Rev it up with red



I think red is one of those colours that works whatever the season. It can look fresh and summery or warm and cosy. You can't beat its versatility.

Still needing a red fix? You can look at my earlier red posts here.


For those Aussies that have been following Homemade - yay Jason! Woohoo! I'm so pleased he won. I love his elegant timeless style, and he is such a sweet and relaxed person.


Best wishes,

You would have loved my last house....it was the cutest little cottage built in the 1940s, and I had red in every room. It was really quaint. ;)

Red is a gorgeous colour, but for some reason I never use it in decor or clothing. I own almost nothing red. But yet I do like its purity and simplicity (not a complex colour!). For Christmas, I tend to use pink-reds as bright reds don't work with my decor. Still - I love these photos!

Hi Catherine,
I'm so glad you bought yourself a trip. We should all spend more on experiences not possessions! I hope you have a wonderful time.
I am surprised by your 'red' post. :) I use a deep coral in my home, change curtains with the seasons, etc., but not red-red. I do like those images though...Maybe...
Thanks,
Andrea

oooh, we could all use some more red in our lives. I use to have a red bedroom, but I found it really hard to sleep.

Hi Catherine,

I love your red post ~ always such a bright and cherry colour.
I did a red post recently too.

A house we bought once, had a bedroom with red and white checked wallpaper, that was one of the first rooms that we worked on.
I do not know how you could have pleasant dreams in a red room!

Hugs
Carolyn

Love these photos, especially the first living room and the one with the red piano.

May I say, it makes quite a pleasant change to see some colours in your posting. Nice change of pace!

Such a vibrant post to lift a cold Winter's day! Of course you are biased with red Catherine - all you need do is look at the gorgeous A. with that drop-dead amazing red hair & know red rules!
