Maroon. Wine. Oxblood. Raspberry. Is it just me or are these colors everywhere right now?!
Dramatic. Romantic. Passionate. Fierce.
From the streets ….
…..to the red carpet.
Awesome chunky burgundy scarf from Lulu Love’s Etsy Shop!
Julie from the fashion blog Sincerely Jules wears it well. Love these pants.
I came across this amazing DIY home dye job. I love it, but I think I will just live vicariously through her blog post.
Red has never been one of my favorite colors, so I’m not so sure if I could pull these looks off. I think my fashion sense is too neutral and “normal” What do you think? I must not be the only one that feels this way! Maybe I need to step out of my comfort zone….
Okay,okay…..here’s something I can live with – nail polish!
OPI. Going to CVS to get this ASAP.
You may ask: How does dark red look in a home? Great. Fantastic. Wonderful. But under one condition – don’t overdo it. A little goes a long way.
This red exterior door is welcoming yet sophisticated. Painting the whole house this color would clearly be another story.
Because deep reds are so bold, first buy a rug or other accessory to “try on” the color. I love this Amy Butler rug because it uses a peachy coral and a light pink to offset the red.
Lots of red items out there, here’s my faves:
1: Amy Butler Caracas Rug
2: Mitchell Gold Beverley Banquette
