Hat tip to House of Turquoise for featuring this contemporary and sophisticated blend of colors and patterns.

Think of rustic style and the first thing that comes to mind are large logs and rough wooden surfaces that define the walls and the ceiling.

Just like choosing the right gray for the bedroom picking the perfect red is an essential component of this look. No matter how small the red accents might be the shade you pick will make a big impact on the style of the room.
