Big, Bold, Red

My buddy Raina posted this delicious image today and as soon as my eyes fell upon it I thought, oh, wow! Those red chairs, especially coupled with the crisp, stark white really left me reeling.
So I was inspired to scroll through my inspiration files and cull out those big, bold reds (and the quieter ones as well). From tomato to rust and all those juicy pinks and oranges in between, an ode to red.





















Are you feelin' it, friends?

The nursery Pieter Estersohn did for his son is one of my favorites in the history of ever.

A splash of red makes most spaces feel polished.

Hi Leah. Thanks for visiting and welcome. I agree, these images are pretty darn fantastic and I am often on the fence when it comes to red.

Love all of it- the Neisha Zebra chairs are my fave and that nursery is AMAZING! Red isn't usually my favourite but this collection of pictures might have just made me a believer.
