Red is back with a bang and this time it’s gone bold. Expect to see this vibrant hue across the catwalk and in home interiors. A perfect accompaniment to a monochrome scheme, it can be paired with deep oranges for a retro feel, or with dark woods and bold patterns for a timeless and statement, look.
The new tartan
Gleneagles Pattern Carpet
Deep red walls and a patterned carpet? It sounds ambitious, but if your room has high ceilings and/or plenty of natural light coming through, it really does work. Accessorised with black and white prints, a grey bed and minimal furniture, it’s traditional-meets-modern for 2018.
The red carpet edit
Revolution Twist Carpet in Claret
Zesty oranges and deep, rich reds just work together so well. We love this perfect mix of red, orange and white — the white stops the room from looking or feeling too small. Finish the scheme with bold, modern artwork and sleek furniture for a modern-retro look.
Kahrs Classic Oak Nouveau Charcoal Wood Flooring
A deeper shade of red lends itself perfectly to rooms with timeless, dark wooden floors. With traditional furniture, a dramatic statement wall mural and an abundance of florals, this romantic and distinctive look isn’t one for wallflowers (excuse the pun).
True Colours UNI 518 Vinyl Flooring
Breathe new life into your kitchen/diner with a dynamic red floor that blends effortlessly with sleek grey cabinets and crisp white walls. An easy way to add a bit of flair and character to any room, this striking vinyl looks great whether you’re going for a retro revival look or an industrial-chic vibe. Fun wall stickers are also a quick and easy way to give your room an instant refresh.
Rug shown is the Villa Bright Floral Rug
Enhance your décor with an unapologetic, statement-making rug. Rugs truly can transform any space, whether they’re covering up old floorboards or complementing your colour scheme. We love the clash of oversized florals and vivacious furniture in this shot — who would have thought such a simple purchase could add so much to a room?
