NOTHING ADDS POW TO PASADENA LIKE A RED CARPET

Bring On The Crimson

Think of red carpet and it immediately conjures up images of royalty and celebrities at awards events. What would the Oscars be without the red carpet? Believe it or not the red carpet goes back centuries and was first mentioned in the play Agamemnon by Aeschylus, written in 458 BC. Agamemnon’s wife, Clytemnestra lays out a red path for him to walk on on his return from Troy. She turned out to be quite treacherous but that’s another story. 

You can feel like a star in your own home by adding red carpet somewhere in your decor. You will need a carpet layer for wall to wall but rugs can be even more effective and easily changed. Here are some ideas from Pasadena interior designers to make red rule.

TRADITIONAL

Red is frequently used by interior designers in traditional living rooms, particularly with gold and wood. The impression created is one of sumptuous luxury.

DRAMA

Pur red with black and you immediately create drama. Interior designers favor this color combination to create a more masculine ambience. Try putting a red rug under a black dining table and it will instantly become the star of the room.

DEFINES A SPACE

A red carpet anchors groups of furniture. This is very helpful in large, open plan rooms that can otherwise be a challenge for interior designers to make cozy.

RED FEELS LIKE FIRE

In a living room that has no fireplace, a red rug can add instant warmth and focus. In our photo, the red rug is a bold and interesting contrast to the beige and wood.

DON’T FORGET ACCESSORIES

Interior designers suggest using red in some of your decor accessories, drapes and pillows to link your red design together.

HEARTS AND FLOWERS

Nothing suggest romance and passion in the master bedroom more than red. This is not for everyone but Pasadena interior designers suggest that the bedroom is where you can be a little more adventurous since it is more private. Stay beige in the living room, and live it up in the bedroom.

When planning your home renovation, ask your Pasadena interior designer how to add a little red pizzazz.  Roll out the red carpet and feel like a movie star every day.
