One of the most striking colours on the spectrum, red can transform a space and add vibrant character. View my top luxury selections for making this colour work in the home.

One of the most striking and vibrant colours in the spectrum, the colour red can completely transform an interior and give you that fun and daring space that you have been dreaming of creating. Whether you use small injections of this colour to add vibrancy and character to an interior or fill the room to create that larger than life look, there is a shade of red out there to suit every room. Bright reds can be playful, lively and modern and are best suited to creating key features to a room, deeper reds are warmer, romantic and cosy and can be used to a larger extent without overpowering a space. I have selected just a few of my favourite items available in red from some of the very best designers and companies out there. Interiors should always represent the real you, if you love the colour but have been hesitant to use it, it may be time to give it a go!
