Should I Choose a Neutral Sofa or Go For A Color?

I’m shopping for a new sofa and it’s fun and frustrating at the same time! The only two choices as far as color go is a neutral (yuk) and a color (yay).  Sound obvious right? So do I choose an “Oatmeal” color to be safe and classic or choose a color because what I have in mind is just so darn amazing?


Let’s list the pros and cons of choosing a neutral:

  • It’s safe
  • It’ll go with any wall color I have
  • I can add some very colorful pillows with great texture
  • It’ll match the multi colored area rug I have
  • It’ll brighten and lighten the room
  • It’s harder to keep clean
  • It’s a bit boring for a Color Expert
  • Cat fur! I have four cats and two are dark gray
  • Not so family friendly as far as color goes

Ok now the pros and cons about choosing a color:

  • It’s far more exciting then a neutral
  • It’ll be more forgiving as far as stains from spills or cats
  • It’ll look great with my wall color
  • Choosing color makes me happy
  • Nobody else I now has this color sofa (not telling yet)
  • It’ll had “wow” to my living room
  • Cat and family friendly
  • It will coordinate with my multi colored area rug

Stay tuned and check back here to see the updates. I need to move quickly if I want to have my living room ready for the Holiday. Wish me luck!

    You can pull this one off, you’re a pro at this. Personally I like the color but I can’t see what else is going on in the room either

  2. As we all know how difficult it would be for YOU to go too neutral … I think it’s a safe bet to say the only surprise will be what wonderful colors we’ll see in that sofa! Now get going … and bring that thing home! 🙂

    Well that’s the trick Arthur. I have a open floor plan and my wall color is similar to the patina green you find on copper. I do have a hue in mind 🙂

    Yes!! Cheryl I will but I have to order it first and that will take about 8 weeks. Oh I don’t like waiting for beautiful [:-[

  5. Fantastic of course you’re the one I would call on I am surprised you have not received any calls from my kneck of the woods…..yet…..I may have to do another blog post about you 😉

    You’re in Florida right? I just got MANY requests from clients in Florida asking for a coastal color palette. Was that you? Thanks if it was 😉
