Red is one of those colors you either love or you hate. The right type of fiery personality struts it with confidence or splashes it about in their home decor. That said, we are not typcially that person {save a good red lipstick!}. But with a tinge of orange and a hint of rust, a fresh poppy hue has us rethinking our refusal to experiment with red really hard. It’s jolting without being offensive to the eyes and it’s subtle undertones make it surprisingly sophisticated. Best part is, you just need a pop of it!


What do you red-haters say? Good, right? Those shiny, lacquered cabinets really get us going {in a good way!} and those bold strokes in the abstract painting just bring it home. We also can never say no to a blood orange anything and juju hats in that same audacious color perfectly offset a super neutral room.

We have to say poppy may have just become our new bold obsession!

  1. I always love adding pops of color to my home. I would never think of adding a bright red color to my space but these pictures have me rethinking the whole thing, haha. I honestly love the reddish/ orange cabinets in the kitchen. Very modern and playful!

  2. I love this thought, with home decor and fashion! I can’t wait to try to incorporate it into some of my spring outfits!

  3. Wonderful pick of color to create a pop with. I especially love that wall flower. Wonder where can I find it from?!
