Any and all Red Tile Wall Designs have an amazing and often subliminal impact due the nature of the color red and our mental processes. Let’s dive into that for just a moment.
We recently found a very cool website, colorwheelpro.com. They describe red as: “Red is the color of fire and blood, so it is associated with energy, war, danger, strength, power, determination as well as passion, desire, and love. Red is a very emotionally intense color. It enhances human metabolism, increases respiration rate, and raises blood pressure. It has very high visibility, which is why stop signs, stoplights, and fire equipment are usually painted red. In heraldry, red is used to indicate courage. It is a color found in many national flags.” That is certainly quite a mouthful. However, we have always felt that our understanding of the emotional impact of color has been a tad incomplete. The above description adds to that base of knowledge.
That said, red ceramic tile has always occupied a place in the mind of any designer or homeowner looking to bring a strong sense of place to a space. We have selected a powerful red at the top of this post and then a more muted red immediately above. Both are from our new Bella Muro Collection. Thanks for reading!
