Red Home Decor

Updated on January 1, 2013

Red Rooms

Whether you color your room red or decorate with splashed of red accents, bringing red in your home decor can enhance your home and your mood. Red lamps, chairs, plates, appliances or even a full red wall can invoke emotion and energy.

In China red is the color of prosperity and joy, something everyone could use a little more of. Red Decor can also invoke energy, enthusiasm and the desire to go for your dreams. For this reason it's great to place in a home office or even kitchens. If you find you are energized by red, you may want to leave it out of your bedroom, though some say red invokes passion and lust.

You may think red and purple clash, but the combination can create a visually interesting and pulled together room. Also note the colorful painting in back that combines both shades for a cohesive look.
