I see RED

When I look around our home I see red, everywhere. It is a favourite colour when it comes to decorating. Red Vintage cases, throws, cushions, table runners, flowers, French enamelware….this list is endless. I love red lipstick and jackets and shoes.

So it was no surprise that when we saw these red shoes at the very talented Honor Bradbeer’s exhibition a few years ago, I was taken. I really like the way she uses ink to create and disguise; to bring objects to life and make others hide, masked by the depth of colour.

We are having our home painted right now and it is a process of rebirthing a Victorian dame that has been lost underneath years of grime and bad decoration. We have chosen Aalto Endless¬†for the exterior and the door will be Dulux Red Box. You see as I welcome you to my home I want you to see Red too….
