Red Color In Home Decorating

Recognized as a stimulant, red is inherently exciting and the amount of red is directly related to the level of energy perceived. Use red to grab attention and to get people to take action! Red draws attention and a keen use of red as an accent can immediately focus attention on a particular element. There are various shades of the color red: scarlet, crimson, vermillion, carmine, maroon, burgundy, ruby, rose, madder, rouge, brick, blood red, blush, fire engine red, cinnabar, russet, rust, Venetian red, flame, Indian red, tomato.

Red is a powerful color, perfect for the dining room, and making a huge comeback for living rooms as bold accents of red make a very assertive statement of style.

Red is the color of passion, but if you’re too passionate about the color you may be seeing red (literally) in your home. “Red can go everywhere from cheery and happy to angry and aggressive,” says designer Don Raney. “That’s what you’ve got to keep in mind when using red in a room. When is too much too much and when is it not enough.”


The color red mixes well with almost any color scheme, but how do you decorate with red? Try to use red in everything – from lighting and candles to pillows and walls… There are few ideas:
