FIRE UP your Designs with a Modern Take on Red!

Apr 16, 2021 | Tips


Think red walls are outdated? Not with a few twists on the shade.

As the cold, cloudy days of winter come to an end, we look ahead to warmer months that bring with them a welcome dash of colour! Bright, bold hues give us an energy boost – like a B12 shot of colour!

One of the trending colors for this spring is Fandango (C2-527). This energizing soft, orangey-red is connected to the Root Chakra and infused with positive, motivating energy (which we all could use right now)! It’s lively enough to revitalize us into mindful motion but also remains solid and grounding. Since all C2 Paint colors are full-spectrum, they each have an inherently harmonizing nature.

Fandango, inspired by the lively Spanish dance, is a modern colour that leans toward Vermillion, bordering between orange, coral and intense salmon pink. So, for those of us who squirm away from the classic reds, you can now take this opportunity to fire things up in a contemporary way.

This nuanced shade is incredibly versatile, from the classic red, white and blue combinations to a modern take on traditional Asian-influenced inspirations.

Adding a high gloss finish to walls and furniture instantly creates a feisty, creative look.

For those dipping their toe into the world of colour with trepidation, try Fandango or other bold colors in smaller measures like behind an open bookcase.

Designer Tip: If you’re adding color to a bookcase, keep a mindful eye to colour with the books and objects you stage with. Colour blocking with cyan and aqua and even a peachy pink looks incredible with orange or red; or go for high definition contrasts with all white, cream, and black. Ceramics with modern block prints and a few succulents or other greenery can complete the look.
