So rainbows are somewhat rare and beautiful, a happening, an event in the sky, and they always put a smile on my face. What else puts a smile on my face? Well sofas of course, so I was thinking what could be happier than a rainbow coloured collection of sofas? Let us do away with neutrals and embrace some bright, flamboyant statement sofas!
While my favourites will forever remain in the turquoise, blue and green pallettes, I can appreciate any hue especially when shown as delicious candy pops of colour. The lemon one pictured below is cheerful and would be a lovely addition to a home in our northern climate where the winter can stretch on and on. This sofa would make even the greyest days bearable and perhaps even great.
While I do love neutrals (sand hues are my favourite right now) and they really can be dressed up any which way you like with bolder pillows, but there is something so dramatic about a sofa with punch. It may not be a choice for everyone, but i think if you absolutely love a certain colour than you will love that colour on a sofa for the duration of its life.
I can’t say I remember all that lead up to the moment when I witnessed my favourite rainbow of all time, but I would like to think it was one of those sun showery kind of days that glisten with reflection and light refractions and swing between sun and gloom. I was little, at an amusement park with my grandparents, and we happened to be on a train. When we came around the bend, there it was, stretching in a perfect arc across the sky. That rainbow, burnished in my mind to this day.
What can I say about turquoise that I haven’t already said? I just love it, plain and simple as that. But navy, well I have a bit of a thing for navy too, and it’s not for everyone, but look at the bright bold blue on this tufted little masterpiece pictured below. Sigh. SO pretty!!!
Are you bold enough to bring in one of these rainbow hued sofas into your living space? If so, which shade would be your choice? I think we all know what mine would be, but wait! I have already introduced a turquoise chair into my home. I guess you could say I love a little drama…
