A Simple And Forever Stylish Combination: White Sofa And Colorful Pillows

A very difficult challenge when decorating a room is finding the balance between all the colors, textures and patterns. A smart and simple strategy is to opt for a neutral, minimalistic background and to add splashes of color. This way you emphasize both parts. This works not just for furniture and for the walls but also for smaller accessories.

For example, a very nice idea is to have a white sofa and to complement it with colorful pillows. You can have multiple pillows, each featuring a different color or you can also play with shapes and sizes.’

Combine simple designs with bold colors and patterns for more diversity

You can also opt for multiple patterns and fabrics and you can combine them in all sorts of different ways. The colors of the pillows don’t necessarily have to be bold and vibrant. They can also be pastels as they will stand out either way. Whatever the case is, decide whether or not you want the sofa to be a focal point or if you want it to blend in.
