A strong, pure color, red tends to bring a sense of formality to a room and can create a killer look that not many are brave enough to try. However, be mindful, it draws attention and will immediately pull focus wherever you use it. In other words, it’s safe to use on a beautiful corner or chair but not for home zones which are messy or in desperate need of TLC. It works like a dream against a neutral palette (spicing it up from boring-ville) or we love it also in a crisp white room. The most energizing of all colors, use it only as an accent tone. Especially in a bedroom, where a touch is sexy but used out of balance, you’ll never sleep.
