Red walls

Different shades of red can be used to create different looks in a living room.

For example, a brighter shade of red can be used to create an energetic and vibrant space, while a deeper shade of red can be used to create a more intimate and cozy space.

No matter what look you’re going for, there is a red shade that is perfect for your living room.

Design ideas with paint

In addition to different shades, there are also different types of paint that can be used to create a red feature wall.

For example, you could use a glossy paint to create a sleek and modern look, or you could use a matte paint to create a more subtle and sophisticated look.

No matter what your personal style is, there is a type of paint that will suit your needs.

Particular shade

If you have a good size room try making a feature wall using Heartthrob paint by Sherwin Williams. A nice deep red that will look stunning with a white media cabinet featured against it.

The media cabinet is ideal for your TV set up and will ‘pop’ against the red wall.

Keeping a modern crisp look, other walls feature a nice Extra White, again by Sherwin Williams, or any other white which has a clean look and maybe no undertones.

The living room floor

When it comes to the flooring in your living room, there are a few different options that you can choose from.

One popular option is hardwood flooring. Hardwood floors are classic and elegant, and they can be used to create a variety of looks. Another popular option is carpet. Carpet is cozy and comfortable, and it can be used to create a warm and inviting space.

Lastly, you could also opt for tile flooring. Tile is easy to clean and maintain, and it can be used to create a variety of looks as well.

Lighting in a red living room

A favourite addition to a living room is the choice of lighting.

To break up those red walls go for something that is pretty impressive. A stunning pendant light shown here resembles the shape of a dandelion and will add pattern to the walls during the evening.

This also helps to soften the hard lines and cooler colors and brings some warmth into the room. Accent lighting can be achieved with two table lights with a red faux leather base and white shades. Shop the Look.

Red Furniture

One of the best ways to add red to your living room is through your furniture. Red furniture can be used to create a bold and eye-catching look, or it can be used to add a pop of color to your space.

If you’re looking for red living room ideas, consider using red chairs, red sofas, or even red coffee tables.

Red Accent Chairs

Accent chairs are a great way to add color to your living room and incorporate your design ideas. They can be used as standalone pieces or they can be used to accent other pieces of furniture in your space.

If you’re looking for red living room ideas, consider using an accent chair to add a touch of color to your space. You can also use accent chairs to create a focal point in your living room.

For example, you could use a red accent chair near your fireplace, or you could use a red accent chair in your entertainment area or sitting room.

Different Types of Accent Chairs

There are a variety of different types of accent chairs that you can choose from.

One popular option is a wingback chair. Wingback chairs are classic and elegant, and they can be used to create a variety of looks.

Textiles and Soft furnishings

Textiles and soft furnishings are a great way to add comfort and style to your home. There are a variety of different types including rugs, curtains, cushions, throws, and more.

Textiles and soft furnishings can be used to create a variety of looks, from traditional to contemporary.

Rugs are a great way to add comfort and style to your home. Rugs can be used to define a space or simply add a touch of color to your room.

Carpets and Rugs

Cozy Red Carpet

This rug is designed for added luxury in your living room. A carpet that is soft underfoot and will fit nicely in your red living room ideas. Available in various sizes and colors. Shop the Look.

Curtains and blinds

Curtains are another great option for adding style and comfort to your home. Curtains or blinds can be used to block out light, create privacy, or simply add a touch of color to your room.

The joy of curtains is that they feel warmer in a room than blinds and come in a huge variety of shades and patterns.

Faux Silk Curtain

Red Curtains long

The Faux Shantung Silk is produced in the Far-East and has a light control level of 3. Very beautiful and with deep hues. Imagine these against white walls.

Burgundy Extra Wide Blackout Curtain

Blinds

The most common type of window blind is the Venetian blind. Venetian blinds are made from a variety of materials, including wood, plastic, and metal.

Venetian blinds can be used to create a variety of looks, from traditional to contemporary.

Another type of window blind is the roller blind. Roller blinds are made from many materials, including fabric and vinyl.

Red Roller

Red Roller blind

The Deco window spring roller blinds have a built-in spring system which is how you control the highering and lowering of the shade.

The blind can be left at any length with no effort at all. Just one note – the blinds only come up to a maximum depth of 84 inches in height.

You can also have wooden blinds or metal blinds which does depend on your budget.

Cushions and Throws

Cushions and throws are a great way to add comfort and style to red living rooms. If you want to incorporate red then a cushion or throw is the way to go.

Personally, I would not advise adding a solid block red cushion to a red couch. Try to make an impact. For example, a white sofa will look good with patterned red cushions.

A red sofa may look great with either black or white cushions. Judge how much red you have in your room as you want it to look subtle.

Gingham throw pillows

Linen cushions in red

A pack of two Gingham cushions will look great on a white sofa. If you have a large living room and a large couch then pick out a variety of cushions in other shades. Shop the Look.

Warmer red throw

Red Walls – Abstract Art Decor

What is Abstract Art?

Abstract art is a type of art that does not attempt to represent an accurate representation of a person, place, or thing. Instead, abstract art uses shapes, colors, and textures to create a work of art.

Abstract art can be created using many different media, including painting, sculpture, and photography.

Abstract Art 1

 

Abstract art is a popular choice for many people because it can be used to create a variety of looks, from traditional to contemporary.

It is also a great way to add color and interest to your home. If you’re looking for a way to add some personality to your space, then abstract art is a great option. Visit our page for Abstract Art.
