I’ve had a long-term love affair with bright red so I was pleased to see a current version of this vibrant shade in the Pantone Fashion Color Report Fall 2016. They call it Aurora Red or Pantone 18-1550 to be exact. It’s a classic bright red that is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. So, how can we work this lovely red shade into our next project?

Add this lively color to a white bathroom design for just the right amount of brightness. I love the ‘Aurora Red’ area rug in this light, modern bathroom.

This color packs so much punch, you only need a tiny bit in your design to make a statement. Think stool cushions or throw pillows…

First off, I must have one of these chairs! When looking for ways to add ‘Aurora Red’ accents to your space, don’t forget your upholstered pieces and lighting.

This bright shade of poppy looks great in industrial designs as well. A perfect accent to grays and blacks.

Shop this color (some cool things I found on the web)…
