Brighten Up Your World With a Red Comforter Set
Color plays a significant role in society and has for centuries. Not only are certain shades used to alert people to danger, but color also affects people’s moods, thoughts, and feelings. While certain colors arouse feelings of alertness or intrigue, others fill people with calm, relaxation, and even serenity. And nowhere is color more important than in the bedroom, where we spend an average of seven to nine hours a day. If your room and bedding colors fail to spark joy or prevent you from sleeping well, there’s a good chance you’ll suffer a lack of motivation and not perform as well at activities like work and school. On the other hand, selecting inspiring shades can influence your mood for the better, ensuring you walk out the door each day feeling rested and recharged. At Latest Bedding, we’re passionate about helping families create affordable, eye-catching bedrooms that marry form and function. Check out these tips for brightening up your bedroom and your world with a bold red comforter set.
Why Bedding Color Matters
Red might not be the most commonly used color in the bedroom. After all, most people opt for neutrals like white, ivory, tan, and grey or more frequently chosen hues like blue or yellow. However, there are plenty of reasons to incorporate this bold and bright shade into the space. Long associated with passion and love, red is also associated with feelings like energy, adventure, excitement, and optimism. And who couldn’t use some more of that these days?
When selecting new bedding, it’s worth considering red over more traditional options. Dramatic and unexpected, a red luxury comforter set can be just the thing to give your room a fresh feel and separate it from the pack. On the other hand, if you opt for neutral bedding, adding some red accent pillows, curtains, or throw blankets can help make your space pop. The trick is to find ways to style your red bedding so it’s sophisticated, attractive, and reflective of your unique taste and style.
How to Style a Red Comforter
Red is a fun, passionate shade that can add some serious heat to your bedroom. However, using this color incorrectly can yield results that are less than favorable. So how do you style your red comforter set to its best advantage? Check out these tips courtesy of our design team.
Think Beyond White Sheets
Wondering what sheet shade to pair with your new red comforter? While most people default to white and ivory linens, we recommend looking beyond the obvious to find something exceptional. If you want your bedroom to feel romantic, blush pink sheets can soften up your style. On the other hand, you can create contrast by opting for sheets in sky blue or teal. These shades create a pleasantly calming effect that inspires you to rest easy. For best results, add a selection of accent pillows that bring together the shade of your comforter and the shade of your sheets.
Add Exciting Accents
Speaking of accents, home decorators shouldn’t be afraid to look for pieces that bring a bit of drama. For example, black is a bold color that looks lovely when paired with red. Tie it all together with some additional bedding pieces in shades of grey.
Go Bold With Paint
When styling your red comforter set, it pays to consider the color of your walls as well. While we aren’t advising you to paint your entire room red, though that’s certainly an option, a well-placed accent wall in crimson or scarlet can go a long way toward making your room shine. We also love the way removable wallpaper adds interest and drama to a room, particularly when placed behind a bold brass or leather headboard.
Play With Patterns
Speaking of patterns, an interesting print can take your bedroom to the next level. Add interest in the form of curtains, accent pillows, bedskirts, and even area rugs. Have a red pattern you love? Take the bedding article to the paint store and ask them to incorporate the shade of red into your paint.
Make Red Your Neutral
Red is not generally considered a neutral color. However, some savvy designers opt to use it as a neutral in the bedroom. To achieve this effect, opt for a softer shade like burnt red or rust. Then pair it with complementary shades like white, ivory, soft peach, and even sage. Natural woods and real or silk plants help complete the look.
Embrace the Dark Side
Stark shades of red aren’t your only choice for decorating with this bold hue. If you love the idea of a red bedroom but want a more sophisticated palette, we recommend leaning away from colors like fire engine and cherry red and opting for burgundy or maroon. Smart and sophisticated, these shades are sure to bring a smile to your face.
