Try this clever sofa colour tool
Sometimes it’s hard to picture how your gorgeous new sofa will pair up with the colour you’ve got on the walls. So, Dulux and DFS created this little online tool to give you some living room colour combinations to try. It lets you pair DFS sofas with Dulux paint shades in 4 on-trend combinations – Brights, Neutrals, Greens and Earthy. It makes finding your perfect living room palette so much easier, too – get living room colour ideas here.
Looking for a failsafe living room colour combination? Start in neutral
Most people choose a neutral colour for their living room walls. So, it makes sense to look at neutral-coloured sofas too. That way, you can create a living room colour scheme which feels tonally harmonious and well tied-together. This French Connection Marl grey DFS sofa, would work beautifully with a palette of warm reds, pinks and oranges. Or you could try a something like Dulux Soft Stone, which is a warm neutral with a soft pink side.
Or be bold with your living room colour scheme – just a pick a shade you love
There’s no rule that says you have to keep your sofa a neutral shade. Instead, you could start by asking, what’s my favourite colour? Then you could build your living room colour scheme around a coloured sofa. For example, here we chose a deep blue sofa and a dusky pink, Sicilian Summer 6, on the walls. The result is a living room that feels colourful yet sophisticated – and leaves you lots of room to play with interesting accessories.
