Red sofas make life a little...rosier, wouldn’t you say? Packed with joy, energy, and just a hint of flirtatiousness, red sofas breathe new life into any space – no matter how old or tired! Yet as fun as red can be, it can also pose some decorating dilemmas. If you know you want to style red into your space but are unsure exactly how to get there, dilemma no more! Check out our favorite color combos – and the best ways to incorporate them into your space – below!
Styling with a Red sofa
Red + White: If you love the punchy, revitalizing feelings that come with a red sofa, but just want a slightly toned down version of it, then go for the softening, classic combo that is red + white. Give your red sofa a white shag rug to help balance out the energy; for a warmer, feminine and overall cozier feel, make it off white – but just by a whisper!
Red + Grey: You can’t go wrong with neutral, unbiased, unassuming grey, even when its counterpart is a color as bold as red! The darker the grey you use, the more contrast you’ll bring to the table – and the bolder, punchier, more energized the red will feel.
Red + Red: Red throw pillows on a red sofa? How’s that for bold style? To add a bit of intrigue to an all-red aesthetic – and prevent the pillows from getting lost in a ‘red abyss’ –, opt for ones with tassels, stitching or other small, textured detail.
