Red and Grey, on their own, might present either too bold or too dull a picture to your bedroom’s design. However, combine them, and you get a surprisingly elegant look. This is because grey suppresses red from becoming overpowering. It gives your bedroom a unique, differentiating style. In this article, we shall look at bedroom decor using the red and grey combination. Let’s get into then!
Red is often associated with courage, romance, warmth and energy. It has the longest wavelength of all colours, and thus has the property of making things appear closer than they actually are. This makes it a very attention grabbing colour.
Grey on the other hand, is a colour associated with lack of energy, hibernation, and neutrality.

On their own, these two colours might present either too bold or too dull a picture to your bedroom’s design. However, combine them, and you get a surprisingly elegant look. This is because grey suppresses red from becoming overpowering. It gives your bedroom a unique, differentiating style.
Vibrant Red hues can increase your heart rate, so it is advisable to use warmer tones of red which are associated with the positive attributes of red like warmth and comfort. Grey is popular with interior designers as it is a natural canvas for them. Using the right intensity and tones of the two colours is essential to get the right look for your bedroom.
A grey setting for your bedroom can appear gloomy, but with the right introduction of red shades, the bedroom can have an earthy tone. A fabric upholstered bed in warm hues of red is a good way of doing that. Add accessories and patterns that suit your taste to make the space more inviting.
Our fabric upholstered beds come with the option of colour customization. Customers can provide their own choice of fabric to us to match their vision.

The red grey colour combination works well with the popular industrial interior design style. Think Dan Homphrey’s iconic Brooklyn apartment in the popular show Gossip Girl. The brick wall design and sleek metal accessories with recycled materials give that warehouse look. This style has been increasing in popularity and has made its way into more traditional homes as well.
Your bedroom is a fantastic way of introducing this style. Introduce line patterns through big photo frames, pillows and other elements. Metal beds can be incorporated to keep up with the theme.

White is one of the obvious compliments to a red grey colour palette. Interplay of red and grey through subtle elements in a white interior is also a great way to style a bedroom. In such cases, a bold bed design can add some glamour to your bedroom decor.

Another good practice is to add elements of nature to give a refreshing boost to your bedroom. Brass knobs to add a regal note. Small green details like green picture patterns in small frames add a brightness to this colour combination. Like black, this also breaks the monotony of the bedroom.
To conclude, red grey bedrooms provide a raw, masculine look which exudes warmth and comfort. The most important thing is to pick up the right shades and that should ideally be done after you have picked up your accessories for your walls and furniture for your room to really get the right balance.
