A Love & Hate Relationship with.......RED.

I have somewhat of a love/hate relationship with RED.
In my opinion, it can be a home run, or a VERY bad decision.

Especially where interiors are considered.
I find that I do like red when mixed with other colors and layered with different prints and textures.

And I like red most when it's used as a bold statement.

Like on this dining room wall.

 Or mixed with aqua & graphic black and white.
I also love red when mixed with classic navy.

And rich cobalt.


Red looks great when mixed with ivory and gold

Designer Miles Redd is a veritable master of red.

 Mr. Redd is especially into tufted red sofas, it seems.
I love how he mixes pink and red and takes it from Valentine's-ey to sophisticated.

I'm also a major sucker for the iconic Scalamandre Zebras.
And I definitely like the red colorway.

I love how designer Jamie Meares used the Scalamandre zebras to grace her bar!

What's your take on red?
Love it or hate it?
