Red got nixed off of my favorite color list a long time ago. I started gravitating towards softer, more neutral tones. But I kept coming back to these beautiful spaces. Although you do have the harsh pop of red, the other tones balance it out. If you want to showcase a particular color, choose an odd number of places to put it. Make sure it's even and balanced across the space. You want your guests to feel comfortable, so don't overdo it. And remember, the eye will go to the brightest color in a room immediately. Loud colors really can liven up a space and communicate a more cheerful tone.
