From raspberry and ruby to garnet and aubergine, the warmth and intensity of blue-based berry reds have a dramatic effect.
Drench your interiors with a succulent red that adds depth while exuding decadence and luxe living. Just take a look at the lacquer library renowned designer Miles Redd created. Choosing the right sheen will enhance a color, and in this instance, all the theatrics are out on display.
From pops of vibrant fuchsia to subtle strokes of deep cranberry, the different shades of this rich, saturated hue works well with a variety of ambiences. As for textiles, lush cut velvets set a sensual tone while light-weight ikats impart a playful sophistication.
This sumptuous color pairs nicely with complementary greens such as emerald and peridot. But to really indulge the senses, incorporate a rich dark chocolate into the space. It will leave your mouth watering.
