Red is a strong, bold color that can perk up a space year-round. If you are looking to infuse the color red into your home decor, here are some tips on how to do it.
▪ Shades of red: Red comes in all shades and tones, and you don’t have to limit yourself to using just one in a space. For example, it’s OK to mix tomato red with burgundy. This technique essentially involves using a tint or shade of a dominate color. In home decor, some of the easiest shades of red to work with in a space are ruby red, bright poppy and rich tomato. These shades of red can serve as ideal pops of color.
When looking for colors to pair with red, consider neutral colors that will not conflict such as black, brown, charcoal gray, white and taupe.
