REDS the passion colors... Reds are powerful colors and full of drama and passion. Artistica's red tone accessories make great accent items as you'll get a lot of drama from it. A close companion to brown, red represents the core of earthy tonality and rustic textures. In a formal room, use a deep, dark red, such as burgundy, accessories to compliment the dark woods in the room. Whether it’s used to put a room on high alert with a bright shade of scarlet or to envelop visitors with a cozy, warm glow, red is a favorite color choice of designers looking to make a statement.
