I transformed my neutral farmhouse living room into a colorful, modern and sophisticated space with the help of my beautiful new navy blue velvet sofas from Article. A while back I realized that my living room didn’t really reflect my personality. You can tell by my site, my wardrobe and the craft projects I make that I love color! So I began looking around for inspiration and that’s when I fell in love with the Sven Sofa from Article.
Sleek lines, luxurious velvet all in a rich navy blue color. That’s my heart beating out a rhythm of true love for this new colorful, fun and more modern space.
I was a little worried about that since I bought them online and couldn’t give them a test drive. About three days after my new sofas were delivered, my kindergartener got nail polish on the arm of one of the couches.
I have already had to spot clean a few food stains (when will those little rascals learn to stay in the kitchen to eat?!)
It’s a vintage style rug with shades of navy, aqua, hot pink, mustard, white and gray so I tried to pull those colors out in the accessories.
Throw pillow covers were a super easy and inexpensive way to accomplish that. They brought them into the house, set them up and even took the time to put felt pads on the bottoms of the legs to protect my wood floors.
Then one day I was perusing my local Target and fell instantly in love with this floral print. After a lot of drama that I recorded for you on Instagram Stories, I finally settled on mounting them on wood plaques and using cord covers and I am happy to say I love the final look.
I’m still brainstorming ways I can get rid of the cords altogether (maybe battery operated lights?)
And the painting plus lights don’t compete with the botanical gallery wall that’s next to it. If you are ready to move away from farmhouse style, I wholeheartedly recommend the Sven sofas from Article.
