Caribbean Passion: Infusing Red into Home Design

In this final post of our spring color series, we’re showing off how red can bring some zing into your home! We’ve been sharing ideas on how to incorporate more color into the home with great design, and you can check out our yellow, orange, green and blue posts as well.

From a stunning red hibiscus flower to the glowing embers of a beach fire, the color red is all about bringing warmth into your spaces. Check out these ideas for infusing this passionate color into the home.

Starting with the most subtle way to use red, accent furniture like these bar stools will liven up your morning coffee.
Red pillows and oceanic artwork are another great accent for any room (but especially bedrooms!)
A little drama never hurt anyone! A bright red rug sets the stage for some really unique hanging beds.
Red is a nice choice for large pieces of furniture. These statement pieces anchor a room and reduce the need for lots of other decor that would compete with the vibrant hue.
Shades of red vary greatly, and a more coral tone works well in Caribbean homes. Patterns and textures help break up the intensity of the color as well.
If red furniture doesn’t suit your style, why not let your porch do the talking? A painted floor is a great conversation starter on the porch or patio.
A vibrant red vanity makes a mundane trip to the bathroom exciting.
