Red is a very powerful color that is often associated with fire and blood; it can be connected with energy, war, danger, strength, power, determination or desire and love. Highly intense and spectacular, red is a color of emotion that can increase metabolism, respiration rate and elevate blood pressure. This being said it is understandable why some homeowners do consider a tad too powerful for home-use when it comes to their chromatic palette yet every now and then, an individual bold enough to give it a go breaks the charts, creates the extraordinary, the unbelievable with the color through bold red accent walls.

The kitchen and dining room are, at the end of the day, the spaces in which we share the most extraordinary days with our family, spaces in which we find comfort through food, spaces that offer us that important glass of water when we need it. The kitchen is considered the inner core of a home for a good reason; cast a glance at the extraordinary designs below.
