Red on the Red Carpet

I know, the Oscars are "so over already" but ever since the "Red Carpet" at Sunday's Oscars showcased so many stars in red, I have had red on the brain as it relates to the home.  One of my favorite re-caps of the "Red Carpet" fashion came from Erin Gates of Elements of Style , read it here, she had me laughing out loud with her comments, but onto the red... I love red and have quite a bit in my own home, but I wanted to see what was fresh, fun and current as far as red goes these days.  So first a couple of my favorite red gowns (and I'll leave out the commentary as no doubt you have already read or heard it):

Next a few furniture items in yummy shades of red:
Great lines and good looking , the perfect pop of ginger - red.
Crate and Barrel 
This chair is rich looking in velvet with embellished details.
These Ikea pieces add a great sense of style for not much cash.

Not normally a fan of big leather furniture, I do like this rich red sofa.
 Hancock & Moore
I couldn't do red without including one of these!

Finally a few rooms dressed in reds...
Lots of different reds layered in this room, along with a healthy dose of white, it works!
This modern approach pairs shades of green with bright red and avoids looking too Christmas like.
Again red paired with a healthy dose of white.
The pale blue in the walls and rug are a lovely touch with the red.

I love how this tile updates a vintage kitchen.

Red walls.....

Don't forget the ever classic red front door....
Finally, my foyer with it's faux grass cloth paint treatment and red lamp!
Are you a fan of red? How have you used it in your home? Thanks for stopping by and have a great Wednesday.

Does your room need a “prescription” for a change of decor, function or design? If so please contact me,
I would love to help!
