Red: Bold & Beautiful


Invigorating isn't it? This maximalist oasis of fiery red and vintage posters is so far removed from what I'd normally choose, it might just work!
The colors of passion and love, swirled together in this gorgeous rug really bring the heat, don't they? I adore the pixilated look of the needlework too, which makes it appear as those it might be laid on the reverse.

Gorge! My dad is an upholsterer, so you would think I would have the most fab pieces done in the most modern choices. But,nope. I love to shop for it, but just do not have the time. by the time I get around to it, I am moving on to something else. I enjoy your blog!!!

I've changed the color palatte in my home from true red to orange, and the shift has made me really happy! I feel fresher and hipper (notice that I did not say hipp-ee) and more current as well. I'm loving it with the teal blues and turquoise....such happy colors.
