Budget Rooms: Colorful Living Room with Sectional
Well, you asked for it (even I asked for it) and here you go – budget sectional living room. Let me go ahead and grandstand about sectionals for a bit. I love them. If you want a really formal room, then maybe they aren’t for you, but if you are secretly wanting a sectional but worried it isn’t cool, I’m here to tell you to go for it. I think because the 70’s are so back and comfort is playing such a bigger part of design these days (at least it is for me) that if/when we can use a sectional, we do.
Mel pulled together these boards for a modern colorful living room design to show you how you sectional lovers can design a room on a budget.

I have that rug as a runner, by the way, and it’s awesome. The color is the perfect amount of “bright” (aka not too bright but happy enough to still feel like a real color). We felt that she could go lower on the rug, chair, sectional – well most of them. Sure, a living room for under $5k is absolutely on the budget side, but how low can we go?

$2500. That is pretty darn good for a living room. I will note that the rug looks big but it’s 6 1/2 x 8 in reality, so we put two of them side by side to make it twice the size. We have done this a few times before (like in this room) and it can work depending on the rug and the room. It is a great way to stretch a budget or if the rug you love doesn’t quite come large enough in the size you need. I secretly like this sectional more than the first one, though, and I even like this woven pouf more than the more expensive one.
Listen, it’s not quite as good, but man it’s under $1500 for a full living room and that is very, very budget friendly. Most of this I haven’t seen in person (except that first rug and the leather chair) so I can’t 100% vouch for it, but I think that #2 is a very great budget-friendly living room with a sectional.
