Turn up the colour thermometer at home with eye-popping red! Dramatic and strong, red calls for attention and infuses a space with life and energy. But don't go overboard! Painting all the walls in a room this colour is often overwhelming. An accent wall and a few well-selected accessories are often enough to make a statement. Let these red interiors from Houzz be your inspiration for a lovely Valentine's Day!
