Hi there godzkidz38,


Thanks for joining our community!~


It's a bit of a difficult answer to give, given that I'm not sure exactly how dark you want the black and how red you want the red?


I can however speak from personal experience on this one as I helped paint a black and red room years ago! I painted the walls completely black in Behr's Beluga and then stenciled red clouds (yea, those are clouds heh and they're supposed to look that way) on the wall with Ruby Ring.'s a picture I took during the job!




And here are the color codes for what I used:

They are much deeper and brighter respectively when you actually see them in real life. Partner that with a satin finish and the red really popped!


I will say though, the black was VERY black and the room Shrundown in size incredibly after the paint had dried, so take that into careful consideration.
