Well Red

Oh, red. It’s such a fabulously hard color to work with. The perfect red lip? Evasive. The perfect red dress? A challenge. But the perfect red paint? That may trump all. But, when it’s done right and all lacquered up… my, how good it is!

Unfortunately I don’t have the guts to put this practice into action in my own space. The closest I might get would be the dining table, and I believe when I finally get it lacquered I’d be doing a yummy shade of teal. But, there are always other options…

Artwork? Pretty trims? Maybe even a small accent piece? All totally doable. I know just said I’d be doing my living room in greens for spring, but all this white with a hit of vermillion could be dramatic, divine, and energizing!
