In honour of Valentine's Day, I thought I would compose a little post about red!
If you've been reading my blog very long, you'll know that I am not a red person. It has historical reasons - I am a fair skinned blonde and have never looked good in red. People always talk about blue reds and whatnot, but why wear a shade when I look better in virtually every other colour? Exactly.
So red was noticeably absent from my life for years. Maybe it it the Scandinavian bloggers' fault, but I am starting to acquire a fondness for red. Red and I have made a truce!
When I started looking through my decor files, there weren't many photos of rooms featuring red. But I did find a few, and these lovelies stood out. So without further ado, here are some pretty red rooms for Valentine's Day!
I love the red in this OKA shop advertisement. Bright red looks best (to me) in a sea of white!
The little red ottoman and flowery red and white rug in this Shoot Factory room are delightful
