Robin’s Egg Blue and Red Room Inspiration

My television/ computer room has all left over red themed decor from my old apartment’s bedroom. Red is really difficult to decorate with because it involves a fine line between cool and country. Right now it feels too country and I’m so ready to spice it up with some cool, if that even makes sense. My goal this summer is to make it very contemporary with robin’s egg blue/ aqua blue  mixed with red accents.

This room is in desperate need of a cream and aqua blue rug, aqua blue and red pillows, aqua blue table cloth and blanket and red/blue artwork. I wish I could afford to do this all at once, but it will take some time! Here are my inspiration photos

    I’ve never used slipcovers before, but I would start with that on the sofa in a linen or off white color(don’t know if you have kids or pets). Since slipcovers can be washable, that’s were I’d start. On the large loose pillows, cover them with your fun fabrics, before buying new. Restuff or cover with batting if you want them firmer. I’d look for fabric at Good Will, Salvation Army or any other thirft store in your area. Start in the drapery section. Stick to your color palette, but go wild with prints/patterns. Have fun…I like to look at the Pottery Barn catalog for ideas and shop elsewere, if you get my drift. Do be careful that it doesn’t become too beachy looking
