Red

Red

There's a reason why the eye is usually drawn to red first. It's full of excitement, passion, tenacity, flamboyance and courage. Red has a lot of attitude and makes a strong statement about your personality. While people surrounded by it may find their hearts beating a little faster or feel a little bit out of breath, a spot of red in just the right place can make a room come alive. When used with a cool blue, red's intense heat can be toned down a bit. Light pink, yellow or a gray tone can help harmonize a room that uses red.
