When decorating your living room, you’ll want to think about big and small details. For example, you will need to consider what type of coffee table will suit the space and what kind of storage you may need. You’ll also want to keep in mind what art might end up on the walls and whether you need a rug. Of course, you may also need to choose a new couch.
According to Forbes, you’ll want to consider every aspect of a couch—one of the key pieces in a living room—before you buy it, because it can be expensive. In addition, it will probably be a piece of furniture that you will have to live with for years. Therefore, along with ensuring that it will meet your needs, you’ll also want to like how it looks.
When it comes to choosing a couch style, Kathy Norton, an interior design expert and Evine host, told Forbes that parents and pet owners may want to opt for patterns that can hide stains and hair left behind by children or pets. She also explained that neutral solids are always better if you’re single or have empty nesters. By getting a neutral-colored sofa, you can often change the style with colorful throw pillows and blankets. With that in mind, check out the following beautiful couches that will add a lively touch to your living room.
1. Fire truck red sofa
There’s a reason fire engines are a fiery shade of red. It is a color that will grab your attention and is one that is hard to ignore. That’s also why fire truck red is a great choice for a bold couch. It will undoubtedly provide a powerful pop of color to any room.
2. Bright blue couch
If you want a couch that stands out in your living room, but also gives the space a bright splash of color, then you might adore this shade of blue. While it may be on the lighter side of the spectrum, it’s also a vivid version of the color that makes it more than a little bold.
3. Forest green sofa
Take a cue from nature and choose a forest green couch for your living room. The shade will not only provide your space with a lively touch of color, but it is also a calm tone at the same time. Dress it up by pairing it with luxurious decor or keep it cool with accents in natural materials.
4. Rusty red couch
Bring a striking touch to your home with a rusty red couch. A shade that works with many styles will suit everything from a space with a comfortable country look to a contemporary industrial home. That’s not to mention a living room that opts for chic details, antique accents, or a combination of both.
5. Sunny yellow sofa
If a sunny summer day makes you smile, a bright yellow couch in your living room can do the same thing. A seemingly bold choice, it can be paired with equally bright pieces or surrounded by less vibrant decor so that your couch is the room’s main focal point.
6. Light pink couch
Whether you like your home to have a dollhouse feel or want to add a touch of soft elegance to your space, pink is a great option when it comes to a living room sofa. While there are several shades to consider, a light pink couch can provide a stylish touch that can be timeless.
7. Deep orange couch
Orange is not a color just meant for Halloween. This couch proves it with its beautiful deep orange shade.

8. Soft green couch
Choosing a couch that adds a vibrant, colorful color to your living room doesn’t necessarily mean you have to choose something that’s overwhelmingly bright.

9. Violet velvet couch

Taking full advantage of the cheery color, yet taking it down a notch or two, a smoky yellow couch will brighten up your living room without overpowering the rest of your decor.
11. Rose brown couch

14. Lime green couch
As nice to look at as it sounds, a lime green couch can give your living room fresh and wonderful life. While you can choose a lime green piece that is on the brighter side, you can also choose one that is slightly more rounded but will work just as well in a vibrant space.

17. Lilac couch
This lilac couch is so lovely that you might not be able to resist its lingering charm. While this is a color that would go with a sofa with a lovely design and could be placed in a living room that is just as cute, it is also a shade that you can use for something more contemporary and chic.
