Decorating With Red

MonochromaticComplementarySplit Complementary


Perhaps one of the most pleasing palettes, analogous colors reside right next to each other on the color wheel. For example, a red analogous color scheme includes purple-red and orange-red. Since they share a common component, these hues always look good together.

Red is said to stimulate appetite and conversation, so it just makes sense to showcase this color in your dining room. And when you mix in full-bodied hues like purple-red and orange-red for good measure, the result is deliciously indulgent.

This analogous color scheme features variations of red throughout the room to achieve an overall look that is harmonious. Creamy vermillion walls create a calming backdrop for this formal dining set. Skewed toward the purple-red side, the set's dark wood tones contrast beautifully, while the off-white chair upholstery acts as a soothing neutral against the room's bold colors. As for the rug, it's analogous all the way! It cleverly combines the entire room's color scheme for a perfectly pulled-together look.

But this room just wouldn't be complete without a few special finishing notes. The wall art above and the silk floral on the buffet bear vibrant shades of purple-red, while the orange-red table toppers and china call back to the wall color. Now, who's ready for a dinner party?
