Houzz is the new way to design your home.
red is dramatic
Throw in a red piece of furniture for added drama. This dynamic and bold design is accomplished through the high-gloss diamond patterned floor partnered with the deep red sofa. It is a very eye-catching and striking combination.
Red can be cozy. Reminiscent of the old movie theaters, this media room features huge red velvet cushions and pillows. Flat black paint along the ceiling and floors and vertical stripes on the front and back walls all work together to create a comfortable, but updated glamourous look.
Use red to tone down darker colors. This sexy dining room features black graphic wallpaper, a black floor and a black dining table and buffet. The bright red cowhide rug adds a much needed splash of color to the dark-themed room. The white lamps on the buffet, white painted ceiling and trim, and the crystal chandelier balance all the dark elements within the room.
Try a new shade of red in an Old-World setting for a new look. Chrome squared contemporary chairs and hexagon shaped tile on the floor, paired with the cut-out molded ceiling, marry a modern and vintage style perfectly. The pinkish red tones in the floor and artwork add to the modern feel.
Balance is crucial. This living room combines elegance and contrast by utilizing wall paint in a matte black, which is offset by the black-and-white photography. A high-gloss Asian-inspired cabinet in a bright orange-red adds a nice infusion of color and pattern. The white chairs across from the black and white patterned sofa make everything work together.

Subtle splashes of red using natural materials. This simple living area has small touches of glamour infused into the decor. A chandelier adds elegance, the black vases with red berries and the display basket with fruit bring in touches of red. Sometimes it doesn't take much to have a big impact.
