The main colors that go with red

There are several shades of red to explore in the decor. They all bring an air of passion, positive energy and joy to the environment. Below, check out a chart with the most popular colors that combine and highlight the vibrant red:

  • Black: it’s not for nothing that the jargon “pretinho basic” is used in all segments – it goes with everything. Whether for classic, vintage or modern decor, black and red form an impactful and timeless team.
  • White: the sobriety of white is responsible for offering balance to the decor. Thus, its presence, in addition to supercombining with red, allows the addition of other colors. Even a minimalist decor gains a unique identity in this wedding.
  • Grey: like white, gray is a neutral color that guarantees stability to the environment. Another perfect option to emphasize red, as well as add other colors.
  • Wood: the marriage between red and wood is a perfect union that allows many combinations. For example, to bet on the industrial style, just include black and gray in the card, and the explosion of personality is guaranteed.
  • Golden: red and gold bring a refined atmosphere to the decor, ideal for classic environments. Together, the two colors combine with the dark green and leave the environment with a London touch.
  • Blue: the contemporary decor relies heavily on the presence of red and blue, forming the navy style. This is ideal for a bedroom, a home office and even for kitchen decor.
  • Green: for those who are not afraid to dare in combinations, red and different variations of green can create a unique look. In woodworking, the two colors make the space fun and current.

Playing with color combinations is always a great resource to add identity to the decor. Red, regardless of the dosage used, will guarantee a space full of energy and creativity.
