red-y or not

Red is back with a bang and this time it’s gone bold. Expect to see this vibrant hue across the catwalk and in home interiors. A perfect accompaniment to a monochrome scheme, it can be paired with deep oranges for a retro feel, or with dark woods and bold patterns for a timeless and statement, look.

Deep red walls and a patterned carpet? It sounds ambitious, but if your room has high ceilings and/or plenty of natural light coming through, it really does work. Accessorised with black and white prints, a grey bed and minimal furniture, it’s traditional-meets-modern for 2018.

Zesty oranges and deep, rich reds just work together so well. We love this perfect mix of red, orange and white — the white stops the room from looking or feeling too small. Finish the scheme with bold, modern artwork and sleek furniture for a modern-retro look.

A deeper shade of red lends itself perfectly to rooms with timeless, dark wooden floors. With traditional furniture, a dramatic statement wall mural and an abundance of florals, this romantic and distinctive look isn’t one for wallflowers (excuse the pun).
