Big Splashes of Red.

Hello there! I’m Jenn and I’m a writer with Arcadian Home Decor, a website and blog that profiles top home decor trends. My first job out of university was managing an interior design magazine, and since then I’ve been addicted to Jonathan Adler, antiques, and anything with loads of colour, like big splashes of red. I spend my mornings poring over inspiring and creative websites, and a must-hit is Helen Roden’s Interior Design Blog. I feel privileged to be guest posting here today, so thank you Helen!

A major dose of colour can completely transform a room, from kitchens to dens and everything in-between. Dramatic, fun, and elegant all at once, big splashes of red infuse a space with liveliness. While many shy away from this daring hue, used in the right context it’s oh-so-fashionably chic. Here are eight rooms that incorporate big splashes of red in its home decor.

Candy Stripes Are Sweet

Red Rooms

Red and white stripes are the perfect way to jazz up a child’s bedroom designed for two. The built-in furniture helps keep the space from feeling too busy.

Rouge a la Cuisinere

Red Rooms

Big splashes of red work well in a kitchen that is complemented with stainless steel and various shades of grey, as seen here in the flooring and counter tops.

Modern Marvel

Red Rooms

A minimalist bedroom with plenty of light wood tones gets a blast of red from the area rug, random pieces of furniture, and portions of the bedding. All these pieces in a matching shade of red, along with two singular blooms, provide just enough colour to keep this space from feeling too drab.

Fit For a Posh Princess

Red Rooms

Greens, yellows, and whites are lovely for a little girl’s bedroom, but this look goes from ordinary to extraordinary with big splashes of red. The tufted built-in nook of the armoire is a cute touch.

A Traditional Favourite

Red Rooms

Fire engine red wood cabinets are more warm than they are over-the-top, giving this utilitarian space a tad of whimsy against a functional grey backdrop.

Mod Materials

Red Rooms

Red leather as well as a high-gloss buffet topped with glass becomes a contemporary match made in stylish heaven. The black and white wall art gives centre stage to the bold hue.

A Dramatic Pair

Red Rooms

Red covers every surface of this spacious bathroom, from the textured wallpaper to the ceiling, with a painted black wood floor to keep the colour from feeling too overwhelming. The circular tub is also a spectacular feature of this room.

Candy Cane Charm

Red Rooms

A regal bed swathed in lovely red and white candy cane stripes is piled high with pillows and draped in a stately canopy. The natural table decorations and light fixtures keep things from looking too playful.

Red truly makes a bold statement on your interior designed space. What do you think the post? Comments are welcome! Also don’t forget to check out Arcadian Home Decor for some home accessories that make a statement in your home!.
