By now, you’ve seen that we made a somewhat drastic decor change in our living room, swapping out our dark grey microfibre couch for a slipcovered white three-seater from Ikea. You can read all the details and see pictures of our newly decorated living room here. I know white couches and furnishings can be controversial, so in the interest of keeping things interesting, I thought I’d round-up 13 Dreamy Spaces with White Sofas that Inspire… 🙂 Yes, dreamy… and yes, a few will even surprise you!
Just want a little bit of something? How about a love seat in a den or sunroom, as is the case with this feminine softy from The DIY Mommy? I love love the florals mixed with the soft cream fabric and the tufting, don’t you?
Want something a little more urban? This white-grey couch in Sabrina’s living room is just the ticket! Though we live in a coastal style house, I also truly love urban design. See all the details over on Little Pink Notebook.
Also in the modern and clean category, this sweet little office nook by Dwell Beautiful! And that gallery wall! Yumm.
Also in the category of so simple, it’s basically perfect, this white couch dressed with a basket and crate accent wall. Find all the details over at Kreativk.
Yes. I have a blog crush on … this entire living room. Liz Marie Blog makes me want to brew a pot of tea and have a good girlfriend gab.
This room doesn’t look that much different from ours in terms of lay-out. I love the way the white furniture creates visual lightness and brightness and off-sets the wood tones used through the space. Courtesy of the hilarious and talented Bre at Rooms for Rent.
Who loves a good slip cover? Yes please. This off-white linen lovely was once a generic grey microfibre couch with attached cushions. In this review and tutorial on Love Grows Wild, Liz shows how she totally transformed her space with fabric!
Proving that a white couch doesn’t mean no colour or personality, Heather from The Heathered Nest knocks it out of the park with this one! The chaise sectional! The coloured floral graphic drapes! The wood beams!
This room had me at white couch, pink accents and polka dots. I really don’t feel like I need to say more, but I will. This design proves that white can be the anchor to an incredibly sophisticated and grown-up room! More details at 11 Magnolia Lane.
As Liz Lemon would say “I want to go to there”, Susan from Love at Home uses a white couch and two armless white chairs to flank a stair well and create a warm and inviting space. I feel like designing around an open staircase is a design challenge every time – white couches here help to minimize the visual clutter for sure.
In all my days as a news broadcaster, my mantra was “tell the truth and never be boring” and that saying seems to be perfectly encapsulated in this AWESOME living room tour over at Dimples & Tangles. For real. No one can ever say a white couch is boring after seeing the amazing texture and pattern in this space!
Aimez-vous le decor Francais? If so, then this space by Edith & Evelyn Vintage is sure to please. You seriously have to see the before to really appreciate all that has been done with the addition of the bleached out fabrics, touches of gold and don’t even get me started on that leather studded coffee table!
Can we keep doing the French thing, please? I mean, it is my second language. AND THIS recovered Provencale style settee makes my heart skip a beat. Shabby Fufu je t’aime.
Bon journee! Until next time 🙂 Thanks for reading…
