Hey Y'all Lets Flaunt Some Red!

Hello friends and welcome to my first flaunting of the red! This fun event is temporarily being hosted by our friend Stacey over at PoofingthePillows while Nancy is beaching it! Link on back over to Stacey for more fun red flaunts.

Let me just start by saying I am no stranger to red. I have had red in every home I have owned and more often than not a lot of it. My current home is no exception. Let's take a little tour of some of the red I have down stairs! Red Iron Trivets (thank you very much Target)

Every kitchen needs a red Cafe sign (thank you HomeGoods)

My reading chair in a lovely red on red diamond patterned check. Comfy and cozy. Thank you very much Ethan Allen!

Red pillows

With red window panels to match. I loved this fabric the first time I saw it, but I didn't like the price. The sleuth that I am was not willing to give up on it and after a 3 month search found it at an affordable price. I still love it 3 years later so it was worth the extra effort!

Red matted doggy prints.

Yes even my new laptop from Mr. Whimsy is red. He knows me too well.

Red porch floors. How's that for some POP!

Red tulip oil painting. Color saturation at it's best!

Even my study has painted ceilings that is!

These are just a few of my red touches. I will be sure to join in next time for more fun red inspiration! Thanks to Stacey for hosting this fun event.

  4. Hi KD!
    What beautiful red fabric on your drapes and pillows! Your red painted porch is great, and the black furniture really stands out on it, and looks awesome!!

  5. I love all the red in your house. I don't have much red in mine & I don't know why as I love red. Probably because we have ugly teal blue/green carpeting that I HATE!
