Red is a powerful color, it is used to symbolize passion as well as war. You see it in emergencies, stop signs, things to grab your attention. Infrared was discovered by astronomer William Herschel(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Infrared) , used for thermal imaging, red is one of the higher vibrational frequencies of the light spectrum, hence the prism in color theory begining with R in ROYGBIV. Red is said to be a pretty powerful stimuli for an environment, and it is used often for restaurants because it influences hunger. Red in holistic belief systems and new age practices believe red can be a symbol of ambition and promotes strong will(http://www.empower-yourself-with-color-psychology.com/color-red.html), I must admit Red is always a color I shy away from because I find it so dramatic and harsh, after researching a little I found many uses for red that not only are chic and stunning its made me like the color a little more. Below are some vibrant rooms done in red:
