pops of RED

 Hey y'all!

It's day one of Color Week here on The Striped Flamingo Today's color focus is RED.

Well, I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with red. I've even blogged about it before. I don't HATE red, but I don't really love it either. Sometimes, I like red, in theory but not a lot of it and certainly not all by itself.

When I was younger, I (for some reason) had a tendency to decorate my home with red. Actually, there was quite a bit of red. Red evokes a sense of home and comfort for many people. Which is why it's a popular decorating color. I tend to use other colors and red only as a burst of color or an accent. Here are some of my favorite rooms/spaces that incorporate pops of red.
