The Right Red for Your Entryway

When it comes to decorating a foyer or entry space, keep your décor minimal and let your wall art serve as the main focal point. Add pops of red décor to tie in your vibrant print. Consider pairing a vivid red with a contrasting cool shade for optimal visual interest. Blue-green hues like turquoise and teal pair excellently with a bright, warm red.

Bright Red Kitchen Décor

While combining red and pink may have been a design faux pas in the past, this trendy combo is getting hotter by the day. Consider a rosy, monochromatic color scheme for your kitchen. This feminine look is both trendy and welcoming. Hang a print that has both apple red and dusty rose details. Add raw, unfinished materials like brushed metal and concrete to balance the blush hues and give your space an edgy twist.

A Ruby Red Living Room

Combining classic prints with modern details is a huge trend for 2021. Hang a vintage-inspired red print over a contemporary sofa for a dynamic look. Keep your living room light and bright by hanging a piece of wall art that includes palm leaves and other tropical blossoms. Choose velvety textiles in rose and ruby shades for a sophisticated touch.

Warm Red Bedroom Ideas

Stick to warm-toned reds in the bedroom for a cozy touch. As we hang onto the end of summer, pair your rich reds with bright whites and ivory tones. This will ensure that your space still looks seasonally appropriate. Don’t be afraid to mix different versions of warm red for a more casual, comfortable look. Hang a piece of wall art that mixes red with neutrals.

Embrace a Red Dining Space

Add a pop of red in your dining space. While red is no stranger to formal dining rooms, it’s time to put a twist on tradition. Rather than dousing your dining room in regal reds like burgundy, use tomato red as an exciting accent. Decorate with raw wood and unpolished metals for a more contemporary take. Accessorize with fresh herbs and other indoor greenery for the perfect balance of warm and cool colors.
