Because red is such a hot color, painting your entire kitchen red is a surefire way to turn up the heat. But that's where restraint comes in.

This kitchen was originally painted the chandelier's poppy color, but to keep the "kitchen lighter and brighter," says Civility Design's Don Raney, the team repainted with crisp green and white. Now the red poppy antlers stand out against a clean background and the color doesn't overwhelm the room. Red antlers not your style? Try scarlet-hued hanging pendants or lampshades.
