It’s all about the colour red

Incorporating the colour red in your home doesn’t just mean we’ve hit the Christmas season. There are some great ways you can use shades of red in your interior to bring warmth, boldness and timeless design into your home.

Red can raise a room’s energy level – it’s an intense colour that makes our adrenalin pump and when used in a living or dining room it draws people together and can stimulate conversation.

Here are some perfect ways to introduce the colour red into your home.


Soft furnishings

A comfy cushion or a cosy throw are great for those wanting a subtle addition of the colour red.

These bright Red Velour cushions from Furniture Village and Red Check Throw from M&Co will look great on the sofa in an otherwise neutral lounge and will bring some warmth to your cosy nights in.



For the braver ones among us why not try a red wallpaper feature wall? This Ditsy Foral in Rouge Red Wallpaper from Woodchip & Magnolia, is sure to be a talking point!


Bold furniture choice

Red furniture will give some added va va voom to your home. This Red Lacquered Ladies Cabinet from Orchid will be perfect for adding some colour to a bedroom.
