if you were to open my diary you would probably read, ‘dear diary, today i pinned another emerald velvet sofa. it just looked so perfect sitting next those end tables and i really liked how the pillows popped against it’s luxurious, vibrant fabric. i couldn’t help but stare at it for hours. why are they so perfect? i hope someday we will get to be together. i really believe in my heart that we are soulmates…’
…you get the idea. sofas have been a hot topic for me lately. since my living room is essentially empty i’ve been scouring design magazines and websites trying to figure what styles, shapes and colors i’d prefer. buying a couch is a big deal though, up there with other big pieces like your bed and dining table.

although my design tastes tend to live in more of the neutral area i can’t help but love the pop of vibrancy of the lush hue against a more natural room palette. seating is always a great way to add color as it’s something you can layer and rearrange. one thing to consider with a bold sofa is the surrounding color palette, pulling in different tones of the color throughout the space can help tie everything together.

now i know that emerald velvet may not be the most practical choice for a sofa, my boyfriend definitely gave me some raised eyebrows when i expressed the idea, but i still just can’t deny it!! i’ve picked out some of my faves to share:
ahh, be still my heart. so what do you think, are you crushing on emerald velvet too?
