color me red
“When in doubt, wear red.” -Bill Blass
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.
Above: Red paint was used in the foyer with red wallpaper in the background. The red paint was then transitioned into the family room. The red adds warmth and compliments the wood tones as well. The white trim and columns create contrast.
Above: Red accent tile was placed throughout the kitchen backsplash to add a bit of warmth and interest to the surrounding blues and grays. Red walls coordinate with the red accent tile.

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.
