Tips for using red fabric in your home

The colour red is associated with passion, energy, warmth and optimism

Create a red dining room

Create a red dining room

Red is the ideal colour for dining rooms as it promotes sociable and lively feelings and is said to stimulate the appetite. Using red fabric in your dining room will add drama. You could try using red velvet fabric for a sumptuous and luxurious feel. Painting your walls a dark red will give it a cosy feel and then use dark wood for the floors and dining furniture. Recover dining chairs by using red upholstery fabric. To complete the look dress the table with your best crockery and add flowers and candles as a centrepiece.

Using red fabric for a shabby chic bedroom

Using red fabric for a shabby chic bedroom

Red is a passionate colour so ideal for use in a bedroom! You could create a shabby chic scheme using a red floral fabric. Mix and match this fabric with other florals and striped fabrics for a charming care-worn elegance. You could also use a red toile de jouy fabric. Choose distressed wooden furniture for that lived in feel that is synonymous with this scheme. Finish the scheme with a large ornate mirror and a sparkling chandelier.

Red for playrooms

Children find bright colours stimulating so the primary colours of red, blue and yellow are the perfect choice for a child's playroom. Look for a quirky red fabric perhaps featuring dinosaurs or elephants which would be great as a curtain fabric or for making roman blinds. Paint furniture in primary colours or add colourful knobs or handles to a white chest of drawers for a quick update. Flooring should be practical and easy to keep clean for example vinyl or wood flooring is a good choice.

Scandinavian style

If you are fond of the clean lines and minimalist feel of Scandinavian design then using a red and white colour scheme will work well for you. Use a red and white striped or checked fabric for curtains or roman blinds and keep furniture simple either in white or a light wood such as beech. Paint walls white and choose pale wooden flooring. Add a rug and throws for added texture and to stop the room feeling cold.

Use red as an accent colour

Use red as an accent colour

Red is a great colour to use as an accent colour in an otherwise neutral scheme, it will add a wow factor to your decor. Red works well with most neutral colours including naturals and greys. It is opposite to green on the colour wheel so will work well with this colour. It is adjacent to orange and purple so you could use red as an accent colour with either of these. Use red fabric for cushons or create a unique pair of curtains by using a plain red fabric as a border on a striped or floral fabric. Add a red wool throw and rug to complete the scheme.
