Red Throw Pillows & Decorative Pillows

Color of Passion & Love: Red Throw Pillows

Red is one of the most sought after colors in throw pillows. There aren't many colors that are described as emotionally stimulating, intense, and passionate as the color red. Red's rich hue can stand out on its own or marry a room together with its depth and diversity of shades. What better way to bring fresh styling to a space than to add lovely red throw pillows! The opportunities to use this number one color obsession on pillows are endless. Whether you choose a funky pattern lipstick red pillow for a clean modern room, or a brick red jacquard throw pillow in a traditional or formal living area, the love and passion of red is unanimous and undeniably stunning.

Go Modern with Decorative Red Throw Pillows

Decorating a room with red pillows implies confidence and boldness. Bringing red decorative pillows into modern spaces is easy if you remember to make it simple. In mid-century modern design there is a focus on clean lines and smooth-edged furnishings, which are retro and minimalistic. A great red modern print or graphic pillow can bring a pop of interest without cluttering up a space. Choose classic square throw pillows or sunburst round pillow styles in modern spaces. Select geometric patterns to really showcase a sofa set, chair, or window seat - especially in daring red. The color red will instantly warm up and intensify a room.

Go Global with Decorative Red Throw Pillows

There is a definite trend in fabrics that leans toward global and ethnic designs. These are stunning and certainly the best way to introduce a cool and unique textile to the home. Asian, Indian, and African tribal noted textiles are daring and bold - especially made in red, the color of love!

Robert Allen Rajita Tiger Persimmon is a global and stunning 100% cotton fabric with a bright red background behind leaping tigers in gray and black. This would be a perfect addition to dens, children's bedrooms, and guest rooms. Whether you have a need for flange, bolster, or lumbar pillows, red decorative throw pillows made with culturally stimulating designs like this will wake up a space and transport you to another land!

Go Traditional with Decorative Red Throw Pillows

In a traditional setting, you can choose a red fabric that is more saturated and deeper in hue on textiles such as raised velvets, silks, heavy wool, and ornate jacquards, which are time honored and classic in interior spaces. The more patterned combinations with classic red pillows, the better. Specialty pillows like flange, shirred ended bolster, and duvet are perfect in more traditional bedrooms and family rooms. Remember that the color red says a lot about your personality, too. It implies power, love, and passion when placed as accessories in a living area, so the lover of red is definitely a person that is not afraid to show boldness, courage and confidence!

Inspiring Color Combinations for Red Throw Pillows

Red and Fuschia Combinations

Decorative Red Throw Pillows

Red and fuschia may seem too close on the color wheel, but it's actually a good thing! This color combination is called analogous. Analogous color schemes use color palettes that are close or sometimes right next to each other on the color wheel. These colors go well together because they provide an easy transition on the eyes in a space, which makes it tranquil and composed. This pillow trio definitely is harmonious!

Red, White, and Blue Combinations

Americana color combinations are built on three colors - red, white, and blue. Clearly, this trio is a real beauty in rooms that are looking to create a traditional love of country without being too deliberate. Vintage red decorative pillows will look perfect in more rustic and country cottage styled rooms, as well.

Don't forget about children's rooms! Red fabric will work as a great base color on bedding, draperies, and pillows. Highland Taylor Wagalot Red is an adorable example of how even novelty fabrics can play into good design. The combination of plaid (Robert Allen Boxy Zig Driftwood), coordinating pattern (Highland Taylor Diamond Girl Blue), neutral (Highland Taylor Pacific Cloud) and solid (Robert Allen Success Cadet) just proves that even a young boy's room can look sophisticated.

Add Red Throw Pillows Outdoors

Red fabrics always go well with a classic nautical styling. Outdoor red fabrics on a pair of Para Tempotest Home Canvas Cherry pillows looks delightful on outdoor chairs. There are tons of hardy outdoor fabrics to choose from that will not only give your outdoor gazebo, patio, or pool area a new look, but will outshine the elements and stay beautiful for years without fading.
