DESIGN TIPS Brighten tired rooms



Published: Mon, February 17, 2003 @ 12:00 a.m.


Well-known interior designers and decorators offer a variety of hints for using a splash of red to brighten rooms.
Marjory Segal
Give old kitchen chairs a lift with a true, energetic red, like Benjamin Moore Vermilion (No. 2002-10).
Add fresh red binding to a worn sisal rug.
Use red pleater tape on white wooden blinds.
Camille Saum
Toss a single red leather pillow on a white sofa in an all-white room.
Carolyn Wilson
Line up five silver julep cups filled with red flowers on the mantel.
Try Pottery Barn's red "Farm House Bench" at the foot of a twin bed, in the hall or in the family room as a crayon-proof coffee table.
Bud Yeck
A pair of lacquered red tables instead of the usual coffee table in front of the sofa.
Dress a chandelier with bright red shades.
Pamela Gaylin Ryder
Cover the back of a bookcase in red flannel.
Pick a red cashmere throw with chocolate trim.
Put a shiny red glaze on the outside of a claw-foot tub.
Victor Shargai
A big glass or crystal bowl of the reddest apples you can find, or a plate with two perfect red apples on the coffee table.
