Brace your eyes because this month’s color crush is electric red! While this color is not for the faint of heart, it’s one that looks amazing in decor when paired correctly. Not sure how to do that? Don’t worry– I’m here to help! Here’s a bit more about this bold color and a few tips for how you can bring it home.
Color: Electric Red
Pair it With: When it comes to pairings, I think you have two options: to pair with a pastel and let the red pop. Or you can pair with an equally as bold color for a statement. This shade of red + a pastel pink may just be one of my favorite color pairings outside of yellow and pink. Plus electric red and mint green is a fun take on traditional Christmas colors if you’re looking to mix things up with your holiday decor. You can also see in the photos above that mixing pinks + electric red + bright blue together is a winning combo!
Why it’s Crush-Worthy: Electric red is just that… electric! It’s bold, it’s bright, and it makes a statement. You don’t need to use a lot of it to really feel the impact of the color. It’s definitely the happiest shade of red (to me at least). It not only works in fashion, but it can easily be part of your home decor.
How to Bring it Home: I love the idea of using this color to paint accents in your home (think the framing of a door, a shape detail, like an arch, on the wall, etc). This is also a great color for smaller furniture pieces, like this desk chair for example. Red works best in rooms where you want to feel awake, so I would stick to home offices, living room, and kitchen, though an electric red wallpaper would be amazing in a bathroom if done right. Pillows make for a great accent as well.
