HomeDecor :: Decorating With Red

Saturday, January 03, 2015



On a cold, rainy grey saturday morning in Delhi...looking for some warmth with my hot cup of tea, i stumbled upon these images...

Red is the color of extremes. It’s the color of passionate love, seduction, violence, danger, anger, and adventure. Our prehistoric ancestors saw red as the color of fire and blood – energy and primal life forces – and most of red’s symbolism today arises from its powerful associations in the past.
Red is also a magical and religious color. It symbolized super-human heroism to the Greeks and is the color of the Christian crucifixion. Red was almost as rare and as expensive as purple in ancient days – a fact that may explain its magic and power. Paradoxically, today’s intense red dyes come from crushed insects (the lac beetle and the cochineal).





Whether it’s used to put a room on high alert with a bright shade of scarlet or to envelop visitors with a cozy, warm glow, red is a favorite color choice of designers looking to make a statement. Full of drama and passion, it’s not a color for the faint of heart, but when thoughtfully used—whether on a wall or in a handful of accessories—it can make a room come alive.
