Tips For Using Color

Transform your interiors with gorgeous red influences:

Red is one of those colors that grabs attention instantly and doesn’t let go! When paired with white, blue, and clever neutrals, there's no stopping the creativity of wall lighting you can have. Blown glass and red inspired wall sconces are a great way to add color to your room without having to change out your entire decor.

Remember, wall lighting doesn’t have to be restricted to vertical walls, how about adding ambient lighting like this kitchen ceiling application from Isabel Bettie. This clever use of red light brings the artwork, cabinetry, and finishes together beautifully.
