A Touch of Red Interior Decorating

Are you afraid of using too much red in your home décor? Never fear! There are many shades of red as well as a variety of ways to incorporate it into your home decorating ideas without it becoming overwhelming. We are in the process of choosing window coverings for the great room in our home (dining room, family room and kitchen). The predominant colors in the room are dark blue (some cobalt), dark gold and ecru with off-white walls. What could be used for an accent color? Red, of course!

That is the focus for this decorating article–how to use red as an interior decorating idea.

Let’s get started!

Color trends for interior decorating ideas  finds reds moving towards orange with a clean bright tone. A deeper red, moving toward purple, is also a trend. The color red can add passion  as well as pizzazz to a room while demanding attention. It can call up emotions from rage to love while at the same time give a feeling of warmth. You will not only find reds in fabric but also in stain in wood products. You might also find high gloss red as well as red metallic finishes.

Red can be used in small or large amounts in accent pieces, carpets, upholstery fabric and in window treatments. Instead of painting a room red, paint just one wall as your accent wall, which will
invigorate the room as well as give it a feeling of warmth. Floral arrangements with a touch of red along with pillows, vases and throws can all be used to tie the room together.

The red in our great room will be incorporated in the following ways:

* Window coverings – neutral background tapestry-looking floral with brick red, navy and green accents

* Large picture on dining room wall with gold frame and blue, red and ecru accents

* Upholstered side chair with brick red slipcover decorated with fringe and tassel

* Centerpiece and runner on table – coordinating fabric and  & eacute;cor
