Your bedroom is your sanctuary, and you spend a lot of time in it. The colors you use in your bedroom should be reflective of your style and character.
Although red and black may not seem like a great place to start, and you may dismiss the two for their overpowering characteristics, you can make quite a statement with them, if you tread with caution and keep just one thing in mind – moderation.
Red and black happen to be powerful colors in their own right and combining them needs a bit of planning. Too much black and you risk creating a depressing setting.
Go overboard on red and you end up with a bedroom too spicy for peaceful slumber. The trick is to have both balance each other out in just the right doses.
Let’s have a look at a few stunning bedroom ideas which boast of both glamour and subtlety, all at the same time.
If you want to make a statement, by painting the walls red, make sure you use enough neutral tones like black and beige to keep things light and casual.
Here’s a tip on creating a red and black bedroom that’s easy on the eyes. Just use a neutral shade like white, beige or grey to tone down the impact that black and red make together, and limit the red color to mere accents dotting the décor. Using as little red as possible energizes a room without going over-the-top.
Red and black can be used as an accent in an otherwise neutral setting, to add glamour and character instantly. The black draws you in, while the red amps up the excitement. And the neutral shades in the décor keep things from going over-the-top.
Red and black is a perfect color combination if you intend to infuse a room with personality and add some drama, especially when it’s a bedroom that you’re decorating.
But it is important to tone down the heat by using grey, white or their variants around the room.
