It may be cold outside, but that doesn't mean your home needs to be "cool" too! Break the cool colors in your home decoration by using some of the hottest color reds! The color red gives a house warmth and makes it more inviting. Use these three decor ideas and tips to add the warmth and excitement you need.
1- Decorate with hearts. You can use heart shaped decor items in some rooms of your house for a romantic and fun look. Use even more hearts on Valentine's Day and other special days. You can also add some pieces (like textiles) that have heart motifs on them. The hearts are also on towels, pillows and wallpapers.
2- Go bold. Especially in winter, you can easily use bolder and darker colors and create a contrast with the white snow you see outside the window. There are many red shades that you can use. Choose subtle tones for a traditional decoration, or go with the light red hue for a modern touch. It is also fun to use red on frames and on artwork. A large piece of red art can act as the center of your room.
3- Use the paint unexpectedly. Even if red is not in your room's color palette, you can spice up the look by adding small red pieces here and there. Place a single red rose in the vase on your dining table. Place some small red ceramic hearts on a kitchen shelf. A red carpet and a red towel can also spice up your room easily.
