Selecting red tones for the colour scheme of sensualism is an obvious choice. Red is a stimulating colour known as the colour of passion and seduction that is said to enhance libido and metabolism as well as increase energy and enthusiasm.

The need for a darker shade is necessary for a sensual colour palette. Whether it be applied as a classic neutral tone for headlines or to create an air of secrecy and mystery to backdrops or images, when accompanied with a soft shade of grey that is almost white, the two together can seem quite ethereal.
