Red and Restful Home Interiors

Restful is not the first feeling that raises to mind when we think of the colour red. Red is known for passion, energy, and even anger. However, these three home designs display a skillfully balanced approach to the red accent through intelligent spacing and use of tone. We’ll look at red decor that's cooled by pale grey expanses and white intervals, before we tour an apartment that’s coloured only by its furniture. Finally we’ll visit a sophisticated home interior where an earthy red palette is pushed back by solid volumes of black, cream and white. Red is unmistakably the starring character in each of these homes, but never overplays its part.
