I love deep red, blue toned red because of that calming effect of me. It makes me feel secure cuddled and somehow "put together"
To bring up what tsar asked in his first post "do you have an overall design scheme", definitely yes.
It's not just the red, but what is going with it. A home with red needs camel, deep rich yellow (I hate yellow in general, having trouble just typing it), bordering on brown. There's not much more classy looking than a red and camel room, with added jewel tones for interest, or an outfit with those colors.
Other complimentary colors like grays, whites, creams, blacks I like too, depending on the overall design.
Since the only blue I really care for is cobalt, I wouldn't put any blues in my home or wardrobe, except for blue jeans.
Light blue especially makes me feel sterile and cold.
I'm not a pastel person.
