obsessing over: the emerald velvet sofa

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:

currently crushing: west elm, onekingslane, room and board, onekingslane, chairish

ahh, be still my heart. so what do you think, are you crushing on emerald velvet too?

    Wow, those colors look really bold. You need to be really sure on what you want, or it could become a big mess. I love it but I don’t think I could pull it off. I typically stay to the neutrals so I don’t make some kind of design mistake. I’m not that good
