Neutral Colors Rock! By Stephanie Platt, Interior Designer and Staging Assistant with A Goode Start My husband and I recently purchased new living room furniture. I have always had a hand-me-down couch, something that went perfectly with someone else’s style. This was a big purchase for me and one I took very seriously. I drug my husband to the furniture store on a Saturday morning where we proceeded to sit on what seemed like a never ending array of couches. I fell head over heels in love with this trendy couch in a soft teal. It was comfortable and gorgeous. I was ready to redo my entire living room in order for this couch to fit. And that is when my husband burst my bubble. He wanted something that worked with the aesthetic that we already had and I had to agree. In the end we went with a nice neutral soft brown couch with clean sophisticated lines. When making big furniture purchases it is best to go with something neutral that will outlast the latest trends.
