Red color psychology and emotions
Red is a very powerful color that is bold, rich, and definitely evokes emotions. It is a color of passion, anger, and love – all strong feelings that red can perfectly portray. Red is also associated with warmth and strength. Since it is the color of blood, in some cases it also represents life.
Red is a color that gives energy and motivation to act, so it is perfect for the living room or kitchen – those are the areas in the house where being busy and full of energy can be useful. Whether you are having a dynamic and fun evening with friends in the living room or cooking dinner in the kitchen, red wallpaper will perfectly help you enjoy those moments fully.
Red in combination with other colors
Even though red is quite a dominant shade, it pairs well with lots of other colors. It all depends on what mood, style, or feeling you are going for. Here are a few popular options!
Red and gold
For a luxurious look, pair red with gold. Both colors have a warm undertone and will look rich and coherent together. To make the red and gold combination feel even more royal, choose a red that has a lot of purple in it. A great example of that is the “Burgundy Elegance” red wallpaper.
Red and blue
This is a classic combination that supplemented with white, gives you a strong, clean sailor vibe. But just red and blue will also look perfect together as the calm blue very nicely offsets the dramatic red. All shades of blue are great options for pairing with red – from navy to light blue. Check out these blue and red wallpapers for inspiration: “Red Berry”, “Decorative Floral”, or “Idyllic Leaves”.
Red and green
Since red and green are complimentary colors in the color wheel, this combination will always look good and balanced. The only thing to be aware of – these are also classic Christmas colors, so if you don’t want your house to feel like a Santa’s workshop all year round, make sure you choose green and red tones that are at least a little bit different from the Christmas palette. Great red wallpapers with green elements are: “Safari Jungle”, “Birds and Flowers”, and “Baroque Bouquet”.
Red Wallpaper – find the perfect match for you
Red is an amazing color that will make any room pop. If you are feeling bold and don’t shy away from expressive designs, red wallpaper is just the thing for you – use it as an accent wall or go all out and wallpaper all four walls. But if you are not there yet, you can always choose red wallpaper with just a few red accents and use it modestly. There are red wallpaper options for everyone!
Red wallpaper with flowers
Red roses and poppies are just a few of the flowers that naturally are red and therefore look amazing on red wallpaper as well. They add a pop of color but it is not overwhelming. Flowers in decor usually bring in more feminine, gentle vibes but that doesn’t mean you cannot use red wallpaper with flower designs for main areas like the living room. Especially if the flowers are bright red! Here are some cute red wallpapers with flowers to check out: “Wild Poppies”, “Gentle Rose”, “Poppy Field”, or “Japanese Cherry”.
Red wallpaper with animals
Have you seen red animals in real life? No? Us too! But there are some that are naturally red (think about sea animals) and then there are some that have a red hue only in the imaginary world roaming wildly on your wallpapered walls. If you are intrigued, take a look at these red wallpapers with animals: “Wild Monkey”, “Red Octopus”, and “My Lobster”.
Red wallpaper for eclectic interior design
When it comes to bold and colorful designs, an eclectic interior is one of the first ones that come to mind. Brightly colored walls, fun decor, functional but exceptional furniture – in eclectic style everything is mixed together in a coherent room look. And the vivid red just fits right in! Try these red wallpapers for an eclectic style: “Abstract Ditsy”, “Your Mystic”, or “Japanese Florals”.
Red wallpaper as an accent
When choosing a bright red accent just keep in mind that it will show up really strong and if you are not going for a vivid red interior, it is better to leave the red to a minimum. In little scale, red will look great as an accent wall or featured in small details or decor elements – since it is such a bright a powerful tone it will easily show up even when used in small amounts.
Red wallpaper as a backdrop
If you want just a little bit of red, use red wallpaper as a backdrop for shelves or cabinets. It will add a splash of red, but it won’t be too much. And you will always have a beautiful design to look at when you get dishes, cups, or anything else from the cupboards.
Red wallpaper in extraordinary places
Surprise yourself and use red wallpaper in unexpected places! For example, use it on stairs – add the design to the vertical part of the step. You can also line with wallpaper the inside of drawers. No one will know, but you will get a wave of good feelings when you open them. A fridge is another great example of where to add a splash of red wallpaper.
Red wallpaper in small niches
If you live in an old house, there are definitely a lot of nooks and crannies, and small niches, and rooms that don’t have the perfect rectangular shape. Use it to your advantage and add red wallpaper to some of the oddly shaped areas! It will make all the room decor look more intentional and will bring the room together on a new level.
