No, I'm not angry.  I am just seeing red everywhere - stores, homes, blogs.  I think Valentine's Day has got us all loving the color of love. 

So here is my personal collection of favorite "red" decor ideas from Houzz.com (of course).  I hope you can get a little inspiration here!

Love this great mirror!  I think most of the time some small touches of red can really liven up the place.

Though I do love this all red room as an office.  It seems like a space that would energize you as you work.

Super cute red bathroom that was featured on Apartment Therapy.  I love that tub.

Again - all of these bright red accents across the white cabinets really pops and makes the room feel more fun than frumpy.

Ah - now just the pop of red on that chair is so chic and charming!

I LOVE red outside.  Doesn't this picture make you want it to be summer already?

Kim at Twice Remembered might have one of the most coveted kitchens ever.  Love it!

I think this is a great example of how successfully red can be used in a really modern design.  I love the asian flare it gives.

This is probably the most popular picture that Domino ever did.  I see it all over Blogland and several people have created it in their own homes.

I love this!  I think a nice red piece in a room can really brighten it up.

Painting the back of built-ins and linens are also a great way to add a pop of red in the room.

I really love this painting and think the chairs really set off this dining set well.

So there you go!  Do you use red in your home?  Little splashes or full out whole rooms?  I want to know!

I do use red and I'm trying to get rid of most of it. I love the inspiration photos you chose though. Red and white looks gorgeous and in small doses red makes a beautiful impact. I have red and gold....and I'm so over it.

I love red! It can really make a room pop. I have a few touches of red in our living room and dining room.

Thanks for visiting me on my SITS day!

It all started w/a red KitchenAid. Then every countertop appliance (almost) in red. Then red roosters. Love the pops of red in my kitchen.
Think we'll continue to see lots of red, even though 'experts' say purple & turquoise are the colors this year.

I am really digging the red walls and red bathtub.

How funny that we did basically the same post with the same title on the same day. Don't they say that great minds think alike? LOL!
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my love of red post too.
