Interior trend: Cayenne red


Interior colours are heating up with the weather. Embrace the warmth with these cayenne pepper-inspired pieces


When done right, red in a bedroom can be exquisite. Take note from this Linenhouse Rosie quilt cover set in coral — it hits all the right notes.


Beautifully simple, the Sadler stool by NF Living and available from Zanui was crafted from clay, fired and glazed to give it a natural look. The glossy red finish creates a sizzling contemporary piece.


Give your feature wall some interest with bright patterned wallpaper. The Fingers wallpaper by The Elephant Room is cute and red hot.


Conjuring a sense of joie de vivre, this Dubonnet art print by Down That Little Lane makes an impact. Perfect as a feature point in any room.


Detailed workmanship and quality technology have produced a stunning piece in the Prince chair by Minotti and available from dedece. The ’50s style with the deep-red hue creates a rich effect.

Create winning combinations by contrasting textures and patterns in Cayenne Red. The Dart cushion in red uses measured geometric patterns in quality fabrics, whereas the Azalea cushion in coconut brings a sense of fun with its ruffled pieces. Available from Rapee.


Cayenne red can be perfect for small pieces of decor, adding to the overall effect of your interior. Start with Carmen placemats by Kas Australia.


A little retro kitsch, a little natural beauty. With tropical themes becoming popular as summer approaches, the Eco chic scarlett glass parrot is quirky and fun.


Retro styles are perfect for bold reds — as can be seen with the Retro Print Revival Mini Disc table lamp — Noko Fire.


Storage is always a concern with interiors, and we love to make it stylish. This revolving cabinet by Cappellini grabs the eye with its colour and adds interest with its unusual form. Available from Cult.
