Red color brings creativity and passion to the kitchen decor. Decorative accessories in this primary color heat up the ambiance.

Red tablecloth on a kitchen or dining room table is a lovely and creative choice, especially for decorating a table for a romantic dinner or setting the scene for a festive holiday gathering. The fiery appearance of the red color can be “cooled off” by combining this energetic color with tableware and decorations from the neutral color palette. If you wish to “warm up” the atmosphere for a romantic dinner, place two red heart-shaped candles on the table and a couple of red roses since these floral beauties express love. Red rose in full bloom declares “I love you.” or “I still love you.” as a bouquet of rosebuds compliments on youthful appearance and beauty.
