Color 101: Red
Red can be intense, dramatic, and eternally flattering -- a bold backdrop for strong accessories like silver and porcelain. Red's stimulating effect makes it a great choice in dining rooms. Charcoal grays, dark chocolates, and rich caramels have enough strength to balance vibrant reds, while deeper reds match up with muted gold and bronze tones. Red is also a versatile accent color for any season, and creates appealing warm-weather combinations with bolder shades such as moss green or periwinkle.
