While matte finishes give the room a more understated look glossy reds are ideal for contemporary bedrooms searching for that rich exotic look. Shades like berry red manage to bring in a touch of purple along with red and take the decorating process in an entirely different direction!

Finally we take the path of red accents for those who are still having color commitment issues and a fear of jumping into red. Give the daring reds a shot by using a bold rug an accent chair lovely bedding pillow covers or even nightstands in the hue.
