What Houzz contributors are saying:
The Chinese and ancient Egyptians practiced chromotherapy, using colors to heal. They used red to stimulate the body and mind and to increase circulation.A great accent color, the red used in this bright reading area could make it the ideal place for studying a good book.
Consistency through complementary colors. Okay, we all know that red and green reside across from each other on the color wheel. The beauty of this combination is that each color makes the other one even stronger. The living room, with strong red colors in the art and Barcelona chairs complement the lime green chair in the dining room. Notice how the simple bowl of apples brings the library color into the sitting room.
