It’s naturally suiting that the color of the month for July is…Fiesta Red! With summer in full swing, this color is sure to evoke the red-hot shades of summer heat and spark your decorating fire to spice things up. Just as the name suggests, this color brings a celebration to any space and grabs the attention of anyone in the room.
As opposed to the deep nature of a classic red, fiesta red contains more orange pigments, creating an energizing ambiance. To give this
color some tangibility, think of it like a tomato (representing fiesta red) and a glass of Pinot Noir (representing a classic “warmer” red). This specific shade will be more versatile during summer months and leading into fall before the warmth of a heavier red starts to take its place.
Brighter? Yes. Lacking in bold appeal? No. No matter the shade, red will always steal the show from other colors in the room, and the subtle orange hue of fiesta red is no exception. Whether it is something as apparent as a large piece of furniture, or something more understated such as a light fixture or throw pillow, the eye will always be drawn to this bright pop of color in the home. Due to the power a color such as this commands, it is best to showcase it rather than having multiple strong colors competing for focus of the room. This isn’t to say that all other colors in the space should be neutral; any combination of navy, turquoise, or white will enhance red instead of detracting from it.
Don’t let the temperature be the only thing heating up this summer! Raise the temperature in your home with pops of fiesta red in accent pieces, armchairs or even a sofa. Fiesta red is a color that will bring a warm and positive vibe wherever it is used!
