Dressed In Red



Red; such a romantic and warm color - and just in time for Valentine's Day! Here are some photos taken from two different rooms in an 1889 Victorian home, each with wonderful ideas for decorating with red.

Red sponged wallpaper on opposing walls makes a beautiful backdrop to the blue and white accents in this living room. 

 

 


Blueware and a colorful bouquet give a splash of color and draw attention away from the abundance of red. The other two opposing walls are painted in a muted color, making the room less busy and more pleasing to the eye.

White lace panels and plenty of lace doilies give the room a romantic appeal.

 

 


A whitewashed wicker chair adds a splash of white to break the red, and keeps the room from being too dark. Airy lace panels let in plenty of sunshine.

More Blueware, a great accent to the red is an unexpected but pleasing contrast. The brick red display cabinet brings the two colors together in harmony.

 

 


The piano, a family favorite, makes a cozy corner. The Victorian picture above the piano is matted in sage green, preparing the viewer for the color of the next adjacent room.

The oversized pillows, fluffy throws and blankets in colors and prints of red make a warm and inviting sofa. Notice the navy blue sofa; another break but a welcome companion to the otherwise red room.
