Red is typically a bold color choice, but it can be soft and feminine too, as evidenced in the soft floral fabric of a club chair. The fabric reminds me of a dress I made myself in high school. It was a favorite of mine.
If red decorating makes you a little nervous, use just a touch of it in a room. It pairs well with brown in this pretty bedroom and is a great color scheme for fall.

Paint walls red in a room where you frequently entertain guests. Red decorating energizes the space and creates a lively atmosphere.
Draw attention to special details in a room like the sinks and light fixtures in this children’s bathroom.

I think all these places with their red accents are adorable. Not overdone. Just very pretty. I don’t even have a favorite because I liked them all. But that little red shed would be fun wouldn’t it? Thanks for finding these examples and sharing with us.
How could you not love the artwork in the first photo. Some of the best cow artwork EVER!!
These are all so fun. I especially love those red sinks in that bathroom.
The red kitchen cabinets make me feel happy. Funny how a colour can do that.
I loved the little eating nook and the rug on the stairs, I have a red rug in my bedroom and guest, they were my mothers.
I’m thinking of painting one wall red in my living room. It’s a tall wall that has a peak. I forget what it’s called….I’m having a senior moment. Anyway, I think it will add a wonderful ambience to the room.
They’re all wonderful, in MT I had western style patterned rugs with horse blankets (with red in them) on tables. Think I had it in KY also. CO just didn’t seem right for it. Different shades of reds make a difference. Great post.
Red is my favorite color and these examples all show how it can tastefully be used in your home without over powering the rest of the room. Thanks for this post! Very inspiring.
