1. Grey sofa styling tips : good colour to combine with other colours
Although we have a white sofa now in Our Cairo Home I still believe grey is one of the best colours for a sofa. For mine I choose the Sydney 96. It’s easy to blend in with other colours and suitable in every interior style. Below you see some examples of how to combine the grey sofa. Started with the pastel tones, the soft blue and pinks easily blend in with the grey. Together it gives a balanced and cozy look.
If you’re looking for more contrast you can choose more darker colours such as dark blue. Combine this with other greyish colours and a touch of copper / brass and you have a Vintage style. Looking for more colourful look? Create a colourpalette consisting of 2 basic colours and 3 accentcolours. They grey colour is one of the 2 basic colours. And then add a mix of cushions and plaids on the sofa consisting these colours. Like what I did with my sofa.
I guess I was right with this first tip? The grey colour is so easy to combine with other colours!
2. Easy to fit in every living room
With it’s 256cm width this Edge sofa is big enough to enjoy some relaxed nights with the family. Or when you’re having a Netflix evening alone it’s very comfortable too. What I noticed is that the sofa easily fits in every interior. What I mean with that? Well the living room of my previous home was kind of big and long. I decided to put the sofa in the middle of the living room instead of with the back against the wall. In this way I create a seperate living room area but it still connects with the rest of the room. The sofa ‘breaks’ the room in two what makes the sofa fit in easy in this bigger space.
But also in a more narrow room it fits. Remember that amazing interiorproject in Haarlem? This is a 30’s house and they are know about their narrow livingrooms. So here we decided ofcourse to put the sofa against the wall, but because of it’s bright grey colour and easy shape it still fits in perfectly. And also here I combined a mix of cushions on the sofa. Not the same colour palette as my home. For this client I choose for more focus on mint and neutral tones. What do you think?
3. Comfort and easy to clean
I wrote here before that I always look at the ‘looks’ first before I consider the quality. Well actually this Edge sofa has a good quality/looks ánd price balance. When you buy a sofa there are different things probably goes through your mind. How does the sofa sit? And what about the comfort? What kind of fabric will I choose for the sofa? The measurments, will it fit in the living room? All these questions can easy be answered by the one who helps you to actually buy the sofa.
I can say that this grey fabric ( Sydney 96) is still a very good choice. Why? Because it’s easy to clean. You can buy some extra protection spray to protect your sofa against spots. That’s already a big plus. But also the colour makes sure you don’t see the actual spots if they will be there for some reason. And beside that the sit comfort is great. For me it’s always ‘dangerous’ to sit on this sofa because I know I will not leave this spot for at least a few hours. And that makes this sofa perfect for our home!
Ps.If you rent out your house or you know any nice house for rent between Amsterdam & The Hague, let us know :)
