Do you love the look of Global Style Design? It is filled with rich colors, exotic designs, and hand-made works of art that bring the beauty of different cultures to life in your space.
Is red your favorite color?
Red is often associated with love, passion, fire and heat, strength, power, courage, vibrant energy, and excitement.
Red can be dramatic when used in your décor.
Like all colors, red means different things in different cultures. Often, when you see red as a color in a country’s flag, it is often an important color in that culture.
One thing is for sure. Red is not a boring color and can make a dramatic statement. Be bold and use it as your primary color or as an accent.
Get the Look with a Great Red Paint Color
Get the look of various global styles with a great red paint color combined with global style rugs, pillows, art, and lighting. See examples of some of my Edesigns below. I share some of the products I used to help you get the look. Most contain affiliate links, meaning I make a small commission if you buy something for sharing with you at no additional cost to you.

Shades of red are often used in Turkish-style designs.
Shades of Red in Modern Global Styles
Modern global styles are clean and uncluttered, with more straight lines but mixed with patterns and textures from a variety of countries in the rugs, pillows and often the art.
Notice how the same room looks very different by using different shades of red for the wall color.
See how the whole look changes by changing the paint color and trying a different shade of red.
Or change the look by changing your art, as in my Edesign below highlighting a beautiful painting by artist Brooke Harker, called All Roads Lead. See or purchase her work on her website. This is an example of one of her cityscapes that she loves to paint, recording the connections between people as witnesses in a moment.
Here is another example using a shade of red, Passionate by Sherwin Williams on the walls while also using red accents in the rug, pillows, and furnishings. Softer shades of reds and pinks are more relaxing for use in bedrooms.

I love the energy red brings to a room, even though I am a blue-green girl at heart :). The room, the house, and the preferences of the occupants always set the color story for me.
Thanks, so true. So many things to consider, but finding colors that the occupants love is at the top of the list:)
Red is certainly a strong color. I love how you showed the same room with several wall colors and how that color can completely change the feel of the space.
Thanks, it is fun playing with the colors and seeing how totally different you can make it look and feel!
I really love those terra cotta shades of red. I think they are always a winner. Pretty post!
Thanks, I like them too, they are so rich and warm. Thanks for reading.
I love the way you show the same room with different shades of red. While I am not a personal fan of red (I don’t believe I have any of it in my own home), I love how you have shown the potential for me.
Thanks so much. It really is amazing how different the room looks by changing the color, especially the contrast between the pink and the deep rich reds.
Loved reading about your red inspiration, and your variety of images is great! Seeing is believing, well done Mary Ann!
Thank you Amy!
Thank you so much for including my art in your beautiful design. Red is one of my favorite colors:)
