Red is a powerful and daring colour choice for a room and offers countless possibilities. Whether you want a room to be dramatic, classy, fun, passionate, warm or exciting – choosing to decorate with red is a great place to start.
Although it may be a little too much for people who prefer softer colours, red is a popular choice for many designers and celebrities. Bibi Monnahan, Brian McCarthy and Miles Redd, are just a few decorators who enjoy dabbling with red and exploring the colour’s possibilities.
Miles Redd has built a famed career designing interiors for a range of venues and has been creative director of Oscar de la Renta Home since 2003. Redd is well known for his use of bold colours and unique aesthetics, and has a particular appreciation for the colour red.
” I think it was the French decorator Vincent Fourcade who said that every room needs a little red,” he says “Otherwise it’s like a woman without lipstick. ”
