Red has an effect on our psychological state, since it increases heart rate thus, making you breathe faster. A red accent on a neutral background can help draw attention to a single element such as a couch, wall, or table.


Ways to decorate with red abstract art

Furthermore, red mixes well with any color scheme. How do you decorate with red without it drowning in it? Keep reading to learn some quick and easy ways to incorporate red into your home.


To begin with, choose your style to find the right red for your space.


A contemporary design incorporates neutral elements with pops of bold color, most often red. Paint your door a bold, bright red. Inside your home use bright shades in a pillow, rug, or throw.

Certainly, traditional design involves burgundy and black tones. On your door, try a deep, rich red. Inside, decorate with oriental rugs infused with darker reds. On the other hand, tradition design relies on a neutral palette. Above all, a perfect canvas for pops of red. On your door, match the red hues that you used inside of your home. Or skip the red door completely to keep a more neutral theme. Choose a softer approach like a red lamp or red abstract art inside.


Country reds are known to be chalkier and softer. Think of a barn or scarlet. Choose a red with pink and purple hues, like the color of a ripe apple. On your door use barn red. And inside accessorize with country reds in your decor and fabrics.


Add matching red seats and chair upholstery to an airy living room. If you decide to go this bold, make sure your space can handle it. High ceilings, a neutral or muted wall color, and lots of natural light help tone down the bold hue.

I love the pop of red, especially in the 2nd pic with the white background and furniture. You gave some great examples

Thanks, Nijah! I’m glad that you enjoyed the examples.
