How to Decorate Using Red

How to Decorate Using Red ---
Today's Studio 5 Segment

Why use red?

Adding a little red to a room gives the space LIFE!

It creates a pop and a finishing touch. Because red is a more intense color, less of it is needed to create an effect. Some designers say you should use red in every room. I'm a believer you should at least try red in every room. Depending on the shade, red has the potential to accent nearly every color scheme and design. It does not have to be an overwhelming addition, such as a large piece of red furniture (although I'm in love with my own red couch!).

Even small pops of color and accents can add an element of interest and even unexpected surprise to your style. You would be surprised at all the little red items you can find around your house, and you don't have to spend a dime!
