When it comes to colorful decorating tips, few celebrities provide as much inspiration as Mindy Kaling, who frequently shares behind-the-scenes glimpses into her Los Angeles home on her Instagram page. The “Office” alum is a huge fan of bold colors and prints (remember her pink and blue drenched office?), and based on her latest Instagram post, she’s all about the biggest sofa trend of recent times, showing off a rich green velvet couch.

Kaling shared a series of glam photos enjoying what appears to be a delicious burger, paying homage to her “Office” character, Kelly Kapoor, in the caption. “‘I’m one of the few people who look really good eating a burger.’ —Kelly Kapoor, probably,” wrote the actress and producer in the caption.

In the shots, she’s perched on what appears to be a bluish green velvet sofa. No word on whether or not the sofa lives in her home or if she’s enjoying a meal at a friend’s house or hotel, but it’s clear that stylish green sofas are here to stay.

Kaling is a noted longtime fan of bold couches — from her luxurious draped tufted sofa to her chic red piped trim couches and her modern warm gold sofa, it’s clear the mom of two makes serious business out of sitting pretty in every room of her house.

Though there are no details as to where the lush velvet couch she’s enjoying is from, Burrow’s Nomad Velvet Sofa in jade ($1,595) provides a similarly rich tone as the one pictured on her Instagram and would undoubtedly also be a Kelly Kapoor-approved purchase.
