The bright and strong tones are associated with modern and avant-garde spaces, while the softer ones, such as salmon, coral or red, become a more rustic and elegant decoration.

The powers of red
Stimulating: our body reacts to certain impulses of light waves, according to its wavelength and vibration level. Red is the color with more wave and it is recognized certain stimulating virtues.
Luminous: choosing a bright red you will get a bright room because, like any warm color, red absorbs light. Choosing an intense tone, such as vermilion or garnet, the luminosity of space will intensify further.
Warm and sensual: to choose the red in the decoration is to choose the passion! It is a warm color that will create a hot, even sensual atmosphere, which will be accentuated or not depending on the choice of light sources.
Which rooms are best suited?
The stimulating effects of red predestine it to rooms where there is movement, such as the living room, kitchen or bathroom. But if we choose a clear shade of red, like the ones mentioned above, you will get an immediate effect of warmth and tranquility, two ideal characteristics for a bedroom.
With what colors to combine it?
Combined with white, red stands out and becomes sublime. In a room with white walls, the choice of a sofa, a painting or a red carpet gives the decoration an excellent dynamism.
With earth tones and wooden furniture, red conveys a relaxed and soft effect, providing even a touch of nobility if mixed with antique furniture.
Some design lovers like to combine this color with gray, either in dark, taupe or black. Although the result can be sublime, this option requires a large contribution of natural or artificial light: it is discouraged for a room with small windows or rooms of small dimensions, such as attic because it can produce an opaque and oppressive effect.
Red is a color that quickly dominates others. Its power could make other elements of your decoration go unnoticed. Be attentive to the arrangement of your furniture and if you decide to paint a room red, start only for part of the wall: as with colors like pink green, if you paint the entire room of this color will end up being very recharged. It is possible to make many combinations of red, but you always have to be attentive to the final result and choose the furniture accordingly.
