If you’re looking to give your living room a new lease of life, then you may want to consider decorating your living room with a few bold red statement pieces. Here are just a few creative ways to incorporate red, into your living rooms color scheme.
Living room with red walls
As red is such a bold color, you may want to consider limiting the use of it to one feature red wall. This wall will be the central focus point of your living room. Leaving the remaining walls a solid neutral color, such as white, will give the illusion that your living room is larger than it is. If you’d prefer to keep your walls the color they are now, consider opting for full length red drapes as an alternative. Just like that you can create a living room with red walls that will leave anyone brethless. Try it!
A red wall decor for living rooms is definitely a good idea if you want to bring your home to life. You could use different shades of that color and play with it! Or you could try using a two-colored style like stripes or dots. Whichever the case and your preferences a red wall decor is good to go!
Living room with red couch
Having a neutral colored living room can really be dull sometimes. A good way to freshen it up would be to add a red couch. Just picture this! A living room with red couch and neutral colors around. Wouldn’t it be a perfect combination? Of course it would. So, do not hesitate to try something like this. Especially if you are really into this kind of decorating ideas. It’s great and we all like it!
A living room with red sofa is as trendy as it might sound to you! It brings life to your home decor and with the proper care it can be easily combined with other furniture. Rugs, curtains or other small details that perfectly fit the color combo! Red sofas in living room are great, stylish, have a soul and offer you something unique. And to your guests too! We bet every visitor will remember your red sofa living room for a long time after their departure.
However, if one or more of your walls is red then avoid purchasing a red couch. You don’t want to feel overwhelmed by the use of red in your living room. If you want to add a hint of red to a neutral colored couch, consider placing a cosy red throw over the back of it. Or alternatively, place a couple of red cushions (of any size or shape) onto your couch. Another option is to place a single red chaise, ottoman or bean bag into your living room.
As you can see, a red couch for living room is not always the best idea. But you can have other red details that make the difference and brighten up the place.
If you don’t want to commit to painting a wall red, or purchasing red furniture you can still add a splash of red to your living room without making a long term commitment or investing a lot of money. Here are four simple ways to add color to your living room.
1. Red based floral displays
Either place flowers of your choice into a red vase or place an assortment of red flowers, such as roses or tulips into a white or glass vase. Alternatively, consider filling a aesthetically pleasing bowl with red apples, which can then be used as a center piece for your coffee table, or your dining table if you have an open plan living and dining room.
2. Red lamp or light shades
Replacing your lamp shade with a red lamp shade is a fool proof, cost effective way to add color to your living room. If you pride yourself on being artistic, you may even be interested in replacing your lamp shade with a home made lamp shade using red material and embellishments of your choosing.
3. Red picture frames
A great way to draw attention to your favorite photographs and paintings is to hang them up inside red picture frames.
4. Red rug or throw
If you’re lucky enough to have a beautiful polished wood floor, consider showcasing it by placing a simple red rug in an area that will attract attention. If you want your living room to have a modern look, then consider opting for a shaggy red carpet. However, if you want your room to have an exotic look, then opt for a red based Turkish rug.
Complementary colors with living rooms with red walls
Although white and red color schemes are probably the most common, there are other color combinations just as aesthetically pleasing. As an example, dark grey complements the use of red. And it is a great alternative to use of black. Paired with red, it makes rooms appear dark and uninviting.
Alternatively, consider pairing red pieces with dark brown pieces. As an example, red furniture or walls look great in a room with dark brown furniture or natural wooden floors.
So what are you waiting for? Red is a great choice of color to liven up your living room. Remember, you don’t have to make drastic changes to give your living room a new look. Even a few red pieces such as a red vase, throw and rug can give your living room a whole new lease on life.
