Hmmmm! So how do we use it in our homes? Lets start with the first room you are likely to enter when you wake up.
you have a neutral colored
towels and curtains would be a great "waker-upper."|
Or you could pull out all the stops and paint the walls red. The brighter the more awakening.
The use of just the right amount of red in a kitchen can make it peppy. Don't overdo it.
Use a splash of red here and there in an otherwis neutral room to add energy
Red is said to stimulate the appetite making it a good choice for the dining room. Again, use accent pieces such as a red table cloth and bits of red in white curtains and/or wall décor. Or, as in the image below, neutral walls an d wall decor with red china and red chairs.
I would suggest a warmer shade of red for the living room in order to provide a more restful atmosphere. The warmer shade is obtained by adding orange to bright red.
Red is not recommended for the bedroom of an overactive child because of its stimulating properties
For most children just a neutral background with only accents of a warmer red are recommended
Red, being a symbol of love, is often the choice while others believe that red is too stimulating for the bedroom. If you like the color red why not go ahead and use it. If you are in the bedroom only at after dark you will see the room by lamplight thus the colors are muted.
Goodnight. Sweet Dreams
