color my world — barn red

I unapolo­get­i­cally love color, espe­cially rich col­ors with depth and warmth. Need­less to say, I have not been on the greige band­wagon these last few years! One of my favorite col­ors has always been barn red, per­haps because the ear­li­est home I remem­ber as a child was barn red. Rich, lus­cious red works in tra­di­tional or con­tem­po­rary set­tings, in bold "all-in" ways or sim­ply as an accent to add depth to a space. Are you a red lover?

One of my faves from Black­burn Architects:

Can't han­dle an entire home in barn red? Try just the trim:

Deli­cious red wows in the kitchen:

Ready to embrace red? Wrap the entire room in high-gloss:

Mix heavy doses of red for seri­ous drama:

Or warm a con­tem­po­rary space with a rich red accent:

So many ways to intro­duce this hue into your home! What would you do?
