The Top Shades Of Red Paint By The Most Famous Designers

House Beautiful Magazine featured the top favorite red colors from the most recongized interior designers.  Here are my favorite 9 red shades of paint from their selection of 24


1."This is a really deep coral, kind of like a cheerful Chinese red. Pinks and reds to me are synonymous with frozen drinks and relaxing." -Richard Mishaan Pictured, Benjamin Moore's Chili Pepper 2004-20

2."When I look for red, I want a pure, true red, like the color in the American flag. Ralph Lauren does absolutely the best. It's the essence of red. It makes me think of boating or polo." -Suzanne Kasler Pictured, Ralph Lauren Paint's Dressage Red TH41

3. "Red never goes out of style. It's full of life — always fresh, always fun to wake up to. We go for reds with less blue in them and more orange because they're happier to live with." -William Diamond and Anthony Baratta Pictured, Ralph Lauren Paint's Lattice Red IB57


4. "It's a true, deep red. I like the temperature of it: it's a bit cooler. But a little red goes a long way. It's good in areas where you don't spend much time or in boring areas that need a strong burst of color." -Roderick Shade Pictured, Benjamin Moore's Million Dollar Red 2003-10

5. Benjamin Moore's Redstone was used in Eldon Wong's cupboard.

6. "All my life I've pursued the perfect red. I can never get painters to mix it for me. It's exactly as if I'd said "I want Rococo with a spot of Gothic in it and a bit of Buddhist temple" — they have no idea what I'm talking about." -Diana Vreeland Pictured, Benjamin Moore's Red 2000-10


7. "Red is the color of excitement, and I tend to go for corally orange reds. With red, you know you've arrived and you glance in the mirror and realize how great you look and breeze right in." -Keith Irvine Pictured, Benjamin Moore's Salsa 2009-20

8."I prefer the warm, vibrant reds to the historic reds, which are beautiful but sedate. This is a daring red, a real fire engine red. It has a playfulness that reminds me of a little red schoolhouse." -Ruthie Sommers Pictured, Fine Paints of Europe's Dutchlac Brilliant Tulip Red W1001B-M

9."Lately I'm on this anti-completely-neutral kick. You have to have some seasoning in your rooms. Sangria is good, universal-donor red — not too blue, not too orange, not too dark." -Elissa Cullman Pictured, Benjamin Moore's Sangria 2006-20
