If youre looking to give your living room a new lease of life, then you may want to consider decorating your living room with a few bold red statement pieces. Here are just a few creative ways to incorporate red, into your living rooms color scheme.

Red walls

As red is such a bold color, you may want to consider limiting the use of it to one feature wall, which will be the central focus point of your living room. Leaving the remaining walls a solid neutral color, such as white, will give the illusion that your living room is larger than it is. If youd prefer to keep your walls the color they are now, consider opting for full length red drapes as an alternative.

Red seating

If one or more of your walls is red, then avoid purchasing a red couch, as you dont want to feel overwhelmed by the use of red in your living room. If you want add a hint of red to a neutral colored couch, consider placing a cosy red throw over the back of your couch or alternatively, place a couple of red cushions (of any size or shape) onto your couch. Another option is to place a single red chaise, ottoman or bean bag into your living room.

Red decorations

If you dont want to commit to painting a wall red, or purchasing red furniture you can still add a splash of red to your living room without making a long term commitment or investing a lot of money. Here are three simple ways to add color to your living room.

1. Red based floral displays

Either place flowers of your choice into a red vase or place an assortment of red flowers, such as roses or tulips into a white or glass vase. Alternatively, consider filling a aesthetically pleasing bowl with red apples, which can then be used as a center piece for your coffee table, or your dining table if you have an open plan living and dining room.

2. Red lamp or light shades

3. Red picture frames

A great way to draw attention to your favorite photographs and paintings is to hang them up inside red picture frames.

4. Red rug or throw

If youre lucky enough to have a beautiful polished wood floor, consider showcasing it by placing a simple red rug in an area that will attract attention. If you want your living room to have a modern look, then consider opting for a shaggy red carpet, while if you want your room to have an exotic look, then opt for a red based Turkish rug.

Complementary colors

Although white and red color schemes are probably the most common, there are other color combinations which are just as aesthetically pleasing. As an example, dark grey complements the use of red and is a great alternative to use of black, which paired with red makes rooms appear dark and uninviting.

Alternatively, consider pairing red pieces with dark brown pieces. As an example, red furniture or walls look great in a room with dark brown furniture or natural wooden floors.

So what are you waiting for? Red is a great choice of color to liven up your living room. Remember, you dont have to make drastic changes to give your living room a new look, even a few red pieces such as a red vase, throw and rug can give your living room a whole new lease on life.
