Interior Infatuation: A Bevy of Red Beauties

I'm throwing in some red interiors today as another nod to Valentine's Day.  Little known SPPN fact: I painted the master bedroom in our first home dark red.  It went down in history because as we were painting my husband's grandfather came to visit, and when he walked in he said: "Oh, thank God you are painting over this awful red color!"  When we told him that we were actually painting over the other color with the red he gave us a rather puzzled look and left the room.  Needless to say, it got mixed reviews all the way around, but I liked it.  I wouldn't do it now (this was eight years ago guys) and I've realized that I don't have a single red item in my house now either.  I do think a hint of red can energize a room though.  Here are a few images where I think red is done right:

How do you all feel about red?

  1. Red is my favorite color! You'll find it all throughout my house, usually just in little punches. I do have a red kitchen, but it's getting painted over after 10 years with it. I'll have to settle for the red in my little stained glass window and my bright red colanders.

    All of your images appeal to me. My very fave: the alphabet wall!

    I love the color red. Is it possible to love every single one of those pictures you posted? Because I do!

  3. We have a lot of red in our house, which is funny because I so don't wear red. The darker colors (red in the family room/kitchen AND the master bedroom) go well with our older house and our style, but the decor in the next house will definitely be lighter.

  4. I love red for interior decorating! Our living room is dark red and brown and I just love it! And the accents in our guest bathroom are bright red, orange and green. I love how happy and welcoming it feels! Thanks for all the great pics. I especially loved the alphabet on the wall. Very clever.
