Red is the most powerful color in the rainbow spectrum. A true statement color, it evokes feelings of passion, energy, and liveliness. While bold in concept, the overall effect can be softened. Use in accent pieces only, or use a more subtle red color to lessen the visual impact.
For the bold at heart, red walls are a classic choice. The White House’s famous Red Room included wall coverings and upholstery in the same vivid shade of red. The overall look is stately, refined, and chic.
Another famous fan of the color red? Former fashion editor and cultural doyenne Diana Vreeland, who commissioned designer Billy Baldwin to create an all red living room. Pattern upon pattern, red accessories galore, and a true garden style wallpaper effect, the room reflected Mrs. Vreeland’s exuberant and tour de force personality.
