We have a sofa made from a red and off-white ticking fabric. It’s a surprisingly neutral color that can be accented in many different ways. So first, we paired the sofa with a distressed blue chest for a comfortable cottage look and used different blues throughout the room to pull it together.
Next, we updated the look of the sofa by adding lots of pillows and huge pops of coral. The red and off-white ticking isn’t far from a coral color, so the pillows worked beautifully to make the sofa fun and modern. The driftwood table is an accent that emphasizes the non-traditional look.
In the final version, we added slipcovered Pottery Barn chairs to the room. The fabric on these chairs is a muted green, brown, purple, and blue. Because the colors were muted, they worked perfectly with the muted colors of the sofa. The pillows on the sofa don’t compete with the other colors in the room – shades of taupe would also be nice.
One sofa – three color palettes. How fun is that?
