With a great comeback of color in interior design, we find ourselves ready to experiment with bold hues and more complex color schemes. The Millennial pink craze of recent years is gradually fading away, leaving space for more sophisticated and strong colors to emerge. Pinks are maturing and taking on a spicy coat to become terracotta, sienna, burnt orange, burgundy, deep red, primary red, reddish brown and soft red with a yellow glow.

Terracotta, rust and other earthy shades are driving color direction towards a new decade when we will be reinventing the way we live in our homes. Causing an impact on every aspect of design, new reds are breathing life into our interiors and bridging the gap between the ‘70s nostalgia and modern, futuristic design.

We are seeing new reds popping up in both accessories and on a larger scale, so don’t be surprised if you spot an increasing number of tone-on-tone rooms featuring some of the new reds. Tonal spaces usually feature different shades within the same color family, spiced up with some fun pops of orange, mint, pink and yellow, but also warm metallics and warm neutrals.

Matt color finishes are currently very popular, but the glossy textures are expected to arise in the years to come. Until this happens, use golden finishes to provide interest and introduce a luxe vibe into the space. 

Encouraging us to take risks with style and patterns, new reds are leading the way into a color revolution. Rich, alluring reds can be a powerful tool for interior designers, but keep in mind to balance them properly. Some of the best practices suggest pairing bold reds with white, grey or any other neutral to calm them down a bit and create a more soothing environment.

But if you prefer muted reds over their exotic counterparts, your options are almost endless. Muted reds are such a breeze to decorate with and always make a big statement without being so over your face.

Similar to last year, the new reds had a prominent role at Milan Design Week 2019 suggesting an exciting future for interior design color schemes. Dynamic and passionate, these fiery reds are energizing and fearless, and they are becoming warmer and more vibrant with each passing season.

Are we going to get used to this bold interior color trend or will it remain only a hero of the commercial styling sets?
