Sofa Layering 101

In my opinion, it's time to start thinking about layering up your sofa like "making your bed." Don't skip out on all the extras or else your living room, the space where you spend most of your time, will be feeling a little lackluster. Inspiration please...

Here are three fail-safe rules to follow when layering your very own sofa.

#1 : {Texture and Pattern are just as important as Color}

Texture adds coziness and pattern adds depth. Mix 'em up with abandon.

#2 : {Consider a color scheme...and then throw in one element that is completely opposite of it}

I know, this probably seems extremely counter-intuitive, but I feel it's critical to keeping things interesting. If your room is all about cool blues, mix in a warm yellow-orange. If you love emerald green, mix in a reddish-orange, etc. Just a touch is ok, but make it meaningful.

#3 : {Symmetry is a yawn}

The old rule of two matching pillows and calling it a day is OVER my friends. Single pillows of different styles are so much more interesting; tuck in a blanket or your favorite vintage textile and a sheepskin for coziness and you're golden. Singles are also less expensive and less of a commitment...go for it! 

Still in need of inspiration...a few looks to consider...
