Red & White...oh so nice

Red!!!! I think that's the real reason I love fall...cause then I can start adding red back into my wardrobe. But I think the same principle could be applied to our homes too! I've been drawn to bold rooms with contrasting color, and today I thought I'd share some red and white inspiration...hope you enjoy!



Love this room all together from the Madeline Weinrib zig zag rug..to the Suzani inspired bench fabric from "Dzhambul" from Brunschwig & Fils. (Home of Krista Ewart featured in Domino, June/July '07)



Red and white polka dots...who would have thought. I am in love with the simple white drapery as well with the red trimming. (Designed by Richard Mishaan, featured in Elle Decor, June '07)


This room is head to toe hues of red, combined with a pink wall...and I love it! (Photographed by Eric Piasecki, featured in Blueprint, Sept/Oct. '07)


Glamorous never looked so comfy. Just love this home featured in the Rooms to Inspire book, designed by Martyn Lawrence-Bullard.

Well, I think you've found the best examples!!! I particularly love the red and white room with the pink walls. The pink just adds another dimension and makes the room very rich and warm.

When I hear "red room" I usually think of those horrible red walls from the 90's. These are so fresh and light with the right amount of white to balance it out. I heart the zig zag rug and simply bordered drapes.

I think you're right POC, adding that pink really makes the difference :)

I love red clothes, but for some reason I never turn to the color for decorating. Now I'm inspired!

I'm all with you on the Red. I am loving it. I rewatched the movie last night "What Women Think" and I was totally mesmerized with Helen Hunt's office all done in red furniture and a bold red wall behind her desk with black and white pictures. I seemed to have missed that on the first viewing, so Red must be in the airwaves.Good Post, excellent pictures.

Like them all but the Blueprint room is so comfy looking. I like the chairs in these pictures as well. Thanks for the inspiration.

i never used to like red that much, but my boyfriend's house has red walls in his living room (kind of dark, like burgundy) and it's beautiful. and i LOVE the rooms you chose here! i think i'm changing my mind on red:)

They're all great. I LOVE a bit of red in an interior, even if it's tiny. I think I love the first image most, especially that chair!
