The use of the color red in art and design is usually first to capture the attention of a viewer, guest or any on-looker. The color red makes an immediate statement that is here 'n now, not demure or receding; red does more than suggest an idea or impression, it is the color of life that cannot be denied or easily hidden away. Joyful and intense, the color red brings passion and an overt physical nature to any personality, as well as to any inanimate object, an interior design or painting on a wall. Red gives full-bodied life to a room or event decorated with red accents. From Persian carpets to velvet cushions to satin ribbons to fresh roses to art glass, the placement of red in a design, pattern or room, instantly tells your guests or companions about your love for life and pleasures, and also the need to share this expression with them, in a moment or time for celebration.
