51 Red Living Rooms With Tips And Accessories To Help You Decorate Yours

Red really ramps up a living room decor scheme. Even a simple neutral backdrop can come alive with the introduction of red couches and a coordinated red table lamp, or a pair of red window drapes and a matching rug. Red adds a lot of visual heat, so is a particularly great option to those wanting to transform a cold looking room. This extensive gallery of 51 red living rooms is packed with inspiration on red wall colours, red living room furniture, and unique ways in which to introduce a plethora of red living room accessories that will help to balance out the scheme just right.

Create colour layers. The dark ceiling of this red and black living room evokes a cocoon-like feeling of safety, whilst everything below half height in the room radiates with the same red vibrancy. Red sofas, a red area rug, a red coffee table, and even a low slung red pendant light pull together in daring colour saturation.

Flower power and fun. This lively room scheme employs red sofas to turn up the visual heat of a plain white painted room, whilst a rainbow rug ramps up the cheer. A daisy shaped ottoman fills the room with flower power, along with petal motif side tables.

Colourful and cubist. A sharp and simplified red sofa design makes an ideal champion for the cubist decor aesthetic. Cut a feature wall into sections that can be filled with complementary accent colour, like gold, and introduce a linear modern chandelier.

Retrofit the red vibe. If you’re already decorated with neutrals but long for something more lively, fear not. Easy additions like a red feature cushion, some red wall art, and a red floral arrangement can work wonders. If budget allows, spring for an adventurous red accent chair too, it will make the colour infusions appear more permanent and intentional.

In this case, double chairs create double the impact.

Deliciously pomegranate. Red lovers looking for something on the sophisticated side will adore this rich pomegranate shade. Team with a solid stone coffee table to get the luxe look.

Step it up. Create an island for your most colourful room elements by building a platform, then wrap it with more bright flamboyance. In this room, a raw industrial backdrop creates an interesting juxtaposition for the colour crisp elements.

Slice and splice. Use contrasting wall panels and curtains to build sections of colour around the room.

Seeing triple. Not one, but three red couches round out this large living room, with a simple red runner completing a full circuit of colour on the fourth side.

Rosy and cosy. A patchwork red carpet pulls up by the modern fireplace of this home, creating a colour bridge of heat and cosiness.

Lift it with light. A ceiling stripe of red LEDs really elevates this black, white, and red living room scheme. There is also a shape theme twinned with the red elements of this room, evident in a circular feature wall treatment, round area rug, and pendant light discs.

If you are only going to do one thing to bring red into a room, a feature wall brings the biggest impact…

… Consider teasing the colour thread out a little further, with just a couple of painted panels on an adjacent wall.

A red and brown meld makes a smooth partnership. This scheme picks up the tempo with some beats of primary yellow.

There are red chairs, and then there is THIS red lounge chair. If you’re going for a hero piece then go extra special.

Work your angles. Different shades of red have been used to create this angular optical illusion on the TV wall, which gives the space added dimension.

Add a blast of blue. Red is a stong colour, but that doesn’t mean that you have to keep the rest of the room palette weak. Try adding other bold colours into the mix, like a solid cobalt blue or golden yellow–or both!

Look at Mondrian inspired interior design for colour combo insight. Note how the scheme is kept fresh with plenty of white space and sharp black linework. Max out the theme in a concept like this by choosing pendant lighting and area rugs to match.

Black linework and white space can translate into a much softer scheme too, like this half height border with black dado rail. A red persian rug expands the colour saturation across the lower half of the room. A contrasting sofa pulls out blue highlights in the carpet.

Lay out a warm welcome with red carpet. Red carpeting creates a warm base for an open and airy room. Red candles draw the warmth up to eye level when seated.

Gold standard home accessories. This round coffee table and its matching side table introduce glorious golden elements into an orange-red room. The lustre reflects the fire tones, and suggests luxury and expense.

Beautify walls with burgundy red panel molding. Even modern spaces benefit from the traditional practice of panel molding, and rich colour only amplifies the elegant effect. Be sure to place a stylish lamp nearby to light up the finished feature.

Ketchup and mustard. They work great on a hotdog and they work in decor too! Don’t be put off by the analogy, the right combination of delicious saucy red and a stripe of earthy mustard will look far more sophisticated than your local fast food joint.

Assemble a mediterannean vibe. The floral wallpaper in this red and turquoise living room is reminiscent of medditerannean tile, and even lace. The contrasting turquoise elements bring in a fresh breeze, as if from the ocean. Yellow pieces let in the sun.

Gotta love an ottoman. This tufted ottoman coffee table acts as the perfect springboard for the rest of the red elements in the room. A sea of red pattern waves around it’s base, and red wall art echoes its square outline.

A red room within a room. Designed by architect Eero Saarinen for the industrialist J. Irwin Miller, this home was the beginning of the original conversation pit trend that looks set to make a modern comeback.

  • 31 |
  • Designer: Diligence International
A smaller take on a red conversation pit, though this time with the inclusion of a stunning ceiling mount fireplace in a double height void. Black and white pillows create a layered look on the red seating.

See the world through red rose tinted glasses. Glass wall bedrooms, kitchens and even bathrooms are all the rage in interiors right now, but how about using the glass as a vessel to carry your accent colour? Transparency is maintained to leave spaces feeling larger, but the tint promotes a cosier atmosphere when closed.

Gorgeously gothic. Solid black paint walls highlighted with gilded elements and blood red couches build devilishly good looks.

  • Visualizer: Kirill Vill
Balance out equal measures and tone. The red and teal parts of this living room each cover a similar square footage, whether that be on the floor or across the walls. Each colour is a soft muted shade, with neither one overpowering the other.

  • Designer: Home D
Use colour to define zones in an open plan arrangement.

Crackle texture elevates this dark red feature wall, making it a stunning gallery space for abstract art.

This piece of red art becomes a feature wall in itself. Raw concrete makes a cool companion.

As if this chunky red tufted sofa isn’t glorious enough, this living room features a lush grass green rug to bind it with its wonderful garden view.

Read it, read it, red it. Take a regular bookcase and transform the stacks with bright red inserts.

All wired up. No need to conceal that wire with electrical trunking, go louder with bright red cables and creative pinning.

Life is peachy. Red and peach might not be the first colour combination that springs to mind, but the merge is something sweet.

Getting hot with houndstooth. Monochrome houndstooth and hot red accents are simply made for one another.

Top off your eclectic kingdom with a joyous red crown–oh, and a disco ball.

Have hope, be strong, laugh loud, and have a great big red typography wall.
