Couch Surfing

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

India Today - - COVER STORY -

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.
