Red and black rooms
Like any color, the first thing to define is how it will be applied. Many choose to overload the spaces, betting on various shades of red, using it in absolutely everything, from walls, to furniture, decorations and rugs.
Others, however, believe that intense colors should be well managed, placed in strategic points where they attract attention and then decorate the rest of the room based on them. The black color applied in some details, along with red, can look very elegant and sophisticated.
The reality is that red has many facets that we may not be aware of, as is the case with the darkest red, which far from being overwhelming to the eye, turns out to dull the space a bit, giving it a dramatic and mystical tint at the same time.

That’s why when you want to use strong red, preferably temper it with black.
