Red and White Decorating

June 24, 2011 by admin

Red’s a tricky colour.  When I think of decorating with red it usually makes me think of t00-rich red walls or shiny, lacquer red accents.  Not really my cup of tea.  But I was pleasantly surprised with these images from House Beautiful Magazine.  They’re all about decorating with red and white, but in this case the reds are often washed out so or scuffed up.  The result is fresh and romantic rather than being all Valentine’s Day, you know?  Take a look, what do you think?

    It really works, doesn’t it? So many patterns but the red ties it all together.
