Crimson Pride

Many people love red and want to reflect that in their homes, but when overdone, red can be a little unsightly. Embrace red and add it to your space in splashes- through accessories and varying hues! According to the Principles of Feng Shui, red is the energy of arousal. It's hot, passionate, rich and celebratory. Red is the Chinese color of luck and happiness, the marriage color in India, and the symbolic color of love and romance, courage and passion in Western societies.
In feng shui color decorating, red always signifies luxury and richness. However, if used too much, it can bring about restlessness, bursts of anger, and rage as it is an element of fire and very intense.

Above are some ways to incorporate red into your decor, along with compliments like black- an element of water, representing strength, power, protection, stability, and sophistication.
