A bright red Dutch door adds a fun splash of color to this neutral kitchen. The contemporary space is full of natural light thanks to skylights, while a slate stacked-stone accent wall adds texture.
All-American Breakfast Nook
Classic Americana gets a modern update in this kitchen's breakfast nook. Navy walls and glossy red, modern chairs add modernity to the more traditional red check window treatments.

Go Bold With Red Walls
The black-and-white trellis pattern on the back of the bookshelves is an eye-catching contrast to the red walls.
Brighten Up Outdoor Spaces
In this space by designer Brian Patrick Flynn, classic red adds a modern pop of color to this outdoor shelter house. Adding art, lighting and coordinated furnishings gives this bare-bones room a finished look.
Use Red as a Neutral
In this bold, eclectic playroom, the red walls take a backseat to the organic window treatments and geometric rug, pulling the pieces together for a cohesive look.
Red Walls Mean Fun
Bright red-orange walls encourage activity, so it's an ideal shade for the walls of this game room in Joseph "Rev Run" Simmons' basement.
Red Above and Below
Designer Emily Henderson used solid classic red below this home's white wainscoting, then added a contemporary vibe atop the rail with red-and-white patterned wallpaper.
White and Red Guest Bedroom
This contemporary red-and-white room featured in HGTV Magazine nods to classic cabin style with rustic accessories and a sophisticated, layered take on classic red bedding and window treatment patterns.
Bold Accent in a Classic Kitchen

Art Inspires Life
A Chanel print on the wall is echoed in this eclectic eat-in kitchen's red-and-white color palette.
Red Gingham Adds Country-Inspired Style
Red and white checked gingham bedding brings classic country charm to this bedroom, which is reminiscent of a revamped barn. Simple wood furnishings and high ceilings keep the space feeling open and light.
Try Bright Symmetry
Classic symmetry is the star of this red, black and white living room; a trio of red barn-style lights sit squarely atop vintage red-and-black dining chairs.
