Thinking of painting your walls red?

Red is a color that is both exciting and challenging to use in interior design.  I have seen homes where entire walls have been painted in red but complemented beautifully with dark wood running across half the wall.  It gives a sense of old school nobility and conjures images from the past.  But in cities where most of us live in small apartment spaces, painting walls red is only going to make the space look cramped.  One way out would be to paint a single wall red, like a feature wall, which can be used to showcase art & decor objects.  The red wall draws the eyes of the viewer but lets the rest of the space breathe.  Here are some great ideas to painting your wall / walls red.  Have you painted a wall red?  Send us a picture and we might feature it on our blog!
