One of the trends I'm absolutely loving this Spring is the use of muted pastel colours in home decor. I'm seeing a lot of blush pinks, seafoam greens and periwinkle blues in both furniture and accessories and it's so pretty and fresh. I've even seen blush pink coloured walls and they're just so gorgeous! If you want to go for a fun change this Spring in your home's decor, why not try a sofa in a statement colour like seafoam green? Today I want to show you how surprisingly versatile a pastel coloured couch can be and a few ways to style it.
I got to play with this particular sofa in my home the other day - it's the Vita 100% genuine leather sofa from the Cindy Crawford collection at The Brick. Isn't the colour SO pretty? I'm always a huge sucker for anything in the turquoise, aqua, seafoam, or teal range.
What makes this particular sofa so versatile in almost any room is the fact that its seafoam green colour is nice and muted. It has a good dose of grey in it so it's a more sophisticated colour that blends well with lots of other colours in a room.
I also really like that this sofa is genuine leather - our own sofas are leather and I always recommend leather couches for family living rooms! They're so easy to clean and they last a long time. The price point of the Vita sofa is also a great deal for a leather piece! I also find the lines of this couch very classic with a trendy twist - it's a style that would go well in a lot of different rooms. (You can find this sofa in a couple of other colours too if this one's not for you.)
By the way: the entire Cindy Crawford Home Collection is available for 70% off the ticket price when you buy the matching loveseat or chair! Click here to browse this deal.
Here, I've styled this sofa with my DIY floral throw pillows and lots of cream accents. I love how the pinks in the pillows look with the grey-green in the sofa. It's a really feminine, Springy look!

That sofa is a really beautiful color. I really like mixing furniture styles so I'd love to see tips on taking store bought basic pieces from different collections for an eclectic/collected look without actually doing thrift/second hand shopping,

I love this couch and even though it is not technically a neutral the color is so subtle it can work with many colors.
Oh that sofa is beautiful!! I could just imagine the different ways to 'decorate' it though the seasons too, it just goes with everything doesn't it? How fun!!
Can you link the post for that oversized abstract painting please? I love it!!!
Certainly! It's http://thediymommy.com/make-modern-artwork-from-thrift-store-canvas-art/
I bought the same sofa but we will only have it delivered in July when our home is built... on the video it looks more light blue than green. I thought it was more minty green... what do you think.. more blue or grwen?!
