Brick red gingham furniture paired with floral fabric and soft yellow walls give this living room a fresh cottage feel. The primary color palette of reds, yellows, and antique blues suits a casual style and offers a warm counterpoint to the stone floors.
Pulling it together
Tie a large space together around the powerful color of red. Placing three oversize sofas around a bold red rug makes this spacious living room feel more intimate. Orange accents in draperies and throw pillows complement the rug's deep red shade.
A little pattern goes a long way in a brick red color. The red-and-cream geometric pattern uses a little red in a big way to create the feeling of warmth and togetherness throughout this large living room. The pattern repeats in the accent pillows on the sofa to connect the two furniture pieces and pull the overall room design together.
Red Face Brick
Play off the natural beauty of a brick fireplace by incorporating shades of red into the colors of a living room. The color combination of the fireplace with the white and red bricks makes a perfect palette. Natural wood accents and neutral furnishings let the bold color choices shine.
Bring a living room together around a bold red-print area rug. Keep the rest of the room neutral so the attention stays on the rug. Add small accents in the same hue around the room to tie the look together.
