Red can be bold, sexy, warm, aggressive and timeless. One thing it is not ― it’s never boring. As already hinted, it’s a strong color and one that should be used thoughtfully and carefully in home decorating. It heightens the senses and so it can be too stimulating or too distracting for a room that requires some downtime.

When it comes to working with this color, less is often more. If you can’t commit to a roomful of red, then you can use pops of it through accessories. A sprinkle of reds can already fill the space with its burst of color.

Used wisely, red can draw attention to things often overlooked in a room. It can be intriguing, inviting and enticing. When you want a statement piece, no other color works just as well as red.
