Where to use red

Winnipeg Free Press - Section F - - HOMES -

Be­cause of the strong emo­tional and phys­i­o­log­i­cal re­sponse to this bold colour, it may be best used in rooms where you aren’t spend­ing hours at a time in one sitting. The din­ing room is the per­fect area to try a bold colour like red be­cause it will in­duce con­ver­sa­tion, ap­petite and ideas. This is why red is a pop­u­lar colour in restau­rants. On the other hand, red might not be the best choice for a bed­room or a child’s room where you want a sense of re­lax­ation and tran­quil­ity. A red kitchen can be stun­ning as long as you counter the colour with light or white cab­i­netry and good light­ing. In small doses, red can be used in any room, so don’t dis­card it al­to­gether by any means when plan­ning your colour pal­ette.
