Red so wonderful— a whole lot of interior and art inspiration today– all with the color RED.
“Think of red like a spice—use it wisely and in good measure, and it will bring zip to your life.”

A small space is the perfect place to experiment with bold color. Cherry-red paint gives this window seat major impact, and extending the shade throughout the space makes it feel all the more cocooning. Take it over the top with a mix of patterns, from elegant damasks to edgy animal prints. Pull in a few comfy armchairs and a tray for beverages, and you’ll have a cozy and convivial drinks area that’s perfect for cocktails and catch-ups with friends.
