Happy Valentine’s Day
Not for the faint of heart, red rooms inspire passion and promote appetite. Whether you add a dash of red to spice up a neutral palette or go all out and paint every wall red -- a laquered red wall is to die for -- you’re sure to ignite interest and get conversations going in a red room.
Here are a few examples of how to do it right…
Those fabulous red laquered walls speak for themselves!
A great way to use red without the long-term commitment. Red drapes along an entire wall. This room looks rich, luxurious and comfortable.
Chic, modern and tasteful.
A lone red Arne Jacobsen "egg" chair draws the eye into the room and makes it super chic and comfortable. I just want to lounge in that chair in front of the fireplace all night...
A fresh and tangy palette that keeps the room open and airy...
I love the simplicity of this room. The midcentury red velvet swivel chair is just what it needs to keep it from looking drab.
A beautiful way to do a traditional library. The chairs keep it from being too intense. The flowers make it happy and welcoming.
