Just add red
Thomas J. Story

Just add red

The showstopper: One wall of poppy red wallpaper is all it takes to bring life and energy to this dining nook. Red is strong enough that patterns work better than solids. The lantern, pillows, and art pick up on the hue in delicate ways.

The tamer: A complementary wall of greige (a mix of gray and beige resulting in a warm, muddy tone) grounds the red and acts as a neutral without being recessive.

The accent: Cushions in shaded seaglass green are a cool complement to the red and share tonal value with the greige.
