10 Stunning Ways to Warm Up a Room with Red
It’s cold outside, but that doesn’t mean your home has to feel chilly and gloomy. Even with the heat turned down, you can make your home feel warm and cozy with red accents.
Whether it’s a painted wall, a tiled floor, or a shiny backsplash, these ten stunning rooms will inspire you to work rich, warm red into your interiors this season.
Rich red walls make the dining room both homey and elegant. Go bold with all four, or just paint an accent wall to showcase an art collection.
Give life to a neutral room by tossing a pair of red velvet pillows into your favorite side chairs. Pick up the scarlet hue with a large-scale art piece in vivid tones.
Small red accents such as oven knobs or a set of lacquered Le Creuset roasting pans take a modern kitchen from sterile to snug. Add even more warmth with bright pendant lamps and a touch of green.
Paint the back of a set of bookshelves to add depth, contrast, and warm color to your display of books and curios. Add in a ruby-toned throw blanket or cushions to keep the color scheme unified.
Combine warm colors with rich textures to create spaces where you can feel the warmth without having to turn up the heat. An accent wall in rich vermillion and a plush Persian rug transform this bathroom into a cozy sanctuary.
A red-orange backsplash and counter island set the tone for this otherwise all-white kitchen. In cool weather and gloomy light, even small accents of vivid reds brighten and warm the space.
Transform a small bathroom from cool and neutral to hot lava with a red tiled wall and a coordinating piece of abstract art.
Modern interiors can look sterile without the right colors and pieces. Warm up yours with a set of vibrant red chairs that will brighten the room and make guests feel regal.
Not ready to commit to a ruby wall or crimson backsplash? You can still add warm red to your space with accent pieces such as vases and paintings. Go large-scale for extra impact.
Instead of choosing a neutral color, inject subtle warmth into a room with floor-length curtains in rich coral. Pick up the color in your décor with warm wood and red-patterned furniture.
