What Houzz contributors are saying:
Using red at home. Red makes a bold backdrop for artwork and collections, so it could be a wonderful choice for that gallery wall you’ve been planning. It also works well with the other warm hues (orange and yellow) in social spaces like the living and dining rooms. The farther away you reach on the color wheel — for instance, pairing red with turquoise — the more dramatic and bold the color scheme will feel. In smaller doses, red can bring that perfect pop of color to an all-neutral or black and white design.
Gallery wall. Red walls create a striking backdrop for an eclectic collection of artwork. This is also a great way to tone down the red a bit — the frames will cover up some of the surface area, leaving just enough red exposed to be exciting without overwhelming your space.Black and white. What will go with your red art wall? Try white upholstered furniture, a crisp black and white rug, and simple white curtains. Tie in the wall color by choosing toss pillows covered in interesting textiles with a bit of red in them — perhaps made from pieces of an old kilim rug or sari silk.
