So the New Year is here and everyone has the latest and greatest Instagram memes and inspirational sayings and proverbs with the motivational peeps that are up and through their timelines. I’m all for it and have my share or isms as well. However, being the person that I am, I’m over here trying to figure out how to add some funktification to my living room. I wanna add some color, maybe gold and some black and white touches, oooh some shelving would be nice too. I have a blue velvet West Elm sofa that I’m holding on to for dear life and I thought to myself. Well I have a good start because not everyone has a badass sofa, so that brought me to thanken that I need to bring awareness to badass sofas.
Definition: Badass Sofa- daring with color and texture, it’s universal in all homes. Family friendly, bachelor or bachelorette pad or if you’re the kinda person that dances to the beat of your own drum. You need a badass sofa!
So with that being said I gathered up some really cool sofas that push the envelope, but won’t break your pockets and are as sexy as they come. Keep scrolling cause I also give you the tea on where you can find some of these pieces. Hope ya love xoxo
Once you’ve picked out your badass sofa, it will be time to style it. So here are the 5 steps on how to get the look straight out of a magazine.
I call this one funny money! The Hermes throw just adds to the slayage but Lordt look at the sexiness in this couch?!
Step 1 & 2: Always refer to the color wheel it will help you with choosing the right color that will accentuate your sofa. In this case they used leopard print because as a rule of thumb leopard print is a pattern that will go with everything.
Adding a throw such as this Hermes one will help with the textures as well. In this case they chose a monochromatic look but they could’ve also gone with a black and white patterned throw that would pull the colors from the flowered pillow.
If Jonathan Adler has anything to do with it, its going to be extra spicy! This blue is everything!
Step 3: Once you’ve decided the colors your working with, make sure to repeat the same colors in different patterns. This will draw major interest to your sofa, it’s a error proof look
Hello Yellow! This right here brings the sun right on in! If the hubs allowed this kinda behavior in our home, it would make me so happy to see this yellow baby every day.
Step 4: In the case of a lighter color sofa you can play with flower patterns or abstract prints. You can choose to use adjacent colors on the color wheel but there is a little bit more options with colors such as yellow.
This reminds me of the cucumber lemonade that I love so much. Its such a fresh color and girly indeed. I’m here for it
Step 5: The design of the sofa doesn’t stop with the pillows, make sure that you use the accent of your art work and side tables to pull in the patterns. Such as pink touches that are used around the room to pick up the pink in the pillows.
I’m not a big fan of pink but this sofa is everything!
The Sweetest tangerine in the bunch! I love this orange and can see endless decor options for it.
I hope you all liked the selections and click the numbers to see where you can get them. I think we start a revolution to get rid of our greige sofas, cause their too safe and get us a badass one.
