Wall Seeking Sofa: A Living Room Love Story

One of the greatest challenges people face when designing their space, is choosing a color palette. There’s the sofa, the rug, the throw pillows, the wall color… so many variables to account for that it makes the process overwhelming. So if you suffer from decidophobia or just want to give your space an air of design confidence, try on the idea of a monochromatic living space.

Why do we love this look? The matching sofa and wall color combo envelope your space in color and create a sense of luxury. There is a sort of “casual drama” to the look, as the heavy saturation pushes dramatic, while the lack of contrast pulls minimal. Less visual information for the brain to digest, the monochromatic palette promotes pattern and texture from sidekicks to stars.

Browse these 8 perfect pairings below. And if you’re feeling adventurous, see it in your space with Modsy.

Stylist tip: If the idea of a color-drenched interior makes you seasick, try limiting it to just one accent wall behind your sofa.
