Ready for Reds
Posted On October 13, 2015
We love the colors autumn brings to the outdoors and are so excited to share ways to bring them indoors, too! “Red” can range from rich browns and burgundy to bright pinks and deep orange – pick a shade that you love and enjoy adding pops of color into your home.
Which color is right for you? Well, let’s take a look at some of their meanings and you can see what speaks to you best:
“Real” Red translates to energy, passion and determination! Have a long list of “to-do’s” piled up this fall that you’re determined to get through? Take it on and spend more time at home. Maybe instead of a date night out, you can plan a romantic candle light dinner in (it’s okay – order take out and transfer it onto a plate!) and rekindle the passion between you and your spouse.
Fill your home with some beautiful red throws and artwork that will keep this love and energy alive season after season!
Orange is all about friendship and optimism. It’s not as bold as red, so tends to have a more calming effect when decorating your home. Add subtle warmth to a room with an orange accessory or vase. Spice up a neutral couch with some pillows in shades of orange and a clementine colored throw. Place a piece of orange artwork and an accent pillow over a chair or sofa to create a comfortable place to curl up and chat with a long lost friend.
Pink IS pretty and it’s all about love and nurturing. Are you bold and willing to decorate with hot pink? Or are you on the softer side and prefer a dusty hue? Either way, have fun with it. Add some pillows to your sofa to liven up a neutral grey or brown pallet. Or, use a beautiful vase and treat yourself to some bright pink roses to add a loving touch to your home.
Bringing color into your home can be scary for some. But it doesn’t have to be! Embrace the season, play with color, and enjoy the fruits of your labor! Shades of red will color your season!
