Don't Be Afraid: It's Just the Color RED

The most amazing aspect of being part of the design world is that your personal favorite can change at the drop of a hat. This is also the case for your least favorite thing, or color, in the case of this post.

As long as I have been able to decide what color is my "pers
onal favorite", that color has been blue. Hands down, no question about it, Blue! And at the other end of things, my least favorite color has been red. Well I am here to tell you, that bit about red being my least favorite color, that is quickly changing.

The color red can be a scary color, because it is vibrant and daring; but once you begin to slowly bring aspects into your space, you are then able to appreciate the beauty of the color. And, if you are feeling extremely bold, paint the whole room red, or jazz it up with red drapery against a white wall. But if this seems a little rash, then slowly bring elements of red into the room with furniture and accessories. The photos I have attached are a few items that I think are wonderful examples of the wow and pop factor of the color RED.
