What Your home has always wanted to tell you about red

Design In Your Life

“Red is the first color of spring. It’s the real color of rebirth. Of beginning.” -Andie Condie

As we endure these last few weeks of winter, what better way to warm the heart and home (and perhaps a cold outlook on the winter weather) than by incorporating the color red into everday life? Red is often associated with love, vibrance, passion, and beauty. Perhaps you’ve always dreamed of red wallpaper in your bathroom, a Wolf range with it’s signature red knobs in your kitchen, or some simple red heels. Whatever you love, inspiring shades of red can be found everywhere.

“When in doubt, wear red.” -Bill Blass

red fashion

Will you wear red this Valentine’s Day? If so, how will you wear it? Perhaps a red dress? Maybe you prefer your red to be a bit more subtle…how about red pumps or a red clutch?

Whether used as an accent or to envelop a guest with the feeling of cozy warmth, red is a favorite go-to for many looking to make a statement. When thoughtfully used, red can add emotion and life to any space.

Perhaps you aren’t ready to commit to red paint, red wallpaper or a red washer or dryer. If not, that’s okay! Try a new recipe using red fruit, chili pepper, or salsa instead.
