Try Deep Red in the Bedroom

Vibrant reds can be overpowering in a bedroom, so if you’re looking to create a relaxed and cozy atmosphere perfect for hibernating, try darker tones, such as burgundy. Burgundy contains hints of black to visually bring the walls in to create the ultimate cozy feeling.

Paint is a quick and easy way to instantly change the mood of a room. The darker the colour the more light it absorbs.

It will really set the atmosphere for meal times and will help bring you together with friends and family, making amazing memories.
