The color red is associated with so many things that many people fear to place it as main element of the elements of their house. A clear example, is that anyone could think that have too much christmas esence, a color made only for lovers or that its attributes could be not combine with almost anything, but it is not. Red is those colors that no matter where are but with what else connects … or combines.
Of course, the red color is not for everyone, it is for anyone who wants it. In principle it is close to those people who want to be in constant dynamism. The red not only arousing our passion.
In some cases, let’s say for the most part, the red color is used in places like the dining room or the kitchen because one of its main effects is to urge the hunger. From there may come that myth: the love enters through the mouth.
All roads lead to red
As we all know the colors directly influence our mood. Obviously we have to be assertive in the color that we will choose in our house because it will determine our attitude throughout the day, not a single day but the time that we keep it in our sight.
Basically there are three main principal properties that can make us decant for a color that many fear to place as the main reference of their homes.
The first one is that it stimulates our body. Being repetitive, the body is activated with certain impulses of light that vary depending on its wavelength and its level of vibration. Red is a color that has the largest wave and therefore affects our body more intensely by activating its sensors.
Having the largest wave capacity, depending on the tonality in which it is chosen, red is a color that tends to be luminous because it absorbs the light rays that affect it. When you choose intense tones, such as vermilion or garnet, space will intensify its light.
On the other hand, when a red is chosen from the terracotta family, calm usually occur. This tonality is very frequent to find them in the nature so it is a very good option for rustic places.
Finally, is warm and sensual, like anything, depending on its intensity this color will reflect an action of corporal behavior that could be the key point that many were looking for in their relationship.
However, you have to be very careful, it is not recommended for very small rooms because it disturbs.
The stimulating effects of red are destined to be located in rooms where the main atributte is the dynamism: the bathroom, the kitchen or the living room. However, the bedroom is not ruled out if, in a given case, a soft tone is chosen.
What colors to combine?
As we said before, what is relevant about red is the connection it has with other elements.
A classic pattern is usually combined with white. There the red color stands out by contrast and is made subtle giving to any place optimum dynamism.
By default red is a color that can be found in nature, it is not uncommon that we can see its combination with many brown tones or wooden furniture.
For the people more risky, through combining with shades such as black or gray, it is usually produces an ideal result only if have an ideal light.
Red gives for everything. Whether in furniture, walls or objects of decoration gives a certain elegance with dynamism especially if we know how to choose your partner well.
