Happy Valentines day! In keeping with this romantic day of the year we are focussing on the beauty of Artisan Reds. The colour Red embodies many things from  passion, love, romance and spice right through to danger. It's a bold high impact colour and when it comes to decorative painting there are many ways to interpret it. Mute it down with darker coloured waxes and washes to suit or rev up the volume with a top coat of Artisan gloss lacquer.  Whether it's a nice clean finish through using Artisan Velvet Luxe  or creating a decorative finish through Premium Chalk Paints, you have the freedom to uniquely interpret your Artisan reds to suit your interior styling . 

Here we show you three Artisan Reds 

Brickyard, a deep red, that can be used for industrial style homes when paired with Carbon Black wax  or a Carbon Black wash and satin lacquer for a cool deep red finish which pairs beautifully with black metals.  Off set it with dark silvers and pewters to finish off the industrial look.  For a Farmhouse rustic finish warm Brickyard up and create a vintage style finish with dark wax giving you the appearance of a beautiful vintage aged red that works well with wooden tones in the home.  

Ruby Red is our brightest, loudest red and is a top pick for contemporary spaces wanting a strong bright pop of red. Artisan lacquers create a beautiful rich finish to all Artisan reds and is a great option for creating that red lustrous look. Ruby red is also our top pick for creating  oriental style finishes when used with a carbon black wash and Artisan gloss lacquer but we won't get into this too much as we have a video here for you as our valentines day gift for you. An easy and inspiring way to create an oriental style lacquered finish and the beauty of this is that you don't have to be perfect! works beautifully on pieces with little to no detail with plain straight lines, allowing you to transform it with character into an oriental style lacquered finished . Pull out those plain Jane pieces!     

Sangria is an in between a beautiful pinky wine like red that can fit both contemporary and more traditional styles. Modernise with Carbon Black wax or wash and lacquer or create a more classic look with dark wax. It offsets beautifully with greenery. 

Red is not for the faint hearted  but it certainly has the ability to capture and captivate and when done right. Spread over a piece of furniture in a room it will have the eye drawing towards it as a feature. Inject a little passion and excitement into your space with an Artisan Red.
