Walk into the deep hue of a desert sand, the brightness of a fire, the taste of a sweet strawberry, or the heat of a dried pepper. If you’re thinking red, you’re spot on. Red is bold, fierce, daring, and inviting–and today we’re putting it in your dining room – Red Dining Room Walls

Red is a stimulating color that reflects courage and bold determination. A dining room is a great place to feature some dramatic red hues.
