The experts already were way ahead of this announcement and started to declare red as the new ‘millennial pink‘ over the summer months….
Red is a great next step from millennial pink….it is bold, a little unexpected in certain places (a red kitchen island….) . It can add a lot of richness to an exterior. It can be both feminine and masculine depend on how you use it in your space.
How to decorate with the colour of the year…
This colour is so versatile … you can add this colour in a modern space that needs a colour injection but you can also make this work in a country or nautical inspired theme. A Persian rug in this rich hue is another way to add this tone and some sophistication into any space.
This boho inspired room is so relaxed and the red makes a statement without taking over the space. this room really combines a mix of styles like modern and traditional along with some great texture.
Alright this is for someone who is really looking to e bold in their home decor. A red sofa makes a statement but if you love colour…why not go bold? Red is a great colour for a major piece of furniture like a sofa because it really does work with a lot of other colours…
