A random post
I came across a wonderful little blog today by way of Rebecca's blog, Starry Sky Ranch.
In her blog, she did a post on beautiful red accents that grace her home. Well, one look around here, and I had to admit, I have quite a few myself! To think just a few short years ago I was afraid to do anything in color and stuck mainly with white. If I was feeling very brazen, I might try off-white!!
But, alas, I have hit my forties, so there are no-holds barred now!! Here is a glimpse into my red accents. It is such a happy color, but to be honest, I never realized how very much I like it!!
Here is where it all started... Red cabinets as seen in a decorating magazine. The walls are a soft yellow and these cabinets are antiqued to make them look well-loved. We probably could have skipped the antiquing part of it...
I recovered our very old cushions to energize our family room a bit. Now they sit in our computer/living room as we invested in some newer, but not red couches.
Here I removed the standard, dreaded, vertical blinds and replaced them with these cheerfully red curtains from Ikea.
I feel so cozy in our bedroom. My husband picked this out for me as a Christmas gifts a few years ago.
What dog isn't complete without her red collar?
A chair given to us by a dear neighbor, Annie, who passed away a few years back.
Our shower curtain, with matching rugs of course!
