home decorating


Question by  DRobert (2)

How should I decorate a room that has a blue-and-white striped couch?

I don't want to re-upholster the couch.

Beach Themed room? You could try a sand color carpet, maybe some sea-shells. Or if you don't like that, you could get pillows with the same color blue as the couch. Everyone has different tastes. If you need help, try asking friends what they think you should do! Good Luck!

This depends on the style of the couch and the pattern. Some blue-and-white striped couches would fit a beach-style theme, whereas others would be more fitting of a traditionally styled room. Accents in the room such as furniture should be white or wood tones rather than black, but a room with blue, white and an exciting accent color could work.

You can keep the couch as it is and go for a marine / beach life feel. Sandy and bleached-out colors, sea-related accessories like cushions, lime waxed furniture. The 'white' in your couch is probably a cream: match that for some walls and a table or cabinet. Maybe find a floor or carpet in a sandy white too.
