I used to have this huge aversion to red.  I'm not totally sure why.  I think I saw it as a little outdated and easily rustic...which is pretty much the opposite of my personal taste.  I didn't see how it could be luxe or soft.  To me, it was just bold and gaudy, an 80's vision of tacky "lady in red" dreams.

It wasn't until I started combining it with analogous colors like blush and plum that I started to fall in love with it.  Suddenly, it was romantic, a little risky and just the pop of personality my subdued hues needed to be paired with.

You heard it here first.  I predict a shade of red, whether it's berry, bordeaux or oxblood, has a really great shot at making it to the top of Pantone's top colors of 2014.  Here's a few pieces to buy to get ahead in the red race.

  1. I was just in target and there is a whole display of red picture frames. I just loved them. You may be onto something...:)
