The duo from Aamir and Hameeda Interior Designers transform the look of your home by using the same sofa as centrepiece, but by changing the accessories and accents around it
One of the most important pieces of furniture in the living room, the sofa is your ultimate soul mate. It is often the centre of attention around which the décor of a living room revolves. A great sofa can instantly lift the look of your living room if it is selected smartly, has the right upholstery, and the perfect shape. While it is not easy to change the sofa frequently, whenever you are in a mood to give the room a facelift, the easiest and quickest way to do so is by dressing it up with accents. Here are some tricks if you want to use the same sofa to create multiple looks.
Rugged and Rustic
Apart from using cushions, place a vintage chair in a slightly deeper colour tone and place it next to the sofa.
In case you want some adventure and entertain your boys’ group, we suggest bring your 1940s racer motorcycle inside. This will spruce up the mood and give the room a masculine touch.
A Feminine Touch
Introduce accessories such as bright coloured cushions with patterns and animal motifs and give the sofa a new look. You can also use throws on the sofa.
While the spotlight is on the sofa, you can use accents such as vintage Louis Vuitton suitcases and place them just next to the couch. These will add some volume to the room and will lend it a stylish statement.
The centre table can also be highlighted; put a few coffee table books on one corner.
