Color Spotlight: Tomato Red, Redefined

Posted by: Kali • Sep 11

Color Spotlight: Tomato Red, Redefined

A little bit country, a little bit rock-n-roll, our lush and bold Tomato Red tile isn't afraid to stand out. Evoking charisma, passion, and action, this vivacious hue is rooted deep within our psyche. From the runway to religion, red makes a statement wherever you find it.

Red interior design can wear many hats. Going from imaginative...

...adding red to your interior design can be just what your space needs to add just the right amount of pop, no matter your taste. Craving more crimson? We thought so. Here are three different looks you can achieve with this must-have hue. 

It's Eclectic!

Eclectic interior design is all about the element of surprise, and red plays this out perfectly. We love this two-toned bedroom and the textured walls. A mixing and matching of patterns and finishes adds layers of depth while playing off the pared-down palette

The classic red checkered backsplash takes on a new life when paired with a bright teal wall (who knew?!). Mix in open shelving, florals, and flea market finds and you've got yourself a lively and vignette that's one-of-a-kind.

Going Global

Red can take on an alluring elegance when found in exotic locales. This restaurant pays homage to its menu's Eastern origins with a beautifully tiled mosaic wall. Red is known to stimulate the appetite, and this is no exception.

Taking cues from the Spanish Revival, this handpainted tile staircase's elaborate Cuerda Seca designs pay homage to a tradition that goes back to the 16th-century.

Inspired by geometric Moroccan tile designs, this eye-catching bathroom veers away from the typical blues and yellows of the reigion and opts for a bright red and white palette that feels no less exotic. A bronzed mirror and wall sconces add splashes of regal whimsy.

Modern Love

It can be hard to disassociate red from Radio Flyer wagons and rooster collections. These modern spaces toss those stereotypes out the window and show how red can make a space feel bright, revived, and even daring. Case-in-point: this red penny tile backsplash takes this contemporary kitchen from basic to bold.

This monotone mosaic shower packs a punch in this otherwise minimalist bathroom.

For the modern purists out there, this striking bathroom design might just change your minds.
