Burgundy Sofa Residing Room Concepts
READER QUESTION from Rebecca —
I’m able to replace this front room from darkish colours to lighter ones and I may use concepts and ideas. I wish to get do away with the crimson accent wall and paint the hearth. I’d additionally like a brand new space rug. The burgundy leather-based sofas have to remain for now. Any ideas?
I really like the problem of this room. Changing a crimson wall is simple, however working round burgundy leather-based furnishings? Not fairly as simple. To get some concepts for a brand new coloration palette for Rebecca, I headed to the web:
I really like the burgundy velvet couch on this image, whereas it’s conventional type, I feel it makes for an awesome accent coloration, on this trendy area.
The stripe of burgundy on the wall on this front room, provides a pleasant pop of coloration, in a shade that matches the burgundy couch with out the overwhelming feeling of a full wall or crimson paint.
This elegant chesterfield couch with classic vibes, mix properly with the distinctiveness of vintage portray assortment and a little bit of musical aspect. So elegant and timeless!
The sophistication of a burgundy velvet couch is ideal for the white general coloration scheme of this open idea front room. Such a fantastic mixture!
This conventional couch present its versatility as soon as once more! I didn’t anticipate it to go properly with industrial white wall, however the distinction of conventional verses industrial provides depth of fashion and works properly on this front room area.
Embrace trendy design by incorporating not only one, however two gorgeous sofas going through one another, nice for dialog. The shortage of coloration on the partitions helps the burgundy to really feel extra impartial. It actually goes properly with smooth picket flooring and glass wall.
I really like how this room does function another coloration on the partitions. The area feels subtle, and the burgundy combined in with pops of pink turns into a pleasant bit of coloration, and feels extra like an accent than a impartial. Trying on the coloration wheel and choosing tertiary colours, is how this works.
The wooden partitions on this area add a pleasant comforting feeling. When you can’t panel your partitions why not strive a wooden look wallpaper, or peel and stick planks.
I wager you’re impressed with how nice a maroon sofa can look now, proper?
Some key issues I picked up on in these shots- cool neutrals to stability out the heat. Not attempting to ‘match’ the decor to the furnishings a lot as discovering items that work collectively.
With these guidelines in thoughts, here’s what I got here up with for Rebecca’s previously crimson room:

Adorning a Impartial Residing Room: Utilizing Current Furnishings
When you’re going for a refreshed look, however have some older items to work round, listed here are my ideas:
Neutrals are your pal:
It might be the worst to attempt to choose colours simply to work with the burgundy sofa, after which really feel like you may by no means change the sofa with out redoing the entire room once more. With a primarily impartial coloration palette like this although, you may mainly swap out the couches for just about any coloration and the room would nonetheless work.
The key is layering the neutrals in order that the room doesn’t really feel too flat. For instance, the grey partitions, white hearth and trim, wooden toned blinds, and gold metallic accents.
Add pops of coloration:
On the flip aspect, you additionally most likely don’t need a brightly coloured sofa with no different decor that coloration within the room to make it really feel cohesive.
A number of delicate pops of coloration right here and there’ll make the area really feel linked, however not staged. The great factor is that these accents might be small issues which might be simple to swap out should you do replace that sofa afterward – a number of throw pillows, a blanket, some books on the mantle.
On this area, though the room was largely naked to start out out with, it felt oddly crowded. The abundance of overstuffed seating, mixed with a rug that was too small for the area, and naked partitions and home windows simply gave it an unfinished look.
To stability issues out, I eliminated one of many chairs and a aspect desk, however added in further seating/storage on both aspect of the hearth. Not solely does it stability issues out and make the hearth the focus of the room, however the sleeker type makes the area really feel much less crowded and extra streamlined.
I additionally added a espresso desk and ground pouf. The pouf might be moved round and used as seating, a aspect desk, or a foot relaxation, whereas the espresso desk makes the room really feel extra completed and pulled collectively, along with offering a useful place to set a drink.
Add dwelling parts:
I’m a agency believer that including plants to any room immediately makes it really feel extra welcoming. The crops on this area add a cool aspect and produce some life into the area that was missing within the earlier than shot.
So what do you suppose? What would you do if this have been your own home?
As all the time, thanks to Cassity and the Remodelaholic crew for having me again every month.
