I started off with my home office done in Chinese Red.
all else was dark walnut with accents of olive green sofa etc.
Not to mention it was a true 'HUNT' room with huge fine oils of hunt scenes.
The riders wear red jacket...
they are leaping through the green forest....
you get the idea.
Besides this room being my office-
it was my favorite place to lock myself away in to watch a movie
I would fall asleep immediately.
I love that room.
Dare I say what plain GENIUS red is with Zebra?
Love this one....
see the meander-greek key border ?

There is a certain coziness that red can give you over all other
I do consider it a High Brow gutsy NEUTRAL because
it is fabulous with golds, deep blues, creams, blacks, even dark dark shades of brown.
And of course....never forget green.
It can certainly be funky!
I am not opposed to a red kitchen either....
mixed with gold/yellow, black & cream.
These cabinets are a happy change from what is it out in the design scene at the moment.
Would you try just one red room to start ???
I did, and I ended up with two.
...LOVE THEM BOTH!!!
