Do you like using red in your home decor? Or does it feel a bit too bold for you?
Whether you love red or are a little skeptical about it, there’s a way you can incorporate this warm tone into your home decor color scheme.
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 toward 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 this 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.
Or if you’re open to having a little more red in your space, why not try adding it in with some fabric, like in the case of these adorable red buffalo check curtains?
Major companies are producing some of their furnishings in red, like this iron bed from Anthropologie.
Ethan Allen has this adorable bedside table in a bold red as well.
Red Painted Furniture DIY’s
If you’re up for a DIY project, you can create your own red painted furniture piece!
One of my favorite recent furniture makeovers is a red piece from Linda @ Q is for Quandie.
I also tried out red on one of my own makeovers.
I remade this dresser using Fusion’s Ft. York Red.
And check out this adorable trash-to-treasure side table from Kim from at Exquisitely Unremarkable.
She used red chalk paint to create a focal point in her living room with this cute table she found on a curb!
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?
Either way, I hope you’ve been inspired to maybe try a little of this bold shade in your own space.
