Billy Beson says, "Harness the attention-getting
power of red in your home with these tips:
A good way to find a red paint you can live with is
to choose a red in a fabric, rug, wallpaper, artwork
or even from nature, and match it. Always try out
several shades of red paint on the wall first, and view at
different times of day, including nighttime.
Red looks fabulous with black and white. Pair it
with charcoal sketches in silver frames, hounds tooth
check or gray flannel stripes.
Don't overdo a good thing. Red needs to be tempered
with neutrals such as white, cream, camel or silvery gray.
If you have red walls in a room, keep furnishings neutral.
Red works well with nearly all woods, metals, and
I love red this time of year.
