The Color Red Enlivens Any Room

Red furniture anywhere in the house makes a room pop.

When looking at interior decorating photos accumulated over the years, red often shows up in furniture.

Whether it's an armoire, a side table or even a chest, red looks fabulous.

It is, after all, a vibrant color and one equated with passion and zest for life.

It's also predominant in  Polish crafts and outfits.

My maternal Polish grandma's white kitchen curtains were edged in crocheted white and red!

At the top of this post, you see a beautiful red chest, right?

It belongs to my dear friend, Christina.  

It's in her dining room and every time I see it, I love it.

That's also her red home's front door.  

Like the door and chest, Christina has a zest for life, too!

Hello from Spain: Red is my favorite color. I like these proposals in red. I have not red furniture in my house. I have tablecloths and bedspreads in red.Keep in touch

I agree, red does make a wonderful statement. Thanks for sharing these photos. Now that I think about it, I don't have red furniture, but I do have some dark rusty orange colored pieces. I suppose that's kind of in the red family. :) Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I love that red chest, Susan. It looks old with a bit of history behind it. Yes, I love RED! I just added bits of red and white in my kitchen. :)

Have a wonderful week.

My friend had a red front door, and it made a statement. I like red as a decorating color and have splashes of it.

I love red accents! And I like that wallpaper. Oh, so pretty! One of my favorite red things of all time is the English phone box. How I'd like to have one of those in my garden or even in our house! :-) I do have a red bench under the chalk board next to the back door.

Love the chest so pretty. No I have no furniture in re as most of my home is in ice cream colours. I have a little red in some cushions but that is it.

No red furniture. A interior decorator told me years ago every room no matter what color should have a speck of red somewhere. I have some vases and jars or a red cup among all my blue and whites!

Hi sweet friend! Oh, what a joy to visit you :) I agree, red is such a great color in the home. My kitchen has red accents and it's one of my favorite places to be :)

Hugs to you, Susan!

I have pops of red in my home. Being married to a retired fire captain, I learned to love the color years ago.

Did I hear that in Boston everyone paints their front door red? I think that is so awesome and I love her trunk. She must be a fun friend. I have some red in my house.
