November 22, 2012 in Design Dilemma
just bought a graphite color sofa for my family room, love this calm color, but really stuck when i tried to pick up some cushions for it.
can anyone give me some idea about the cushion color or pattern to bright up/ match this sofa??
thanks in advance

go here and scroll through. there are amazing prints. anything works with grey. find the pillow forms and density you like before making a purchase. I love to buy covers so I can change my look within 5 minutes! they make all styles and fabrics. If you sew at all, you can make your own pillows and /or covers.

ides are here: http://www.houzz.com/photos/accessories-and-decor/pillows

Enjoy the process. It's so rewarding to find something that speaks to you.

Gray is such a neutral color you could use almost any color to coordinate. Teal (or peacock) blue, turquiose and navy are great. Or try one of these textured pillows: [houzz=

What colour are your walls, other existing furniture, floors. You could go for interest in texture as opposed to a colour.

I would agree with greenthumb2 that anything works with gray except not everything does I would not go very dark with your cushions because you will lose the beauty of the sofa. Not knowing anything about your space or design style I would say go for a light pastel color such as yellow or aqua( not exactly a pastel but I think you get the point). I love you sofa choice by the way I was considering it for one of the rooms in my house!

anything gray with a graphic pattern, IMO. or most colors, really,
[houzz=Keyes Decorative Pillow, Charcoal/White]

[houzz=Charcoal City Maze Pillow]

if you go with gray, try to get the hue (color, yes gray has color) to be the same, but tonality can be lighter or darker)

[houzz=Dream Scene Fabric by Robert Allen]

[houzz=Origami ScandiStem Applique Recycled Felt Cushion]
