I keep seeing pink sofas everywhere and I love them!!! Inspired by Jules’ sofa on Cougar Town, I did a little searching of my own to see what I could find and oh my! So pretty. The thin arms and the extra wide double cushions in the sofa pictured above are perfect, not that girly either. Well, maybe a little girly. So my question is, can a pink sofa be used in a space without becoming super girly?
The square tufted cushions on this sofa give it a masculine edge especially paired with the edgy black painting and other dark accents. You could really play this masculinity up I think, if you needed to justify a rather large and important sofa purchase if say, for instance, you bought one on impulse while shopping without your husband.
I have developed a love for curved back sofas. The elegant shape is very appealing. Coupled with tufting. Sigh. Let’s talk about pink for just a second. It adds warmth and depth and a touch of feminity to a room and doesn’t necessarily overwhelm to the point that it need be tucked away into the princess’s chamber. Right? Come on guys are you with me?
Pink leather!!! Seriously. Wow. In tabacco shades of brown this sofa would be uber masculine, fit for a smoky den, but in this shade anything is possible!!
Contrast piping in this room ties the accents together. Black and pink is so Chanel. Love it.You could also flip it and add pink piping to a neutral sofa.
Lighting gives this beauty a warm soft glow. While you may not commit to an entire sofa in pink I think an accent chair would be a perfect way to experiment with delicious shades of petal, watermelon, blush, salmon, fuchsia, grapefruit and rose.
Everything about this room is lovely. The black and white photos above the sofa are such a cute idea. You could also balance this shade of petal pink with geometric pillows in more masculine tones and textures. So I think the answer is yes. Yes, you can bring a PINK sofa into a room without rendering it girly. Really. Try it and send me a pic!
