"This leans more towards an orange-red versus a blue-toned red. It reminds me of my favourite lipstick. It is sexy but also earthy. This colour is fabulous for a statement piece of furniture (try it on a kitchen island!)." — Taniya Nayak

“We’re drawn to the earthy and contemporary hue of this colour. It has just enough brown undertones to work well with almost any warm-toned neutral. It’s perfect for a small space, like a powder room, that needs to pack a punch.” — Jean Liu

“This classic shade of crimson reminds me of the glamorous 1970s and feels inspired by mid-20th century artists like Rothko and Motherwell. I’ve recently used it in the interior of a credenza for a surprising contrast to an otherwise conventional piece.” — Patrick Ediger

I would use this red in a dining room mixed with an antique mirror, gilded furniture, and a rock crystal chandelier. It is sophisticated and luxurious." — Alex Papachristidis

This red looks amazing with warm woods like teak and walnut, so it's the perfect compliment to a mid century aesthetic: rich, yet calming and elegant." — Alec Holland

"It's a stately rich, bluish red that has just enough blue in it so that it whispers colour, rather than shouts. It's a comfy, liveable red that is perfect for any room of the house." — Elaine Griffin
