Colour Stories: Red

Rich pattern, on walls and windows, creates an exotic mood. Cool down the hot scarlet with subtle blocks of pink.

Mix paisley with folk prints and lush textiles for a parlour full of passion.

Mix matching crimson shades for a Punjabi Palace fit for a maharani.

Who said bathrooms have to be pastel? Shakeit up with bold walls and mismatched tiles.

Red grouting blends the hexagonal tiles in with the red painted walls above.

Enliven a Scandi setting with crimson accents– natural wood benefits from a splash of colour.

White keeps the room fresh and prevents the red from overcrowding the space.

Latticework pattern speaks to the Far East, while deep plums add a twist ofZen.

Hanging Chinese lanterns complement the wallpaper and complete the look.
