An excellent way to keep a deep, rich look without sacrificing light is to choose saturated shades of red then tone them down with an organic texture and a light accent color. Here, the cranberry grass-cloth walls infuse the room with much-needed color, keeping it bright with an all-natural appeal. Alternatively, the cool, blue-gray accents add contrast.

This light and bright living room features a brown velvet sectional and red circular positioned in front of a blue accent wall. A black arc lamp illuminates the space, while the fireplace has a floor-to-ceiling bookshelf on either side. Hardwood floors and a potted tree provide finishing touches.
Boy's Red and White LEGO-Themed Bedroom With Play Table
This boy's red and white bedroom was designed to match his love of LEGO bricks. It includes a red and white striped area rug with matching cornice, a white window seat with cabinet storage, a clear acrylic play table, a blue and white striped bed with custom pillows, and a creative bundle hanglamp pendant light that looks a group of light bulbs suspended from red strings.
