Red Home Decor – When Your Home Needs Warmth, Energy and a Touch of Passion

You’ll Find More Red Home Décor Here

If your home needs a little warmth mixed in with some passionate energy, then don’t hesitate to add red to your décor.

Don’t worry if bright red isn’t your favorite color; there are many shades of red you can choose from; purple-red, burgundy, faded red, plum red, fire engine red, and more.

If you love red but aren’t brave enough to use it in your main furnishings or on the wall, then, as usual, there’s always the accessories. Try it in pillows, throw blankets, wall art, table accessories, or lamps. Keep the base of the space neutral and get creative with the smaller décor pieces.

The Meaning Behind the Color Red

If you consider yourself ambitious with a determined nature, then the color red is a natural fit for you. You’re probably a  strong-willed person with leadership qualities. But hey, if you’re thinking, ‘that’s not me,’ perhaps your love of the color red is trying to tell you something about yourself that you haven’t yet tapped into.

Red is also the color of energy, which means it’s the color of physical life force. In other words, an awakened soul through movement, whether it’s physical or mental, is symbolic of the color red. Add some red accessories to your home gym, or better yet, add a touch of red to your reading room – awaken physically and mentally!

Do you need a boost of confidence, if so add some red to your space. Red, the power color, inspires the spirit within, and whether you get that boost of will or not, it doesn’t hurt to place a little of that burden on the color red.

  1. Red has never been a color I tend to use ~ in home decor or even in clothing ~ but I DID enjoy learning the meaning of the color red in your description above. I guess I’m not a very bold person, but red tends to make me feel self-conscious. I lean more toward the muted colors of nature (browns, greens, blues, etc.) I always find your color articles interesting, though, Barbara. 🙂

    • Thank you so much Pat, I really appreciate that! I have to agree about red, it can be a difficult color to work with – I tend to go for more of the burgundy shades which is what my family room is – the walls are a butterscotch as well, so it really warms up the space. It’s so cozy in here I never want to leave this room, lol. I haven’t tackled a space with bright red though. However, when the boys were little, each time I had to do a nursery up I changed the color scheme – for child three I did do a primary colored nursery and it included red pieces – but its easy to work with primary colors in a nursery that’s for sure.
