When designing a space, the decision of color is extremely important as it dictates the mood of the space. Color theorists as early as the ancient Greeks have been assigning meanings and symbolism to different colors. White is perceived as pure, yellow as soothing, purple as royal. No color is as widely interpreted as red. To many Eastern cultures, red symbolizes good luck. Red is the color assigned to passion, romance, love and excitement. It is also often the color associated with evil or danger.
Red is one of my favorite colors to use in a space. While some people shy away from it, there are many ways to use it, whether as an accent or a dominant color, in a way that is calming, fun and just plain gorgeous!
So.... Are you ready to add some red to your home?
