The Day I Added More RED

Yep, I'm cruising into fall. I'm whistling all the way. This should aptly distract me from the fact that winter is hard for me. I've been fluffing, primping and painting, little by little, all in preparation for the arrival of autumn. This season, I'm adding more red and I'm lovin' it so much. It is a rich color but still has that hint of 'I'm a little bold and sassy'. I've changed up the dining area and the entry just by adding a little red. In the dining area, I repainted the mirror and changed things around a little, and see what I mean, it's just a little sassier over there now. LOVE. 





Next, over at the entry, I changed out my spring/summer wreath with this one I made last year. The woolly textured yarn just says cooler temps are on the way! Yeah baby! I wanted a little more fun in this area, so I added a little red ric-rac onto the plain white lamp shade, and ta-da, free freshening up with just the right amount of persnickety. That is a word isn't it?? Oh well, it is now~ ha! 





So what decor changes do you have in the works right now at your house? Shop around your house and relocate some pieces from other rooms. Decorating doesn't have to be expensive. Change out some colors and don't be afraid to change some pieces with paint. If you don't like it when you're finished, you can always paint it right back. So today's motto~ CHANGE IT UP!

  2. Hi Amy,

    Red is such a vibrant, happy colour that promotes passion anywhere it is displayed! I have used it as THE feature colour in my own home, here in the countryside of Crete and can appreciate its presence everywhere else I spot it! Your new hits of red are happy and fun and fabulous! Love the styling of these two spaces! Thanks for sharing.

    Visiting via Say G'Day Saturday,
