Roses are red...

Monday, July 27, 2009

Well, I have to admit, red was never my favorite color when it comes to decorating. I've always preferred pastel tones, and if there was any stronger color to discuss, it would always be purple or pink, but almost never red.

I simply never payed enough attention to study it more deeply and implement it in the interior. Although, now I admit that this is my personal failure because red also has much to offer. Red color is recommended in residential areas, especially those who care for minimalism.

Psychologists say that red is a color of energy, high blood pressure and power. It promotes feelings of intimacy and passion. Red increases appetite, which explains why it is often found in restaurants, and why it may be a good choice for a formal dining room.

However, I also found a romantic side of red. The secret is to "destroy" the aggressiveness. For this purpose, use dots or stripes motifs in combination with white. This way, when you calm it down, red will show you it's softer and milder face.
