Fusion Mineral Paint Fort York Red: bright red for an unbeatable contrast

Fort York Red is a bright, vibrant red that’ll provide an irresistible contrast in your home. Although it may surprise you, this red tone is a very fitting color for many types of projects: yes, it stands out quite a bit, but it brings vivid beauty to many color schemes with pieces like the ones we’re going to look at. 

A few ways to use Fort York Red

There are plenty of Fort York Red projects out there, but these three stood out to us because they’re pieces that can work for anyone, in any home. Take a look and see what you think! 

Fort York Red dresser

With a coat of Fusion Mineral Paint Fort York Red, this dresser is gorgeous! As you can see, it makes a wonderful holiday piece, but would definitely look great at any time of the year as well. Note how well this dresser fits in with its surroundings. It makes a statement all right, but it also fits right in with the warm color theme of this home. In other words, you don’t need to worry that Fort York Red will overwhelm the rest of your color scheme – instead, it’ll help bring it together. 

Serving tray

This adorable serving tray wouldn’t look quite this good in any other color. Fort York Red makes this little tray work for any occasion, from serving snacks to your kids to breaking out the nice dishes for company. Additionally, it’s a creative way to bring color into your collection of kitchen tools. 

Outdoor bench

Fort York Red is also a great choice for outdoor projects like this gorgeous bench. If your front porch is feeling dull and boring this summer, we definitely recommend taking up a project like this one – it’ll transform your quiet summer evenings in a big way! 

Colors to use with Fort York Red

To really make this bright red tone a part of your home design, check out some colors to use with it! 

Warm neutral shades

Cream and white are two warm neutral shades that are an ideal way to offset Fort York Red’s electrifying brilliance.

A shade of off-white that lends a helping hand to any warm color scheme, cream is perfect for taking Fort York Red’s brightness down a notch without taking away from its beautiful color. Notably, if you’re going for a retro look, this color combo is a great way to make it happen. 


You can’t go wrong with white and Fort York Red. Like cream, white can combine with this bright red tone to create a type of retro farmhouse look – or just a farmhouse look if you aren’t into the retro style. If neither of these work for you, white and Fort York Red can also create a formal color scheme that can really dress up a home. 

Darker colors to dial it down

Sometimes, darker colors are just what a Fort York Red piece needs.

Dark gray

Fort York Red and dark gray combine to create an undeniably professional look that’s also beautiful. Additionally, dark gray tones like Fusion Mineral Paint Soapstone can help dial down the brightness of a Fort York Red piece if necessary. 


In general, dark green is a great color to use with Fort York Red. Of course, everyone knows that green and red make a great Christmas color combo as well. Fort York Red is no exception. Together with green, it embodies the holiday season. 

Adding more color

What about adding even more color to a Fort York Red piece? These two colors are great ways to make that happen.

A darker shade of red makes Fort York Red stand out even more while toning it down at the same time. This combination will give your home a rich beauty that you just can’t get in any other way. 

Dark blue

Dark blue and Fort York Red balance each other out perfectly, with blue bringing the bright tones of Fort York Red down to earth a little, while Fort York Red brightens up dark blue tones. How could you say no to this beautiful combination? 

Fort York Red is a brilliant red tone you won’t want to miss

Fusion Mineral Paint Fort York Red is definitely a color you don’t want to pass up. It’ll bring so much color and fun to your home that no other color can. To keep Fort York Red’s vibrance at bay a little bit, try out Fusion Mineral Paint Seaside, a deep blue that’ll balance your bright red pieces. Ideally, your new projects will keep you busy over the summer and bring something new to your home!
