If your living room features a dark blue sofa, make the most of the decorative item by enhancing it with pillows and throw blankets. When your living room decor scheme is in need of a pick-me-up, update the look quickly with colourful textiles. Decorate the sofa according to the blue shade it features. For instance, midnight blue has a mysterious, romantic quality, while classic navy blue can be used to create a fresh nautical theme.

  1. 1

    Place a plain-coloured decorative pillow in each corner of the couch. Choose dark blue square pillows to match the sofa, or neutral tan or white pillows to set the decor tone.

  2. 2

    Line the back of the couch with square, patterned decorative pillows. Pick designs such as turquoise seashells, green leaves, indigo flowers or blue birds to reflect the overall living room theme. Choose cotton pillows for a casual look or silk pillows featuring gold thread details for an opulent style.

  3. 3

    Accent the large square pillows with small, eye-catching versions. Place two circular or oblong pillows featuring vintage buttons or hand-sewn embroidery details in front of the square pillows. Pick mini pillows that complement the designs and colours of their larger counterparts.

  4. 4

    Place a throw blanket over the top of the sofa to add warmth and interest. Fold a large blanket in half prior to displaying it across the top of the couch. Hang the blanket over a sofa arm as an alternative. Choose a throw colour and material, such as cotton or cashmere, which coordinates with the decorative pillows.
