      Maybe this will help you. Its a hard question to help with without seeing a picture and everyone has there own sense of decorating. www.how.com/info_12130704_curtains-hang-red-sofa.html

    A golden color goes great with red.

    I would do dropcloth curtains. You can bleach them and then tape them off to put stripes of some sort - gold, red, black - I guess it depends on the other colors in the room. :)

    I agree with Terry, I love the idea of gold to accent the red

    But, I wouldn't go much louder than gold because red is such a statement color, you can also do well with neutrals to highlight the red

    • Funny, I think the same thing when there are multiple windows facing the same direction on the house.

    My couch is burgundy, and I though burgundy was too dark (and overkill). I really wanted something more neutral but not white or beige. I finally decided on a light silver gray. That was 4 years ago, and I have never been disappointed. It took me a while to find just the right shade (steel gray is just too cold looking). I found a beautiful light silver with tiny threads of several colors running through it. They are not noticeable unless you look up close, but boy how pretty they are.

    Wall color
    • Maria Peters Maria Peters on Feb 19, 2017
      Hi Pat. The walls are a off white. The landlord said I can only paint a gray or a very light yellow. Not much to go by-- right

    I see lots of people are suggesting cream or ivory I agree, if your chair is as you describe then a neutral colour would be better as any pattern could make your room too fussy. You could alternate red and cream cushions to match on the couch this would tie it all together. Good luck
