Red paint is confident and charismatic, or rich and sensuous. A statement color, red is a vivid choice to liven up an entry or add playfulness to a kids’ room. Red can also be understated, providing a muted quality that brings depth to the walls of an elegant living room or dining room. Red paint pairs well with a range of neutrals, providing striking options for trim and wainscoting. When using a high sheen, red delivers high drama and elegance.
