From Licorice Stick to Valentine, there are a thousand shades of red. Here we take a look at red-inspired interiors in all areas of the home
As a statement colour, the colour red has the power to define the ambiance within a space. Each shade represents its own set of moods. Orange-tinted shades may bring a burst of energy in to a room, while darker shades such as burgundy and maroon evoke broodier undertones for more personal spaces like bedrooms.
Statement walls bring life to an empty space. Paint over a single wall or apply wallpaper with a subtle hue of red. It will spruce up your space without coming off as overpowering.
Don’t forget the ceilings. A coloured ceiling can have a powerful impact on a room, although, most people tend to forget this. If the room is decorated with neutral furnishings, painting your ceiling red will add a punch of colour to the space.
Work on the little details. The idea of incorporating red into their homes seems rather intimidating to some, but there are tricks of the trade. You can add little touches like changing the colour of your drapes, the upholstery on your furniture or even cushions and throws. These are easy changes which can have a big effect on the overall feel of the space.
