Red











I haven't really been using red in my work lately but I have recently started to love a touch of red again. Here are a couple of images which reminded me how great {and fresh} a little bit of red in a room can look.

Nice to "meet" you!
All the best,

Red is -- bar none -- my favorite color in decorating. Throw in a splash of mustard/gold as an accent, and I'm in hue Heaven.

I adore your blog and follow it daily. Reading your words re: the radiance of ruby made me smile.

Long live red.
:)

I love the red and white striped bedskirt and headboard! I may have to make a go of that look here at my house.

Lovely post, I love the first picture and I agree a touch of red is wonderful just like in the closet. A little goes a long way. I popped into your store on the weekend on a trip to Brisbane, it is beautiful, everything I thought it would be.

A touch of red is often a great way to add something onto the interior and introduce energy and variety. Especially when it's not overwhelming.

I love the use of red in interiors as well. As a matter of fact I just did a "red room" on my design blog too because I had not been using it enough - what a coincidence!

Its so regal and bold. Love it.

LOVE the red tube!!! I've never seen one before.

And I know her dress isn't red, but it's still gorgeous. :)

Red is good luck in Chinese culture!

I love a touch of red in an interior. it brings life and interest in a way that most colors cannot. Its like the old saying, "buy a pair of red shoes and you will find they go with everything"

May I congratulate you also on a fantastic web page - Gorgeous!!!! frm Michallee of www.moirasarmoire.blogspot.com

The last photo is my fav. I am so addicted to display cabinets/hutchs at the moment.

I love the red and white bedroom, beautiful! Perhaps I'll become a red person after all.

Love the red bath... very unexpected!

I'd agree with you on the fresh look of red in a room. Especially if the room has a lot of white and has a very crisp, clean feeling. I also love rooms that have beautiful Interior doors . When I was younger and my family was looking for a house, my dad was always looking at the doors. They had to be good doors, and have a sort of classic look. For my taste, I just like a door that looks vintage or has a little something extra about it. Maybe a hint of red in a detailed door would be that something extra?
