Patterns and prints are back in fashion. Designers predict that large bright flowers will be one of the most popular  trends in 2015 . Why not stock up on pillows, blankets and other crimson-coloured accessories with ornate patterns. 

Minimalist raspberry

As a rule, fans of minimalist style and the high-tech look see crimson only in nightmares. But this doesn’t have to be so! For example, a crimson chair can look very stylish in a strict black and white interior. This design course emphasizes that austerity and love of order are only one side of the homeowner, in fact, his personality is much more versatile. 

Ease and fun

Maybe your attitude to this colour is starting to change, but you’re not quite ready to buy cranberry-tinted furniture. Why not pay attention to small and fun accessories that not only decorate your home, but also create an atmosphere of ease and fun? A small candle in the shape of a pink bulldog, pictured in the photo, simply can not but cause a bright and kind smile. It is also ideal as a gift for loved ones and friends.

A sudden burst of brightness among neutral tones? Why not! Adding a pillow or two in a colour like crimson can refresh a monotonous design overnight. Remember that crimson goes perfectly with white, grey and other neutral tones. You can also form successful combinations of crimson and purple or pink tones, but only on the condition that one of these colours is the dominant shade and the other adds accents.
