A member of the royal colour palette, red is perhaps one of the most visually impacting colours. Evoking both emotional and physical reactions, this warm colour represents excitement, passion, aggression, stimulation, romance, energy, and vivaciousness.
Red is bold and daring. It commands attention and using this colour in an interior design scheme isn’t necessarily for the faint of heart. Whether intending a traditional, contemporary, or timeless effect through a design motif, red is a colour that fits them all.
When paired classically with both black or white accent pieces, deep tones of red can create dramatic senses of luxury and intimacy within a space. Alternatively, when red serves as the accent colour, it adds warming touches of saturation to cooler areas devoid of character.
Adding accessories such as red lampshades to rooms not only adds pops of colour but it also creates an effect of glowing radiance washing over the space. Using hues of red such as crimson, burgundy, merlot, and maroon work well to design a style that reads as sophisticated and mature.
Red is also a colour that can easily overpower other tones within a design scheme, so consideration must be given as to how much red is enough. Also, although pink is technically a tint of red, it is often best to avoid pairing the two together unless one is skilled at advanced techniques of creating balance between the two.
