Double Parlor The Victorian House

Team Pink? Team Blue?

I know that I want a sofa for the new house, and I know that I want it to be colorful. The problem is that I haven’t decided which color for sure yet. (And let’s not even bring Kelly green into the equation.)

A blue kitchen will be visible from this room, so I do want to tie in that color. This is an inspiration-y mood board kind of thing to show you what I’ve been thinking of, so things will change a little. I mean, I’d love that light, but not $6759 worth of love. The couch will be our big ticket item.

Forget Boy vs. Girl. Pink, or Blue?

    I’d go in a slightly different direction. The blue sofa with the plum wall from the dining room. (Maybe a brighter shade, that is too dark.) Mostly blue accents, and just a punch of pink like the pink starburst pillow.

    I’m really feeling the love for plum & blue lately.

    Definitely the BLUE! I love the shape and the color, and so much more versatile.

    The blue is nice… But so many people do blue. I say go for pink. It is the bolder choice. And if you can rock it, then rock on. Not to mention that there are a ton of crazy cool blue rugs and pillows to tie the blue in.

    Oooh, nice finds. Each color would provide an entirely different look. I’m curious to see which you choose!

    Does this mean we might see a black wall in the new house? Eeeeeeeee!…?

      I’ve been thinking about it! Maybe not black, but an inky charcoal color.

        I just painted a wall a dark slate-y teal colour and I am totally in love with it!

    I am team blue, too. I love the beautiful range of pillows available in pinks, and they would be beautiful on a blue sofa. Just saw a blue leather Chesterfield in the Home Decorators Collection catalog that reminded me of you…. We are all so excited to see what you decide!

    Ooh, I just recently watched a rerun of Emily Hendersons show and she did a dark teal room with berry colored accents. It was Ah-mazing. I think it was called something like “California Cool”. This mood board has the same feel to it – totally loving the blue + pink when done right and I really like the color of that blue sofa!

    Hi! I picked out a similar rolled arm sofa in teal a few month ago and it’s now sitting pretty in our little studio. Great choice! We love our sofa and love the color even more, it brings life to the space.
