Red

Last night, my boyfriend surprised me with Taylor Swift's new cd 'Red'.
It's the little things like this that remind me how blessed I am to have him in my life!
In honour of the album's title, I thought I would explore a color I'm actually terrified of...red. Not red per se, but red in interior spaces. I'm not sure from where this fear stems..but I may have found the cure...

Enter Jenny Komenda of Little Green Notebook, one decorator who knows how to use red in an interior flawlessly.
I've seen her advocate in more than one post about using a little bit of red in every room.

 I think her trick is the type of red she chooses : tomato-y
When I was a little girl I always said my dining room would be red one day.
Was I fearless or what? Time to get back a bit of that edge.
Also, today I'm over at Brittany's blog Classically B sharing some of my favourites of the moment.
She's pretty amazing and has a textile line coming soon.

Happy Monday sweet loves! xo

I drooled over every photo.... I never think to use red, but after seeing these pictures, it truly makes a punch.

I agree, if you're going to do red, go tomato red! And I haven't heard the new CD yet, just the cuts they've released to radio. Happy Monday Tiffany!

Agreed! Red is just scary. I feel like you have to be an expert to use it, otherwise it looks tacky tacky. Headed over to check out your guest post now!

I'm not the biggest fan of Taylor Swift - but I am in love with LGN! Jenny's work is impeccable and adore everything she does (with the red too!). Hope you have a great week, Tiffany!

I have a bit of a fear of red too - I think it's because pink is so big right now and it can be hard to use them together! Love that red lacquer chest :)

love Jenny's blog! She is so sweet, she use to go to my church here in NYC before she moved to Brooklyn. Love red accents too!

love from NYC,

Taylor

Ever since I saw Big on SATC paint one wall red, I've wanted to try the accent wall thing. Those first few pics are phenomenal.

yes, red is no easy color but it can be amazing if done right. That red vanity for example is to die for. off now to go check out your guest post and that red-inspired blogger. High five to the BF as well for such a simple yet smart gift.
