Decorating Large Brown Couch in a Small Living Room Apartment
The key to decorating small spaces is to deceive the eye into thinking the room is larger than the square footage would suggest. Light colors usually accomplish this better than dark hues, which can make a room feel smaller and closed in. But a large brown couch doesn’t automatically mean you’re already-small apartment will seem tiny. Use lighter colors to decorate the rest of the room — the focal point will remain the large couch, but you’ll open up the rest of the space. Avoid placing other dark and solid furniture near the couch. Instead, opt for light pieces. Vibrant light blues, greens and yellows, or cream all complement brown and provide a color pop for upholstered chairs or ottomans. Don’t be afraid of patterned upholstery. Funky flowers or subtle stripes will offset the solidness of the couch.
