Having red in your home’s interior décor

Red is a very strong and powerful color. It’s says confidence and it’s a very energetic color that makes everything pop. It’s important to know exactly when and how to use this particular color because it can get easily out of control. When it come to interior design, red is a common choice but people are still afraid to include it in their homes. Here are some tips that might help with that.

If you decide to go with red for your walls, it might be a little overwhelming because it’s not a very relaxing color. It would still look good in the living room for example and you don’t necessarily have to paint all the walls in red. You can choose only one wall to color or you can opt for decorations instead. Red drapes are very beautiful and they really make a room stand out.

If, on the other hand, you choose to be more subtle, you can go with red furniture. The sofa would look good in red or the chairs/armchairs. Also, you can choose a rug with some red prints. Don’t be afraid to use this color but be careful not to exaggerate. Red can help you create a very dramatic décor if used properly or it can simply be the touch of color your room needs.{pics from  Red online, 2.Anna Williams, 3.Chris Chen, 4.Bobo Olsson, 5.Pierre Yovanovitch, 6.Brad Ford ID, 7.Gilles Trillard, 8.Di Cicco Vinci, 9.from the desk of lola}.
