If you haven’t ever visited my other blog, Money Saving Sisters, and love home decor on a budget I encourage you to check it out! Each week, I re-create a designer room on a budget. A few weeks back I received an email from a reader with a decorating issue:
“I have a red couch that I just do not know how to style. I hate the yellow paint on our walls. I like the looks of pottery barn, restoration hardware and like the look of the modern farmhouse.”
As soon as I read this letter, I was excited, because I love red couches! The first couch I ever bought was a bright red couch, and I absolutely loved the pop of color it gave my living room.
I scoured the internet for an inspiration room and found this living room and knew that it was a great mix of modern farmhouse with a nice big red couch smack dab in the middle of the living room. My favorite part of this room is the white paint on the walls. Now I know most people would want to paint the walls, but when you have a red couch..you have plenty of color in the room! Some of my favorite soft white paint colors are: Lily of the Valley & China White by Benjamin Moore.
Here’s were some of the affordable pieces I found to complete the room.
1. Ikea Ektorp Sofa (Idemo Red) $499
2. Tufted Chair $269
3. Allen & Roth Bamboo Lamp $39.20

5. Blakely 3-Color Ikat – Brown Taupe (54×95″) $49.99
6. Better Homes & Gardens Rustic Coffee Table $105
