Wall Seeking Sofa: A Living Room Love Story

At Modsy, we find that 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 result in a space that is enveloped in color and feels luxurious. 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.

To help you get the look, we are profiling a few perfect pairings so you can pick whatever hue appeals to you. Still not convinced? 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.
