Red Rules

The chro­matic em­bod­i­ment of power and pas­sion, red’s re­vival is mak­ing our hearts soar

Living Etc - - BATHROOM TRENDS -

This strik­ing hue may not have dark­ened our doors since the Eight­ies, but hold on to your hats: red is back and hot­ter than ever. A shade that takes no pris­on­ers, red is en­er­gis­ing, in­vig­o­rat­ing, and the colour of ac­tion. ‘For 2019, it’s time to rip up the min­i­mal­ist rule book as myr­iad new shades, such as vi­brant red, stage a come­back in the bath­room,’ says Rachel Martin, mer­chan­dis­ing di­rec­tor of CP Hart.

Ac­cord­ing to 2LG Stu­dio, which de­vel­oped this eye-catch­ing in­stal­la­tion for CP Hart’s Water­loo show­room, the bath­room is the per­fect place to em­brace red. ‘It can be used like a rich jewel that will strengthen your spirit for the day ahead,’ says the stu­dio’s co-founder, Rus­sell White­head. ‘I be­lieve this year is a time for brav­ery and bold­ness. We all need to burn brighter and find cre­ative so­lu­tions for the prob­lems we may be fac­ing. A lit­tle bit of play­ful­ness and a lot of pas­sion is what we love in an in­te­rior to get the spirit soar­ing, and a com­bi­na­tion of lus­cious red and pink truly gives us life.’
