Are you in the RED???

I had my father paint my room RED when I was 15 years old...I wish I had a picture to share....I had blue shag carpet, poppy red walls, and red and blue poppy spreads and drapes...I have always had a love affair with color.

RED is an emotional color - it is Activating, Stimulating, Passionate Exciting, Powerful, Expanding Richness/Warmth, Love/Sensuality,Transformation and it attracts attention.

I used red a few years ago, when I redesigned our summer cottage at the Jersey Shore - I decided to play off the red through out the house starting in the kitchen.

Bedrooms are right off kitchen so I included Red in the bedding

The Red is a great color with just about any color cabinet

Red is great for an accent wall

It works outside and in

Red accent appliances make a statment

You can have fun with Red

Love the way it POPS

A Red door welcomes your guests
