RED is the color that most attracts attention. It is associated with visibility, proximity, dynamics and activity. It is packed full of energy and excitement. People who in the past shied away from this color now tend to be more adventurous, feeling bolder in their decorating. The key to success when decorating with a statement color is to select a few key places to let it shine. It is easy to go too far with red. Start by using this powerful color sparingly. Provide balance with light colored neutrals. Add a piece of furniture. It does not take much to get big results. If your favorite artwork contains red , it will get noticed as will red accent accessories. Red pillows are an easy way to introduce a new color in the mix on your sofa, bed and even porch furniture. Try some red table linens. The color is known to enhance taste in the adventure of eating.
