Pops of Red for Valentine’s Day

I’m not a red person. It’s just not my favorite color (unless we’re talking about NC State — Go Pack!). In fact, we don’t really have any red in our house other than the art in our master bathroom. And that was a total fluke…I borrowed it from a local interior design shop to test out the size, knowing that I would hate the colors in our bathroom. But I actually loved it. It’s just the pop that room needed!

So that’s how I take my red: in pops. While I totally respect and admire a bright red room, it’s just not something you’re going to find in my house.

But each year when February rolls around, I can’t help but be drawn to a few red things in honor of Valentine’s Day. So today I thought I’d share some of my favorite red pops!

  1. I find red stimulating and exciting. I love being surrounded by it. I have a red ultra suede sofa and lots of red in artwork, cushions and accessories. It may have something to do with being an Aries. I was so delighted when you went with red for your front door. I looooove red doors.

  2. Years ago I would have agreed with you on red but after finding the perfect 1860’s chesterfield that happened to be upholstered in red leather I’ve changed my mind. I loved the sofa but thought I’d immediately have it recovered but once it was put into my living room it only took about 5 minutes to make me stop and rethink things. Red has since taken over. I never would have realized how wonderful it is to live surrounded by red until this happy accident.

  3. Hi Sarah! Just stopping by to say thank you so much for taking the time to fill out the 26 and Not Counting reader survey. I appreciate is to much! I’m not a huge fan of red either, unless it’s on my nails. This round up of red may have convinced me otherwise ;) Hope you had a great Valentine’s Day weekend!!
