Red is an aggressive color that, although may increase sexuality, if used too much it can arise negative and depressive feelings. If you're going for a calmer, romantic mood but would still like a bit of "fire" in your relationship, use red as accents in your decorating (see natural uses below) or in your clothing (for ex. a red teddy or boxers).
Natural ways to implement red: roses, carnations, apples, strawberries, rubies or other gemstones, candles, plants with a bit of red in them, red wine.
