An Ode To Red

Red Interior Design, Red Accent Color

There are some interior design rends that will simply never go out of fashion, and the bold classic red shade is one of them. A striking pop of red will add character and intrigue to any room. This color is vibrant, glamorous, and exciting, and no one can deny that there is something energizing about walking into a room that is decorated in red. With that being said, let’s take a look at eight ways you can add the iconic ‘red lipstick’ shade into your home.

1. Rugs
A red rug is the easiest way to incorporate this color into your room. From shaggy red rugs to more understated styles, the options are endless.

2. Chairs
Make a statement with a plush red chair. A standalone red chair can add a bold touch to your living room, bedroom, or office space. In fact, there is a growing trend for adding plush and luxurious chairs to larger bathrooms, and so this is something you may want to consider.

3. Accent wall
If you really want to transform the appearance of a room, you could get the paintbrush out and paint one of the walls red. Finish off the look with some striking wall art. Spider macro photography is a good place to start. Photos like this have a real modern feel, which works really well with red.

4. Lamps
Upgrading the light source in your room is a great way to rejuvenate the space and create a relaxing atmosphere. With red, the options are endless; you could even add a cultural touch such as Chinese lanterns.

5. Throws
If you can’t quite afford a new sofa or chair just yet, a red throw is the next best solution. You can add the classic bold shade to your living room without breaking the bank. It will also provide some softness and plushness, which any home can benefit from.

6. Tables
We have a tendency to play it safe when it comes to tables, so why not break the mould and go for one in the classic red shade instead? This will become the statement piece in any room, easily transforming the entire feel.

7. Picture frame
Draw attention to some of your favourite memories with a bold red picture frame. Not only does this give you an easy way of incorporating red into your home, but you can add a personal touch as well.

8. Artwork
The sky is the limit when it comes to red artwork; there are so many unusual and exciting designs to choose from, from pop art to typography.

So there you have it: some of the best ways to add red to your home. Which suggestion is your favorite?

I love red in my clothes and makeup, but prefer neutral tones for my home. I crave the calm that gives me.
