Red

Do you have a favorite color that you have used every time you remodel or redecorate?

I do.  Mine is red.

Even, if I have a room that I swear will not have red in it, it comes sneaking in.


Even if it is just a pillow, or some red roses.

What is your favorite color, that keeps showing up in your home?

P.S.  I have heard that very soon, if you don't have a "blogger" blog, you will not able to follow me through Google.  So, if you have Typepad, Wordpress or any blog other than Blogger, please sign up on my sidebar to follow under the new Linky Follower.  Thanks!
Welcome Home,
Penny

The red really pops! I love your yellow walls! (they look yellow here) I have yellow walls and I love seeing how other people decorate in the space. So sunny and pretty!

Vee said...

I'd also say red. I like a pop of red somewhere in every room. But then, I enjoy color so I have lots of every color in every room. I like your restrained use of color and I like your red and yellow combinations.

Blue - there's not a room in the house - any house we've ever had - that hasn't had blue in it. That said, every room has at least one shot of red and something black.

I have found I am using more reds these days as accents as well. My favorite color is blue.

Pat said...

I love a pop of red Penny.

see you there! said...

I've had a blue and white kitchen everywhere I've lived. Colors are more mixed when it comes to other rooms.

I think lately I've been sneaking in more gray lately. I love your pops of red in your home too!

Maria said...

Navy blue. Almost every room in my house has a detail in navy blue. So classic to me.

Hi Penny, Definitely green in every shade. This home has a lot of my other favorite colors gold and bronze.
They all work together for me. I have to say red is part of my country kitchen/diningroom area. (one big room) I used it below my chair rail and picked it up with my antique oriental rug under the table. I like the way it looks a lot.

Yes, I reached for blue in today's post. The road looked kind of blue. HA! Then I added a President's Day pic a few minutes ago. Walla 'blue' HA!

Hugs, Jeanne

LOL! No you can't get a way from a color you really love. I'm always trying to embrace blue but I always wind up throwing some red in since that's the color that really makes my heart sing.

Babs said...

Love your pops of red! I say go with what you love.
I love green and have that in most of the rooms, although I'm thinking of trying a pale, grey-ish turquoise in our bedroom and bath, since I don't have mostly neutrals in there. Love your yellow walls.

Red is one of my favorite accents as well as blue. I think I add blue and white porcelain to everything regardless of color or style. It just goes everywhere.

All Ways Designing said...

I love the "pop" of the red, Penny!

I used to have red in this house - the walls above my sink/window and the stove...but I got to the point where it made me very anxious...so I painted over it!

For years and years, I always seem to have something black in every room, whether it be a fabric, a picture frame, the edge of a rug - and it's never let me down! It even works with PINK!! :)

Hugz,
Jan

Sam @ My Carolina Kitchen said...

I like yellow and use it a lot in decorating, but tone it down a little sometimes to neutralize it.

Love your red accents Penny.

Deserae said...

Love your little touches of red! I seem to always have blue somewhere in my home. I also like to add fresh flowers in pink some times :o)

The touches of red in your home look so lovely Penny! Mine is blues and greens. I have alot of blue accents in my house but not so many green. I need to work on that! Have a great day and stay warm!!

My favorite color is a soft yellow, and it does turn up just about everywhere.

The red in your rooms looks fabulous Penny. It's only the last year or so that I've bought anything in red, it's grown on me :o) Most rooms in our home has blue in it somewhere.

camp and cottage living said...

Penny
It's red for me too.
My very first kitchen was full of red, so it's not a new fad for me.
It such a 'happy' color.

Shelley said...

I love how you use the color red! I love that color too! At the cabin I have a bright red couch that pops against the logs.
Hope you're doing well!
Hugs,
Shelley

Blondie's Journal said...

The flowers and pillow really stand out nicely in your home. I don't know that they would do that here since most of my rooms are pastels. I have to say I must have a little bit of light pink in every room. It just works with my decor.

XO,
Jane

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

I would say red is the color that shows up in most of my home, too except it has been weeded out of the master.

Kathleen Grace said...

I think you know my favorite! Red all the way:)

Red seems to work its way into my house, too. Of course, my go-to color is yellow! I love that chair. Just lovely.

Red is also one of my favorite colors. I even painted my kitchen cabinets barn red! I Think I have red in every room....love it.

Mine's red, too, Penny...that and cobalt blue...really, besides neutrals trying things together, our home is red, white and blue!
