Just last week I posted a lovely photo on my Facebook page of a breakfast nook decorated with very cool color furnishings and decor.  A friend had mentioned to me that she thought cool colors are more in style at the moment, while warmer colors are on their way out.  I tend towards cool colors, so I didn’t argue with her 🙂 And after asking for opinions on my FB page, many people seemed to agree.

So I was confused then when all I seemed to spot at last weekend’s flea market was RED furniture and decor! There were no cool colors in sight!  Every time I turned a corner, I came upon another red display.

I mentioned my confusion to one of my favorite dealers at the market, and she confessed that whether it’s in style or not, she absolutely adores red.

So I’m wondering now, what do you think of red in terms of decor?

I took a minute to look through Pinterest to see what red inspiration may be out there, and here is a little of what I saw.

In these spaces red is used as an accent . . . most of the color scheme is very neutral, with the bold red acting as a statement piece.

Major companies are producing some of their furnishings in red, like this iron bed from Anthropologie,

and bedside table from Ethan Allen.

One of my favorite recent furniture makeovers is a red piece from Linda @ Q is for Quandie.

The red and turquoise contrast is gorgeous (the turquoise is a fantastic Fusion Mineral Paint color called Laurentien, FYI).

So what do you think?  Is red in or out?  Is it a timeless color?  Or do you just say the heck with it and use whatever colors you like, whether they are in style or not?
