Decorate With Red to Give Your Space a High-Design Vibe

Red never goes out of style, although different tones of the color will be more popular for a while. A deep, rich red is the “it” color of the moment and we’ve got some great ideas on how you can decorate with this rich, sumptuous hue.

Also known as brick, merlot, spice, chili, ruby or deep red, this red is spicy, exotic and vibrant. It’s fairly neutral so you can pair the newest red with greys, chocolates, tans or warmer colors. Here are 24 ideas on how you can decorate with red for a high-design look that’s both inviting and intimate.

Rich red tiles

If you want to add rich texture to a space or accent wall, a red tile is the perfect addition. If the foundation of your room is white, red tiles can also add a modern feel to the space.

Decorating with red in the kitchen

Red in the kitchen may be the most natural place for the color. That’s because some say the color red can increase your appetite. You can decorate with red by adding a red backsplash, adding red barstools or painting your cabinets or kitchen island in red.
