The Color Red

The red dresses that were worn to the Oscar's by Sandra Bullock and Jennifer Hudson were breathtaking. And when I walked by the bakery counter at Vanille Patisserie in the French Market in Chicago, I could not resist the decadent little red cheesecake. It made me think about the color red's impact when used in a home decorating scheme. The color red is a passionate color and adds drama every time it is used in a room. I was so excited to find this vintage , vivid red screen from France. It is the perfect red- hot, sexy, and makes a statement. We don't often have a lot of this color in the store, but I couldn't resist the series of the three monkeys behind the red drapes. And for the last dreary month of winter in Chicago, this needed little pop of red color in our front window makes us smile and know that red tulips will soon be blooming!
