Can This Obnoxious Couch Work?

Good Questions

Pin it button big
Q: I love this (admittedly ugly) couch for reasons I don't even understand (and not just because we bought it for $7.50)! I'm moving into a new place and am starting with a blank slate. The living room has lighter colored hardwood floors, and I can paint any color that I want. How do I make this couch work? Is there a way to balance it out with the colors of the room? I desperately want to use it, but can't figure out how!
