1 Sofa 3 Ways

The best part about decorating a home is that there isn't only one way to do it, there are a million different ways to decorate! One of the best pieces of advice we give is to invest in big pieces of furniture that are good quality and neutral in color because these will be able to accommodate your home no matter how much your style changes. To show you this in action, we took a neutral sofa from Crate & Barrel and styled it 3 different ways in 3 totally different styles. Now, get ready to be amazed at how different one single piece of furniture can look by switching up a few accessories!

The Crate and Barrel sofa of choice:


OPTION #1: Warm + Welcoming

Interior Design Warm and Welcoming Sofa

This space screams "sit down, relax and put your feet up!" All the textures and colors here are warm and instantly inviting. The round coffee table and dark end tables create a casual look and the artwork over the sofa provides a familiar photograph that makes you feel at home. Having an arched lamp that hangs over the sofa frees up the end tables for drinks and electronics. Overall, this space is down-to-earth and a place everyone will feel welcome in.


OPTION #2: Calm + Sophisticated

This space also wants you to relax but in a more calm and sophisticated way. The color scheme is so relaxing that you will never feel overwhelmed or anxious here. The tiny pops of colors in the curtains and lumbar pillow are just enough to keep it interesting but subtle enough to be considered a neutral room. The trick to achieve this look is to add in so many varieties of texture that keeps the space from looking too cold.


OPTION #3: Dramatic + Modern

After looking at options #1 and #2, you would probably never guess this sofa could look good in this room. Obviously, this space could have a more modern sofa but this Crate and Barrel sofa works and makes this modern and dramatic color scheme more warm and approachable. I love this 3rd option because it proves that if you have a few neutral, timeless pieces of furniture, you can try new styles and color schemes without investing in new big ticket items!
