Add Passion, Energy and Excitement with Red Accents in the Home!

Red color in your home attracts attention and evokes feelings of love, excitement and romance, energy, passion. You don't need an entire home of red walls and rooms full of red to get the benefits and excitement of the color red.

A little red punch of color goes a long way and is fun and easy to add to your home decorating plan. I have at least two rooms in our home with red and we love how warm and vibrant red is. Plus, I love how easy it makes holiday decorating a snap based around all the red!

Use red accents for home decorating in some of my favorite simple pieces such as red sectional or chairs, red accent lamps, candles, pillows, bedding and kitchen accessories with our favorite items we've gathered together for you right here.

We've also included a few video demonstrations on how to decorate with red for ideas and inspiration plus links to the psychology of color to help you with more suggestions to get your own creativity flowing for your home decorating plan.

Think of adding red to your home any time of the year and not just during the holidays, you'll love it!

Best Places to Shop for Decorating Accent Pieces

Online lets you shop from the convenience of home.

Your favorite department store - check the clearance section.

Home improvement stores for paint and lighting.

Discount stores for picture frames, candles and knick knacks.

Craft shops for baskets and flowers.

Thrift shops sometimes offer hidden gems, check back often.

Scan your neighborhood for pops of red at garage and yard sales.

Read the newspaper ads for red pieces your neighbors no longer want.


Take a look at ways to add this fun color to your room.

Brushed Red Tablelamps - Set of Two - You can paint an entire room red or better yet and even easier is to add pops of red color with accent pieces like these

Candlesticks

One of the least expensive ways to add red to any room.

In porcelain, glass, leather, ceramic or wood -

I think candle sticks are one of the easiest ways to decorate on a budget and own lots of different shapes and sizes to scatter around the room on tables, a fireplace, next to the television or on shelving.
