Red. Great, vibrant and energising colour which, I think, is little bit understated these days. It’s not “hot” anymore.¬†It’s not like grey or black. Or marsala. It’s not “in”. To me if you want a pop of colour, red is a great choice. It’s like the red lipstick. You can wear minimal makeup but once you put that red lipstick on, your face suddenly comes alive.
I came across this modern eclectic living room designed by Lucy & Company (I love Beth Keim, the designer behind this studio) and thought that it’s such a great example of embracing this kind of pop of colour!
In this open living room you can see that red is the main star while the neutral palette, which is very interesting btw with lots of textures and layers, takes the backstage.
If you want to achieve something similar like this in your home, little bit more eclectic and modern then Joss & Main should be your first resource¬†when it comes to furniture and accessories.
