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,

  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

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

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

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

  8. 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

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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,

  15. 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.

  20. 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.

    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.

  25. 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!

  26. 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,
