Color of the Moment: red & black

So friends, before I launch into my Color of the Moment post, I am proud to tell you that I finished my first ever century bike ride on Sunday! Great friends, beautiful weather, cool temperatures and a tailwind for the fist 1/2 of the ride (which does however, translate into a headwind on the way home...) helped ensure that this 50+ gal was able to ride the whole 100 miles and feel pretty darned good at the end.  I guess when one puts their mind to something, there is no stopping them.  My trick out there was not to get too far ahead of myself mentally, keep a steady pace, to enjoy the company and laughter of friends and to always see the finish.  It was a truly memorable day and the talk is to make it an annual tradition, but that's getting a little ahead of myself wouldn't you say???!!!

Today's color combo was inspired by my friends and their red & black bike jerseys....

Vivid and graphic, a little or a lot, red & black together is exciting. Whether a designing a whole room around these colors or using them as accents, there are many amazing, bold product choices available. Today I share a round up of some of my favorite red & black goodies...enjoy!

Does your room need a “prescription” for a change of decor, function or design
If so please contact me, I would love to help your room feel better with a Design Concept Board or a complete Room Rx.
