Happy Valentine's Day to all the lovers out there! Today we are all about RED - the color of the day, the color of love, passion, hearts and roses. Check out some inspirational red interiors and decor ideas from Country Living in honor of this lovely day.
We can't start a red round up of love without focusing first on the bedroom! This romantic room should be celebrated on Valentine's Day. Beautiful and delicate textile patterns throughout this bedding set mix and blend wonderfully all while evoking feelings of love. Don't be scared to go bold with your pattern mixes - as you can see above it can work out beautifully.
If you really want to commit to red this Valentine's Day why not go big with classic red wall paint?! This bold mudroom's walls become the focal point with the lovely application of bright red paint, but the mix of blues and whites in the room take this room from over the top to classic and traditional.
How adorable is everything that is happening in this bright red pantry? Surprise the one you love this Valentine's Day by adding a pop of graphic red wallpaper somewhere unexpected. The space between shelves in a pantry is a perfect spot to add a fun punch of color since its is hardly utilized for much else. It will be the perfect way to say "Hello I love you" on Valentine's morning.
If you don't want to commit to red walls or large scale red decor, why not add a punch of red with fun, Valentine's Day-inspired red decor and accessories. Shop the look here:
If you want to add some drama to your room, try something like this Mini Diamante Fuchsia Table Lamp - it's just enough to add a punch, but the white shade keeps the red minimal. You could also try a gorgeous red chandelier, such as this Bella Red Chianti Glass Chandelier for a dramatic color splash. Try something like this Bailey Poppy Red Round Accent Table, but add a couple decor items to it that aren't red. Something like this Hilltop Collection Crimson Area Rug makes a royal statement in any home. Go bold if you dare and select this Patterson Maroon Chenille Chaise, it will add dramatic flair to your home like nothing else. If you don't want to go big, but would love to add a little drama, then try a throw pillow, like the Diva 18" Square Crushed Velvet Merlot Throw Pillow. Let the color of love keep you on track each day with this Uttermost Chevalier Antique Red Wall Clock. Lastly, every room needs a wall mirror for the luxe factor, why not make it red like the Howard Elliott Anakin 24" High Red Lattice Wall Mirror?
