I have always loved the color red and have always wanted to paint a room red but have always been afraid to, in my opinion the color red is a hard color and could go terribly wrong. But a room right makes me swoon.

Here is what I learned about the color or red. The color red is a emotionally intense color, red stimulates a faster heartbeat and breathing. It is also the color of love. Red clothing gets noticed and makes the wearer appear heavier. Since it is an extreme color, red clothing might not help people in negotiations or confrontations. Red cars are popular targets for thieves or for accidents.

In decorating, red is usually used as an accent. Decorators say that red furniture should be perfect since it will attract attention.

Do you like a red room? Here are some examples of a red room done right!

  1. I’m thinking about painting my living room red. The color I have picked out is similar to your second photo…although maybe one shade lighter. I’ve had it hanging on my wall for a week or two trying to make sure that it’s the right color for my room.

  2. You should go for it, that way I can live vicariously through you!!
