Minimalist interior design have been a popular choice for some time, incorporating neutral shades, both through furniture and accessories. But who says you need everything beige to be on trend? Bold, vibrant colours paired with muted tones can create a modern look and inject some colour into your home.

By adding a statement sofa to your living space, you’ll create a focal point and be bang on trend. We’ve rounded up some easy ways to style brightly coloured sofas, which we hope will inspire you…

Do Your Research

One of the first things you need to before committing to a brightly coloured sofa and re-decorating any living space is plan; trawl through magazines and online sites such as Pinterest, to seek inspiration and help you choose a style you’ll love. We’ve put together a Pinterest board with some of our favourite bold interiors to inspire you and bring out your inner interior designer.

Find Your Perfect Sofa

Once you’ve sourced inspiration and know what style you have in mind, now is the time to start looking for your perfect piece of furniture. Whether you want to style your room around your sofa, or vice versa, you need to decide what material will best suit your theme? Print off images of styles you love and keep them close to hand when shopping, making it easier to imagine the finished result. Create a cosy interior with bright fabrics or a modern look with sleek leather upholstery. Also take into consideration your lifestyle –  any children, pets, to decide what material will work best in your home.

Keep Walls Neutral

Make sure your sofa is the centerpiece of your living room by keeping walls a neutral shade and show off the bold, vibrant colour. Shades of white and grey work well paired with contrasting shades of fuchsia and green to create a modern take on the minimalist trend. One of the big interior design trends for 2015 is lush colours of lime green, which look perfect paired against charcoal walls.

Tie in Accessories

If bold colours all over sound a bit too much, tie in accessories a similar shade to your sofa to add subtle hints against neutral walls. Look for small items such as tables, wall art, rugs and books for a quirky, personalised touch to any living space. Once you’ve got used to the bold colours, choose contrasting accessories; cushions and throws with vibrant prints for a fashionable update.
