Red Right

Red. I know I have posted about this before. I have an unsteady history with the color. I often find it either elementary or overkill, cheap or bougie.  Basically, I have trust issues with red. You see- it can be done SO right. In my mind that is the exception not the normal.  Every time I expect a beautiful red, it often ends up wrong. I want a luxe Hong Kong red, or a deep rose red. I love to see it pop on fabric more than paint. I like a red lacquer, not a red paisley. I am very quirky with the color. I love it done right, rich, and perfectly popped!

Here is a little bit of winter red to help you navigate the winter blues.

Red and green can make the perfect pair without making it feel like Christmas all year round. Then again, why is that a bad thing? Via Elle Decor
