Adding Some Red to the Decor

Posted by on Apr 5, 2013 in dining room, family room, kitchen, thrift store | 14 comments

I see all of these beautiful, neutral rooms that I LOVE.

So, I begin to remove all bright colors from my rooms.

Then, I see a great lamp at the thrift store.

It is beautiful.

I cannot resist.

I fully intend on selling it,

or using it in a client’s house.

But, once I see it in my family room.

I see how it really picks up some of the other red accents in the room.

And, once I find the perfect home for the lamp that used to be in that spot. . .

And, find a new home for the lamp that used to be in that spot. . .

Using Red in the Family Room @ DaisyMaeBelle

I walk back into the family room,

and, realize that I am keeping that lamp.

It is just too perfect for my family room.

So much for the all neutral room. . .

I just like red!

  1. I love red too!! Such a pretty lamp!

  2. I know exactly what you are talking about…everyone has light bright walls again…I have some rich paint colors in my house such as ginger red and chocolate….It’s a fad…Love your lamp…I think too much neutral gets boring

  3. You are so funny! It looks great…

  4. I think pops of red really liven up this room…very pretty and lovely home you have there 🙂

    Thanks for sharing with us, and it’s always great to see creative minds at work. 🙂

  5. Me too! I love the neutral look, but can’t seem to capture it for myself! Color always creeps back in! 🙂 Love the lamp!

  6. Adding a splash of red definitely brighten up the room. I love it! And love that trumeau mirror. Thank you for sharing.

  7. Wow, that is the perfect lamp to brighten up that corner…don’t you just love thrift stores! Hope you return the visit…

  8. I’m so glad to have found you again! Love the new look. I love the light and white look, too, but I love so many of the pieces that I own already! LOL
    I can see why you’d like to hold on to the lamp, it’s just perfect where it is! Love it!

  9. I love the lamp & have been adding in little touches of red in our home, too. I’m shocked because I’ve never been a huge red fan, but I am really starting to love it.

  10. That’s a gorgeous lamp! It looks so rich next to your gold frames. Gold and red is so classic, isn’t it?

  11. Such a beautiful lamp! Thanks for sharing. We both posted about adding red accents in a room on Sunday Showcase 😉

  12. You are right, the lamp is a keeper! I love how the red pops against the other more neutral tones in the room.

  13. “They” say, you need a little red in every room. So there you go! I’m glad you’re keeping the lamp.

  14. I’m a girl that loves color so I totally agree that it looks great! I like the shape of it a lot too.
