color of the month


I've never really been a red person but lately I've been drawn to it. 
I'm not sure what to blame it on but I'm just loving the bit of spice it lends to a room. 
Red just might be my color of the month. 

One of my clients found these wonderful vintage barrel back chairs in a consignment shop. 

Aren't they hip?

  4. I love the color red especially when it is mixed with lighter colors. Light blues, yellows, and for a girls room I love the combination of red and pink. :)

  5. one last note: I actually started to love the colors red and green because of you! ;) Do you remember that darling room you did last August? You did it in reds, greens and white and I fell in love with it. ;)

  6. i've always loved red, but hated blue. now i find myself being drawn to a few shades of blue. i keep telling myself that i don't like blue... but i think i'm going to just give in and embrace it.

  7. Red scares me for some reason - I always see spaces by others done so lovely in red - but I'm yet to think of a way I would really want to use it in my home.

  8. Of course as a painter, red is essential. I have two chairs inherited from my mother that I reupholstered in a heavy red ribbed cotton. They're really wonderful, although at first I thought I'd hate them. They were originally covered in red silk with yellow tassels and lived at the Chinese Embassy in DC...
    Now every time I sit in one, I think of my mother.
