Pink Upholstery -- Would You?

10.26.2012


I would.  And I think I will.  I have all the doors closed to our living room because it just drives me crazy.  Since we've lived in this house (almost five years) I haven't done anything with that room.  It will be expensive, and I've lacked the confidence to tackle a more formal room.  I'm thinking a bit of pink upholstery may be the way to go there.  Maybe just a sofa.

This is the rug I have in the living room.  Do you think pink upholstery would work well?  Would you ever consider pink upholstery?

That is a wonderful rug and I absolutely would use pink in there. If it were my house I would also balance it with a few masculine pieces, maybe a leather chair and a bit of dark wood.

Love the rug! Yes, a pink sofa would look great. What a great Statement Piece it will be. (My husband might divorce me over a pink sofa--or pink anything for that matter.) Go for it!

Look at your smoooie poooie doggie. What a yummm. I would love to do this, but I could not take the comments my family would have over it. I understand about the "door closed". Great rug.

A Pink Sofa on that Rug would be STUNNING! And you can do it!! It perfectly fits with your home and the design you already have going on!! xo

I love you, but I couldn't. YOU certainly should, though and it would look great on that rug. Love your sweet pooch. Have a great weekend.

The hot pink velvet couch is gorgeous!
So I would definitely put one in my living room!
I love pink!

I have a pink (cranberry if we're talking around my husband) sofa in our formal living room. On Monday it is going out to be re-upholstered but only because the couch and the fabric have been discontinued and I am having a sofa made to match so I can have facing sofas. And I've got a lot of pink going on in my house now that we moved from the house where I intially used it. But, YES...I'd totally do it and it will look great with your rug. Your house looks beautiful from all of the glimpses you have shared!

Yes! I have a pinkish sofa in the family room and i love it! It would look stunning against your beautiful rug.

Lock your doors tonight because I'm coming to steal that rug of yours.

And I would do a pink sofa in a heartbeat. Correction: a hummingbird's heartbeat.

Yes. I recovered a chaise lounge in pink and I love it. It's in the guest room for my non-existent grandaughter! There's even a chandelier with pink drops. Fortunately, those stinky little boys will still sleep in there.

Oh yes, in fact the salmon pink in the first imahe in a different sofa would be amazing!

Yes and Yes. I inherited two wing chairs and a sofa in shades of pink. Have loved them for decades!

Mmm. THanks for these photos because I would and I think I will, too. The pink sofa. In pink wool flannel. And yes, it'd look scrumptious on your rug.

YES! That rug is screaming for a pink velvet. Duralee Rose would rock!

That rug is beautiful. Yes! to a pink sofa. I'm searching for the perfect bold magenta for an accent chair in my living room.
