...red. My Mom's fav color is red. I'm making a red bow for her cake. What other colors should I use? HELP!!!
Depends on the look. Do you want something that pops or something sweet and nice and calm. You can use black as an accent color to make the red pop or white or you can go with lighter shades of red. You have to kind of think of the color wheel and what goes well with red. Generally I wouldn't pair up green because the whole christmas holiday stigma that seems tied to those colors. Sometimes when in doubt I look at the ribbon section of my craft and fabric stores and look how they use accent colors and what pops out at me. Hope this helps. Good Luck
red, black & white
red & gold
I personally love red & pink & orange together
red, turquoise & purple (has to be right shades to look good though)
you can always mix ALL colors and have like a rainbow....kinda like they do kids' ABC's & 123's
I like Red and Gold and also Red White and Pink, I am from Ga so I am a fan of Red, White and Black
Red, orange, yellow, and brown for an autumn look.
If it's a brownish shade of red, it look great with a rich brown.
Oh, go to a paint store and get some swatches, and use their computerized color coordinating software to pick out perfect color combinations for the shade of red you like best.
Behr has free software online for that.
then click on the explore color tab at the top.
Or go to
and click on color schemes at the top
Don't forget patriotic...red, white, and blue!
I've used just red and yellow before on a white base and it looks summery and fun.
Nothing wrong w/ just plain old red and white...here's one I did,
Whatever you choose, post pictures!
