No other color says style and glamor like red. It’s the universal color that adds elegance and sophistication to any space. It can also be a very intimidating color to incorporate. The key for using red is using it sparingly throughout your space. Don’t over use it or you might wind up with a headache. Pairing it with the right colors is also an important detail. I like pairing red with neutral colors and then adding splashes of salmon or even blue to keep it looking modern and fresh. Below we see Julia from Gal Meets Glam pairing her red trench coat with a pair of blue wide leg jeans. It looks effortlessly lovely. To incorporate this in your home, get the look here:
Color Inspiration: Coat.
Use Gypsy Red on an accent wall, in upholstered furniture and in accessories.
Color Inspiration: Scarf and Skirt.
A blue such as Rainstorm can be used in fabrics and patters.
A pretty accent color to incorporate with this red is Coral Bead. Use it in fabrics, accessories and wallpapers. Also, create a neutral backdrop with whites and grays.
We see below a living space that incorporates all of these color elements. What are your thoughts?
