The power of red

If you’ve ever caught a glimpse of the glossy red soles that peek out from beneath Christian Louboutin’s iconic stilettos, you’ll understand the power that even a small amount of colour can have on your mood.

Louboutin has been painting the bottom of his shoes red since 1992, and the flash of red has been a regular on the catwalk and red carpet ever since, showing that this bold hue never goes out of fashion.

If you’re looking to bring a touch of luxury to your home, why not experiment with a daring dash of Louboutin red? The secret to success is to use this hue in small but potent doses, leaving plenty of white spaces to give the eyes a rest.

Try adding accents to a neutral kitchen or paint a feature panel above a fireplace or mantel. Temper the explosion of colour with natural tones on the floor or add a sofa in punchy scarlet or crimson for a lively double hit of red.
