How to Decorate Ivory Couches
- 1). Add throw pillows in a variety of shapes, sizes and patterns on each end of the couch. If you're looking to add color, pick a color from the room's window treatments, rugs or upholstered furniture. Look for pillows with that color used in different patterns. A mixture of florals, stripes and solids is one way to dress up your ivory couch.
- 2). Place an heirloom quilt, cozy blanket or tailored duvet cover casually over the back or one arm of the couch. It not only adds color and interest to your couch, but you can change it out each season for an entirely new look. Choose a light quilt for summer nights or a thick chenille blanket to curl up under when temperatures drop in the winter. An ivory faux fur blanket looks stunning against an ivory couch.
- 3). Surround the couch with carefully chosen accent pieces. A classic coffee table supports the couch's place in the spotlight in a traditional living room, and a funky upholstered ottoman gives the couch a distinctly modern look. Either choice provides a handy spot for a newspaper or television remote. End tables anchor the couch and allow you to add lighting, books or framed photos to personalize the space. If your couch sits in the middle of a room, a console table placed against the couch's back is one way to add interest to the otherwise blank space. A floral centerpiece in the middle of the table gives you one more alternative to introduce color and texture.
