For the Romantics: A Pop of Red

Today I feel compelled to give some love to the color of romance, passion and drama...RED. When it comes to interiors, I tend to use red in restrained doses. A pop of red adds just enough color to create a strong presence without making the room feel overpowering or emotionally intense. While I certainly appreciate a dramatic, all red interior in a magazine, I'm not sure I could live in one! When incorporating red into your own home, choose your shade wisely. Deeper, velvety tones will lend a mature look to a room, while warmer shades bordering on orange or coral will allow for a more casual and contemporary feel. Adding a pop of red with pillows, accent chairs, stools or accessories is the best way to experiment; check out these rooms for inspiration:
