Using Pops Of Red In Your Decor

 Happy Thursday everyone!  When Thursday comes, I know that the end of my work week is near, and it is only one more day until Friday.  Friday is the one day of the week that I wear jeans to work, so that is always good.  And Thursday is Mr. 5 year old's last school day of the week, so I don't have to prepare his school stuff for the following day.  Always a good thing!

In case you didn't know, my favorite color is red.  It has been for over 20 years.  My bridesmaid's wore red in my first wedding, and whenever I wear it, someone usually tells me I look good in red.  I love to see pops of red in home decor, and I scoured the internet to find some rooms that do a great job of using the color red.  Here they are!

Very nice french country bathroom.  NOt 100% my style, but I can appreciate lots of styles.

This humongous island is to die for!

The rest of the pictures are from a blog that I follow every day,  My Fifth House.  Carmel's favorite color is red too, and there are pops of it all over her house.  she does a great job of bringing red into a room!
Lookat the wall art, it is a picture of every house they have lived in!  Great idea!

The letters and the stool are perfection.

Love this room.

I want this Ikea shelf.

If you have not checked out Our Fifth House blog, I highly reccomendit!  Carmel is very cute and talented, and has so much to share!  

Have you worked red into any of your decor lately?  I think little punches of it can work in almost any room. You should try it!  Unless of course you hate red, then you should definitely NOT try it!
