How to Accessorize a Sofa

How To: Give Your Sofa a Winter-Friendly Makeover

Image

Tired sofas — we've all had them. Before you give up on the one you've been glaring at all year, try taking a stab at re-styling it with Winter-friendly layers — lots of them. We'll show you how!

  • Start by tucking a folded quilt into the center sofa cushions to provide subtle pattern and texture. To avoid an overly crafts-y look, shop for block-printed options, which feel particularly fresh.
  • Faux-fur pillows provide softness and warmth and are great for curling up with. For something slightly more unexpected, try mixing two different colors of fur. As long as they coordinate with the rest of your accessories, the result will look cohesive.
  • For a pop of color and a touch of whimsy, throw a pom-pom throw over the arm of your sofa.
  • Finish the look by adding a plush shag or flokati rug to accompany the touchable fabrics. A graphic version can still work well with a patterned quilt as long as the color palettes match. This crisscross fleece version is an especially good buy!
