Red is said to be great for living and eating areas; that it encourages energetic conversation and healthy appetites (think classic red and white checked picnic and table cloths), but not so great for children's bedrooms. It's true that at the end of a long day after a nice dinner and bath it would be extremely undesirable to find the wee one suddenly become chatty and hungry.

Perhaps for lovers of red the answer lies in the accent solution. A dollop of crimson against an ivory or cream backdrop can add just the right amount of energy and playfulness without being overpowering. Add a touch of blue to the mix and you've got an ice to match your fire; a serene element to balance the bold.

  1. Red is my color... I have it in every room in our house- including Stella's room. I find at least one little think in red. Red makes me happy and I feel like its a good energy flowing through the house. Did I mention we painted our front door red too?
