Okay…I’ll admit it. I am not a red person. I mean, if we are talking about wine, then yes. However, I find myself in a very tumultuous relationship with the color red. Like paisley, water chesnuts, and trips on small planes, it is something I prefer only in small quantities. Of course, there are some people that adore red, and I have much admiration for them. They can commit to a bold color, whereas I become weary of such a strong color component.
Often I see red in dining rooms, doors, and accent decor. I do love red as a focal pop of color in rooms where it is almost unexpected. The unpredictable use of red is a fresh take on the traditional color. A high gloss red piece of furniture or a velvet red lamp shade can add a sultry panache and pizazz to a muted room. I guess I am slowly learning to have fun with red ( in a Taylor Swift meets Miles Redd kind of way).
Speaking of Miles Redd…. How can you not love this velvety vibrant red tufted sofa. Even better that it is against a pink wall!

Of course, I can’t show a red door without showing a Redd door. Always so incredible, and wonderfully decorated for Christmas.
