Here is a perfect example of what red can be. It’s hot, passionate, primal and forceful. It represents the element of FIRE.
Yes red is a great color to have in the home but be careful where you put it. It also has a softer side which is achievement, motivation, tapping into our spontaneity and is just pure untamed energy.
To me, this is the color of what children represent. It’s youthful in the fact that it (red) has no fear and lives on the edge, remember when we were young and had that amazing feeling of life and youth? This is red.
What are some great reds to use? This is one hue that has SO many options to choose from unlike less say, yellow. With yellow there are only a handful that I’d have in my home but red, the sky is the limit!
Here is a sample of how red would look in your kitchen. Now this is Real Red SW6868. Not sure if you’d want to start your day with this much energy but if you do, this would be a perfect look for you!
Bring it into the home and ignite that feeling again. Perhaps an accent wall in the bedroom, accents in the kitchen to fire up the day or even a little here and there throughout the house to keep the flame of excitement going!
