The Red Room

Red doesn’t need much of an introduction, does it? Red symbolizes the fire element in feng shui and can bring energy to a room and vitality to your spirit. It is the color of fame, success, and the color to wear when you want to accomplish a goal or add some personal power to your day. Red means action in full force, which is understandable why it is the patron color of Valentine’s Day, passion, and love.
A cozy red cashmere throw is an easy and subtle way to introduce some red into your bedroom, especially for the color shy.

Pillows in red are an instant lift and can warm up the atmosphere, especially during cold winter months (loving the velvet and color combination).

Red art makes an bold impact (and so does Kate Moss, for that matter).

Fashion illustrations with red walls and a zebra rug certainly make this room fit for a fashionista guest. What more could one ask for? The bedding and chair are just as exquisite.

More red walls in a brighter hue are a commitment, for sure, and extends quite dramatically to the bench, lighting, and art.

Why not go full out red?  The mural, the chair, pillows and throw make this room indelible.
