So, we will get to know these powerful color pairs, to make you more confident in combining red with other colors.
Keep in mind that we have started.

White combines with any other color, natural red is one of them.
We can easily mix red and white in the same space, either on the walls, or in accessories and accessories.
advice: Add to this binomial colors (red and white) warm shades, either with textiles or other colors like earth.
Let’s look at another bolder color that also combines with red.
Red and yellow.
Yellow is one of the triadic red colors, according to the chromatic circle, so it is another color that combines well with this one.
But although it is a suitable color to combine with red, yellow has a lot of power and is a very powerful color.
It must not be abused, it must be added sparingly, because the two colors together create a very energetic atmosphere.
advice: If you decide to add yellow as an addition to red, it is better if yellow is in softer tones than such a strong standard yellow.
Red and beige.
Another color that combines very well with the red color on the walls and decoration is beige, a relative of yellow that we have seen just now. One of the most beautiful beige colors is the timeless beige from Bruger, which you can buy here. Elegant, serene and bright.
Unlike some of the other colors we’ll see below, these two colors can be combined on the walls, application to large areas.
And there are some colors that are better applied only in small accents like pillows, paintings and other decorative accessories, but beige next to red, we can paint anything we want with them.
Of course, always in a balanced way.
A good example is the living room above these lines, where the wall behind the sofa is painted red and the rest beige, leaving the color stronger to create an accent wall or zone.
Red and blue.

Blue is the second triadic red color towards the color wheel.
This color not only combines, but also very well contrasts the power of red, providing serenity and relaxation, because blue is in the cold part of the wheel.
So that, blue and red can be combined without much trouble. If you are looking for a beautiful blue color to combine with red, the Bruguer natural blue you can buy here is the one that interests you.

Red and gray.
Obviously the gray had to match the red, because neutral is a color par excellence, along with white and black.
So, we can use gray and red without any problems, creating spaces that are mostly very modern.
If you add an earthy or woody tone to this pair of colors, the combination will be more balanced.
But let’s move on more colors that remain numerous and very interesting combinations.
Red and brown.
Taking dark brown as an example, it is also practically included all earth tones and other shades of brown, which are combined with red.
These colors are mostly warm and serene, helping to soften the power of red and create an overall more harmonious atmosphere.
Remember: Most earth tones and browns match red.

As we saw earlier with brown, red is also combined with other softer shades of brown or earthy tones, such as brown.
This color combination offers a softer aesthetic compared to a stronger brown.
Being medium brown, soft and calm tone, softens the power of red and together create balanced spaces.
Let’s look at another color we can combine with red.
Red and orange.
Orange is an analogous color to red, so it is also included in this list of the best colors with which red is combined.
Obviously you need to have a certain tact to decorate the space with these two colors, as they are both very energetic and expressive a lot.
advice: To understand this combination correctly, between them add another warm neutral color like a gentle earthy tone, as we see in the pictures above these lines.
Red and black.
As you can imagine, black is also another color that combines with red because it is a neutral color, like white and gray, that is accepted by every couple.
But it is also true that red and black go beyond that and always create a winning tandem.
Red and green.

Green is a complement to red; that is, it is the opposite and secondary color of the primary color, on the chromatic circle, relative to red.
Therefore, it is another color that we can say with certainty that it is combined with red. Opposite or complementary colors are widely used in interior design to achieve strong contrasts.

It’s not the first color I’d recommend you combine with red, because while it’s one of the best colors to combine with, turquoise and red must be cleverly combined, or we can create an extravagant space.
Of course, if you like it, you already see how they work together, and if you have questions, leave a comment that I will help you combine them.
In addition, you can see other colors that combine with turquoise.
Wood and red.
Wood, which is not a color but a material, can also be included in this list of colors that match red, as this must always be taken into account, due to the large amount commonly found in all houses, whether on furniture or floors.
And fortunately, wood, regardless of the shade, it also matches the color red, and he does it very well.
This does not mean that red cannot be combined with other colors or that it does not match any other. But The colors we’ve seen are the ones that combine best and with which we can decorate or paint a home almost without risk, they are safe.
