In a galaxy far, far away, before I had children and cats, I used to have a white sofa and I followed a blue/turquoise and white colour scheme. Now I can but smile at the uncomfortable lifestyle of people with white sofas – they clearly don’t sit on them much! Although each of the rooms below has something that appeals to me, for once I will focus on their flaws (sour grapes, anyone?).

Safe to say I’ll never be a white sofa household 😀 Apart from the last one, none of these look very cosy and relaxing, do they? The views are spectacular though!
Any of the interiors and views would do (although I agree the last one is very stunning). But no – never white sofas. If you’ve ever had kids or pets or red wine or spaghetti sauce in your house, it would be madness….
We have a cream sofa, persuaded by our friendly upholsterer, who recovered the original print for us, that treated with the right proofing it would withstand all sorts of stains. Over twelve years and two cats later, not too mention chocolate, coffee and wine spillages, I can tell you he was right. Not at stain in sight!
We had cream sofas once, but they were leather. We also had several children, so needed to wash the sofas every week!
I was about to change our disintegrating black faux leather sofa… but then our dear old Barney starting peeing on it (cat, not son, I hasten to clarify). So… it will have to wait for a bit longer.
No white sofas for me! Mine is red, which I find to be a very forgiving colour. The last one looks lovely, though!
Some of these do look gorgeous, Marina Sofia. But there is no way a white sofa would survive in my home. Not with my two canine overlords! I love the room from iping, though. That view is die for!
I certainly prefer the views to the sofas – although I like the concept of white sofas more than the practicality of it.
A white sofa. Possibly the only thing under heaven that I swear that I will never do.
Ha ha ha! I managed to only have one chocolate smear on it back in the days when I had one!
I see weddings. I see entryhalls to sci fi afterlife novels…. no no not for me.
Yes, it does rather remind me of all those things…
The trick with white sofas, even off-white, is to eschew children and pets — though that’s not an option for many! We have two sets of covers, so one can be washed while the other is in use. Alternatively … invest in some tough sofa throws.
I can cope with white walls and white flowers – but definitely not white sofas! Amazing views though,
Gorgeous pictures, as always. It feels like you’d need sunglasses to live in the third house.
We have a leather white sofa and reading armchairs and everything’s fine. 🙂
Beautiful but… no… no, no, no… no, no! Not for me. A white sofa in my house would become a mottled, spotted sofa in NO time at all.
Absolutely not! Although with two mostly white cats, my sofas often end up looking white…
What’s with everyone? White sofas are gorgeous 🙂
