I have always loved rooms with white walls and bold colors everywhere else. This room is quite large, and we needed something with real impact to fill the space. The red sofa seemed like just the ticket.
Colors used in my room:
Red, Gray, Black, White, Blue
Tips for using color successfully:
Don't be afraid to go with something big and bold. If you love a certain color, give it a try. More than likely you will be glad that you did, and if you end up not liking it, well -- it's changeable.
