When DFS got in touch to see if I wanted to work with them on a theme based around the queen’s 90th birthday and her wonderful taste of bright block colours, how could I possibly say no? I love pastel colours and when this beauty turned up on my doorstep I really thought I would have to change address and runaway with the sofa. DFS sent me the three seater Opera sofa in pink which you can view here. Delivery was considerably hard as I live in a second floor apartment, but they managed to get it in (we measured before hand!) and after the delivery men leaving I was so excited to start styling it with items from my home and a couple of items I chose from Dwell!
The whole time we had this sofa I could not stop looking at it. Not only is it incredibly comfortable, but it feels spacious and pretty to look at. Being Pink, I thought the sofa would be hard to style but in retrospect it was easy. I’m not sure if it’s because it really suited the style of my living room, or just because it’s generally an easy sofa to style. I absolutely love copper at the moment and so we chose to style it with this beautiful copper table from Dwell. The good thing about having a side table is that, not only is it handy for your laptop or a cuppa, but it’s nice to style with a plant or side light.
I’m all for the minimal but colourful and clean look. I didn’t want to bombard the sofa with too much and so I styled it with the scatter cushions from DFS, this chevron throw from Dwell , the table (Also from Dwell) and a few little pops of greenery. I feel like plants make any area in a room pop. I wasn’t certain that green really goes with pink, but greenery definitely looks lovely with this sofa. It also went well with the rounded mirror from Ikea just above. As you can see from the last photo below, Daisy enjoyed it and was sad to see it go. Saying ‘bye bye sofa, see you soon’ when the delivery men came to pick it up. We loved how well this sofa went with our living room, it was easy to style and amazingly comfortable!
What do you think? Would you be able to style this into your living area?
