Red is my favorite color. I absolutely love it as an accent (or even the feature color) in a room’s color palette. In fact, if you ever take a sneak peak into my apartment, you’ll find that red is the dominant accent in our home (we even have a Clifford red couch that dominates our living room!). So when I came across Home-Designing’s post about the red-white color combination, I had to do a post of my own about my favorite red and white living room designs.
The red and white color combination provides a great contrast for interior design enthusiasts. The neutral, peaceful ambiance of the white balances out with the bold, demanding red. Throw in grays, blacks, or blues, and you’ve got a great palette for your living room! The red and white living room designs I found don’t always use red or white as the dominate color; sometimes, they’re more accent colors than anything. But check out these awesome designs (which range from contemporary and modern to transitional and eclectic), and find your favorite living room!
