Scarlet red — a force to be reckoned with — does not have to dominate your cottage decor. Paired with the white painted furniture of a cottage dining room or the earthy tones of a lodge living room, this deep red punctuates the neutrality of a room in a powerful yet poised way. Incorporating scarlet can be as easy as adding red throw pillows to a white slipcovered sofa, a square red floral tablecloth diagonally over the center of a long planked farmhouse table, or a red painted end table next to a whitewashed coffee table. The red at the top left of our Color Board is one option for just such an end table from our Country Classics Collection, just one of our many furniture lines offering various styles of occasional tables.
Our featured scarlet-compatible wool rugs range from one with a solid, slightly rusty red background with a subtle and dainty border to two other boldly patterned rugs worked in many colors. Earthy colors such as mossy green and beige in the rug design, along with red, allows many color possibilities for accessories. A rug such as the 100% wool Fort Apache Sandstone Hand Tufted Rug lets you easily tie scarlet in with beige, pale aqua, indigo or even a brownish green. The solid and striped fabrics we have pictured from our Shoreline Slipcovered Fabric Collection are just two possible accompaniments to go with the overall color scheme.
