Monday Color Moods are Red Hot!

Today I'm dedicating the Monday Color Moods to red hair (and maybe Valentine's Day)....


I always hated my red hair...I even do sometimes now, I would always say "its not red, its strawberry blond!" But I am learning how to embrace it! I think red is a great color, especially in a home! It adds that hot sassy and very romantic sensation that many other colors can't give a space. I use a deep red-orange in my home that's carried through my living room, sun room, and dining room. I love it and I admire any space that uses a "bold here I am watch out" red!

i do have always hated my hair color. i was the odd ball growing up and when you're little you always want to fit in. but i've learned to embrace it. i get compliments on it daily (as i'm sure you do too) so...i just try to think...it could be worse.

is that you in the first picture? i love your hair...i wish i could get mine to do the "wavy, half way up bump thing." i'm slowly learning.

too funny, I've always wanted hair your color!

btw, where were you in that first photo? Just curious; it looks like 'nest' in greenville!

Love red! I've used it as an accent colour in our kitchen and family room. My latest red "accessory" is a Kitchen Aid stand mixer - it looks great on the kitchen counter :-)

Love the bold red mirror in the first picture :-)
