One thing I hear over and over again is that I don’t decorate with enough color. I disagree! Just because I don’t use it in major ways (like walls or cabinets) doesn’t mean I don’t ever use it. In fact if you look back through my design gallery you’ll see there’s actually quite a bit of color scattered throughout.
Color is tricky when you’re dealing with rentals and resale value, which I do on a regular basis, so everyone who has commented on the lack of color has a point. I always need to appeal to as many people as possible, and I do that by using a lot of neutrals. And quite frankly, grey is my favorite color so I use a lot of it. But…I hear you, and I don’t want to discourage anyone from using color in their décor. So in honor of Valentine’s Day – because you know I love you guys – I’ve gathered together a whole bunch of red home decor items that can be incorporated into virtually any room.
Decorating with red is actually pretty easy. Although it’s a strong color it pairs effortlessly with a lot of others (including grey!) and it can be incorporated in a ton of different ways. I don’t recommend using it on fixed items like tile or cabinets, but when it comes to red furniture and red home decor, have at it.
