Coming Around on Red

I have something to confess...

I don't much care for the color red in decor.

It used to be my FAVORITE color ever!

But for a while now I haven't cared for it. It was hard for me to work with, it felt like it overpowered everything else and was generally sucky.

But lately, I kinda like it.

The other day I even picked up this fabric swatch.

I'm smitten with its Ruby velvety loveliness.

And after a quick perusal of my pinterest boards. I noticed I've pinned quite a bit of red.

A lot of images actually...

This last image might have to be the inspiration for our hall bath reno. I'm thinking red and some inky blue, you know, in a non patriotic kinda way.

Are you a red lover? Have you always been?

I had a rather dominant red accent wall in my last house that set the tone for the rest of the decor. I swore I would never commit to red to such an extent again but I do plan on using touches in my guest room.
Nicely done blog. I found you through the Houzz feature. Congrats!
