I am a red person.  My poor roommate in Boston (Eleanor) came home one day to find our living room floor painted high-gloss cherry red. She was not happy.

I have a red jeep.

Red chairs in my family room.

I have decorated two of my bathrooms red…

I thought since Valentine’s Day was coming up, I could do an ode to red this week.  It is one of my favorite colors to decorate with.

Red in my French Posters.

The Wry Home Winter Berry Candle
My red holiday candle.  You get the gist!

Here are some beautiful red rooms I found in Architectural Digest:

It is such a fun color!

Even Rhino has a favorite red chair.

My (blurry) little red/pink breakfast nook makes me happy every morning.  According to Psychology Today, those who love red, live life to the fullest and are tenacious and determined in their endeavors. Who knew!
