I just got a new slipcover for my couch and would like your opinion. Do you think I should keep the original denim slipcover or the new red one? I bought the red one because it's two pieces and it doesn't move around and get our of shape like the other one. Please be honest. I just can't make up my mind. Thanks for your help.

DEFINITELY the red! I love it! (And, honestly, I'm not a fan of denim as home decor.)

The red!

Where have you found good slip covers? I have had a hard time finding a good fit for our couch.

LOVE the red. I'm also not a big fan of denim though, and love red anyway. I think it looks awsome! And please share-Where'd you get it? How much? I'm starting to work on actually decorating our house and I really like them

I just bought them at Target today. They have them online, however they are out of stock. So, I had to travel to a neighboring city to get them. The couch was 99.99 and the loveseat was 79.99. I had my kids jump on it (which they sure didn't mind doing) to see if the slipcover would move and it stayed in place.

P.S. It's called Twill 2-piece slipcover in Marsala Red. When you get online get gives you the option to see if it's available in your store.

I like the red with your rug! The denim looked fine to me, but I like the red better.

Red! It makes such a difference, it really brings out the warmth in your paint color.

I love both. I wouldn't be able to commit to one or the other - I'd change them like bedsheets - wash one, use the other for a couple weeks, then switch back. The room looks soooo peaceful w/ the blue, and so vibrant with the red!

I'll go against the grain and say BLUE! I think it gives the room a much calmer feel and goes better with the framed pics above.

Well, I really love the blue. When I first saw your house pics on the other thread, it made me want blue.

I don't hate the red, though.

I like the look of the blue better, but if the red stays in place better that would decide it for me. Or I might try to find some way to really anchor the blue ones down . . .

Personally I like the calmer feel of the blue denim but the red looks great as well. BTW, we have the same exact coffee table!

Wow, I really like both.
The denim blue has a more warm family feel.
The red one has a more upscale feel, like the prior poster said it looks like you could sit down with your wine and light some candles!

I would keep both and switch different seasons etc.

definitely the red.

The blue IF your frames were maple or bleached pine hung from silver rods instead of black, your walls were more buttery, your rug had blue/grey/green/yellows.

Go with red.
I think the red, being a warm color, makes the room look cozier--better for relaxing and hanging out.

Do you put baskets under your coffee table? I was thinking of doing that if I could keep the kids out from under it.

Definitely the RED! My first thoughts when opening the blue photo was "nice, but a little boring", then when I opened the red photo it just seems to really make the whole room 'pop'. It makes the walls seem warmer and brings out the color in your rug.

I have a red sofa and I absolutely love it! I was a little worried about it being bright at first, but is actually my favorite place in my whole house because it is warm and cozy. We get lots of compliments about it. I have a light haired dog (a pug) that gets lots of fur stuck the red corderoy which does really annoy me though!

If you have the space to store the extra slipcovers, I'd definitely hang onto both- you can change them as your mood changes, and you can put a clean one on if one gets soiled, you can put a fresh slipcover on while getting the other one cleaned for just routine cleaning, and not worry about the sofa underneath getting dirty, etc.

If you're just going to keep one set I'd go with the blue. It's more calm and peaceful and I personally like it better.
