Throughout history, the color red has played a significant role in the cultures of diverse civilizations across the globe. For some it evokes notions of romance and love, while for others, good fortune and luck. Pompeii red is an arresting color with its deep and earthy tones, exuding both rich terracotta warmth and cherry red boldness. Illustrious palaces, ancient Italian frescoes, Sir John Soane’s color of choice – this brilliant and bold shade of red is an instantly recognizable color.
