seeing red.


via reflect / refract & kitschcafe.

there’s nothing quite like a splash of juicy red. alarming, charming and alluring, they all fit as ample descriptions of red. whether it’s pretty painted toenails, and a swish of lipstick, or a pretty party dress, red just stands out in a crowd. i love a room boldly decorated¬† in splashes of red, or just a subtle hint of it dropped into decor of tailored gray, black & white. there’s just something about red.

    At the moment, I want to crawl onto the red couch, pull a blanket over me and nap for hours, smiling because the couch is so cozy.

    I just dyed my hair red on Tuesday. On a whim… just because…I turned 40 this year. I suppose 40 years of “dirty blonde” hair is enough of a reason.

  13. Ren says:

  14. I love red. It is THE accent color in my house and has been for several years. I just wish I had that red & white floor tile.


  15. Brandi says:

    For the longest time I didn’t like red, but I think I’ve changed my mind about it. The red door with the heart on it may just have won me over permanently.

    shots of red are the best, I agree. I love my light grey walled bedroom and my red and white bedding!

  23. Christine says:

    I’ve never been a big ‘red’ person, but you’ve inspired me to add a pop of red into my decor! My favorite is the red dresser.

    Greetings from Mexico!!

  25. Very exciting to see our friend Marusica’s home featured here on sfgirlbybay. The owl lady is definitely a one of a kind piece created by Dolan a few years back. All the red-inspired interiors are wonderful!

  26. victoria says:

    The kitschcafe red dress photo has just given me inspiration for how to shoot some vintage clothes I am about to sell online! Thanks!

  29. Tamzen says:

    you have inspired me. i too love red, but after seeing this looked around my house and realized, it desperately needs a red piece of furniture. I see a red side table or child’s rocking chair in my near future.

  30. Valeria says:

    I love that red dress! It’s got a great collar!
