Bedrooms are sanctuaries as well as sleeping places, and the color scheme of your bedroom can have an impact on how much time you enjoy spending in your room. The color red mixes well with almost any color scheme for your bedroom. A red bedroom can make a romantic atmosphere or make a bold statement on your bedroom. If you already have red bedroom walls, then you need to decorate your red bedroom without going overboard. Here are several ideas to decorate your red bedroom. The shade of red makes a big difference in decor choices. A deep Etruscan red with a lot of brown in it works with traditional decor, lots of wood furniture and offsetting touches of cream. Cherry red is pretty rococo, but it’s Pop Art as well. With cherry, you could luxuriate in yards of velvet and embroidered damasks or opt for chrome, glass and gleaming white ceilings. Reds, like true scarlet and red-orange, that lack an undertone of blue, are sunnier and produce a cheerful room when paired with the right fabrics, curtains and carpet.
Or you can use a weathered barn-wood headboard, attached directly to the red bedroom wall over a platform bed, turns your former contemporary decor country. Place a reclaimed flea market dresser, distressed and painted with cream-colored milk paint, against one red wall. Make the bed a cool oasis with pale ice-blue sheets and pillowcases and add a homey touch with a patchwork quilt.
