Red and Green Interior Design and Decor Ideas…

Red and Green Scheme

This dynamic duo isn’t exactly new or fresh, but there’s something special about the pairing. There’s a certain nostalgia that is created when placing these two tones together, however more than that, there’s an obvious reason these hues were paired together in the first place.

We place complimentary colors together all the time – blue/orange, yellow/purple – so why do we steer clear from the natural draw of red/green? Take a look at a few spaces that have defied the odds (so to speak) and paired this classically Christmas duo together.

I personally love them all – what do you think?
