Pop, Pop, Pop

Good Morning!  It's nice to enjoy the quiet before everyone else rolls out of bed.  They are precious moments that help to keep me sane for the rest of the day ; )  Do you do the same thing?

I wanted to share with you a designer trend that is creeping up everywhere and I can't tell you how much my husband loves this.  Red.  The color red, candy apple red, is popping up in home decor.  My husband who has had a red motorcycle, a red car, red shirts, etc..  

He just couldn't be more design accurate, LOL.  I think red makes him happy.

To use it in your space you don't need to paint the walls red just add some accessories.  Here are some images to inspire you..

In this pic all they did was add the pop of red to the lighting and it gave the room the wow factor.

Absolutely love this kitchen.  The chairs added the right element of color and make me think about food.  

Warm tones of red compliment the cool blue color.  

I have something up my sleeve where I will be incorporating red in my house this fall and will show all of you.

I wanted to share with all of you that our Community Undertaking/Rockford Sharefest was put on the Angelo Home Blog.  We were so honored.  While your there check out his furniture line Angelo Home.  It is truly beautiful.  

                                Have a great week!

  2. Ummm, "wow" regarding the above post! That's pretty stinkin' awesome! But I wanted to comment that I love the pictures you posted with the pops of red. Love that they aren't quite so overwhelmingly red in the room, you know?

  3. Thank you, Kristin. I will get on that right away : )

    Hi, Jules! I don't like "red" rooms. I do think red is a great accent color. I have a "red" project I want to do soon..hope I can pull it off.
