I love flashes of red in artwork, especially those black and white London canvases/posters that just have a touch of red added - they are awesome. Another way to get a little bit of red into a room is - yes you've guessed it - with a throw pillow or two!
There are lots of different shades of red and these throw pillows also have different amounts of red in them. A lovely way to introduce it is by having a couple of patterned designs that use red in them and then a plain bold red cushion like the first one featured to put between them.
Let's have a look at some of the red hot cushions I've found for you here.
Red and White Patterned Throw PillowsRed and white is classic color combination and there's a reason for this - the white helps to take the overpowering nature of red down a notch so that more people can enjoy the color without feeling overwhelmed!
Let's have a look at some of the cool cushions I've selected for you in this color combination -
Black and Red Throw PillowsBlack and red can be a great color combination - there's the fun type of styles that incorporate black and red such as the Team Zombie cushion below which would be perfect for my brother's home office or a number of other zombie obsessed people's rooms. It's the type of cushion I think would look great in a dorm room or a teen's bedroom as well.
Black and red also goes well when you're talking about a classic polka dot pattern.
The thing with black is it's great for use as a defining tool which means that if you want to use a pattern that embraces lots of different shades of red in it, black is a great secondary color as it can be used to divide and define the different shades. Enjoy these next cushions -
Red, White & Black CushionsNow to really pack a punch try and combine all three colors - they look sensational! I like these next patterned throw pillows, especially the daisy one which I think would look lovely on a daybed on the verandah. The music inspired one is also beautiful and I'm sure my daughter would absolutely love it if she didn't have a purple themed room at the moment!
I have 'cheated' a little with one of these cushions as they have a pale mocha color on them as well, but this just goes to show that you can add red accessories to a neutral, mocha based color scheme and it will work wonderfully.
Red with Shades of Pink Throw Pillows
When I was growing up I remember being told that red and pink don't mix - well they weren't to know about these next fun cushions were they?
I think these two throw pillows are perfect for a teen's bedroom as it adds a touch of fun to their room and lips and hearts seem to be perennially popular with that age group!
