Colors to Suit a Red Sofa in an All-White Beach Cottage?

Colors to Suit a Red Sofa in an All-White Beach Cottage?

Q: Hi there. I'm seeking some decorating advice for my upcoming move. I've found a new rental that will accommodate a red couch in the living room. Here in the Caribbean our houses tend to have white walls and white tile floors. How can I make a cozy but beachy living room along with those and the red couch? 

I was thinking maybe letting everything else (curtains, pillows, rugs, etc) fall into a slate, grey, cream, light blue palette, all brightly coming together with the stark white walls, high ceilings, and floors. Does anyone have any style advice that will make my new small space flow and my beach cottage come together?

Any advice is appreciated!
