A red and wood mix and match bar

Take your celebrations a notch higher with this striking vermilion and wood combination for the bar in your home

Much like the bindi, the vermilion beckons us to stop, and with a setup this striking, stare perhaps. Used as accents, in tiny measures, vermilion in interiors makes for a great focal point. You can pair it with warm woods to tone it down. Here’s how you can work this grounded, earthy combo in your home too:

1.    Give your bar a makeover with an abstract, patterned vermillion wallpaper. Place a sleek oak or teakwood console against it and layer
       it up with red, orange and tan accessories for maximum impact

2.    You can even fashion a reading corner with this combo – think a matte finished red wall, a woven cane chair or a Chandigarh-style,
       relaxed chair and a polished, Burma teakwood bookcase. Place a side table topped with some fresh flowers and you’re all set for a
       marathon reading session

3.    A dark brown Chesterfield sofa against a dark, vermillion wall with a modern secretaire and chair will give you a drawing room/study

4.    Consider this combination for your home bar too. Rich tones of vermillion on the bar cabinet that are complimented with
       mahogany bar stools. Stack the top of the bar with whiskey and scotch decanters made of tinted glass, ceramic jars that hold
       munchies and earthen pots filled with potpourri and you’re all set to play host
