looking to counter stark white walls with a punch of color? You could be ordinary and buy a bright lamp or even add art. Or, you could just sit down a beautifully designed olive sofa in the center of the room and call it a day. 

And last, but certainly not least, I'll leave you with my favorites of this series. Both designs were clearly done by someone who knows the interiors industry. Statement rugs, eye catching coffee tables and high style side chairs balance bring the sofas in to the designs rather than setting them apart.

  2. Wouldn't it be wonderful to see the big boy furniture stores (I'm looking at you Crate and Barrel) offer such sumptuous colors as standard choices?

    I'm sage-ed and oatmeal-ed out.
