Paint the town Red

One of my favorite colors is red!! When it comes to accents for the home, clothes, shoes, jewelry, and even wine - I just love red! It's just a color that makes you feel good! There are many different shades of red which is what I love too! I am still trying to find the right accent color for our living room - which is the first room you see when you enter the front door. The past few days I have been playing around with red. I had red accents in our last house in the main room and I loved it - but usually come summer time I ditch the red and do another color. But with the weather getting cooler and thinking of the upcoming holidays, I feel the need to add a little red in my life.

I am going to continue to work on the room and when I finally feel like it's almost the way I want it - I will share pics! For now, these are some rooms with some hints and accents of red that I love. In these rooms you will notice that not all of them have a ton of red. This reminds me that you don't have to do a whole lot of red in the room, just a couple of red accents pieces, or a throw pillow can really add a great pop of color. Oh and I had to throw in a couple pairs of fab red shoes I saw too! I LOVE a pair of red heels paired with jeans and then a little black dress!

Does this room not just look SO cozy with the fire place and throws??
How fab are these shoes?? I would so love to "Paint the town Red" wearing these!

I love red too! Any shade of red I love. In the summer, I love a bright red, and in the winter/fall I like a deeper shade of red, almost maroon. I would kill for some louboutin shoes. Loveeeee them!
