Awhile back I posed the pressing question…red v. orange in home decor? I know…other pressing questions really do exist…but at that as my mind wandered…as it does so often, I thought, “I must wonder out loud…which color is better red or orange? I must ponder this…”. Bizarre I know…but I did manage to spend a bit of time thinking about that question. I know I could have been doing some real good in the world in even the ten minutes I spent way back when I first asked this question…but instead I was probably sitting in my velour Juicy Couture sweat pants thinking “Huh, I wonder what I like better, huh, hmmm, huh…red or orange? Hmmm…” Well, the bad news was, I didn’t have a definitive answer back then…but now I do! Hoorah…we can all breath a sigh of relief. The answer is here. (P.S. do not laugh at me regarding the Juicy sweat pants I wear as my around-the-house garb…I really find them so comfortable…so comfy that sometimes I even sleep in them…is that bad???).
Anyhooo….the answer…yes the answer…
Red. Red. Red is my answer. I like red. The trends say like orange I’m sure…I don’t care…I love a wonderful vibrant red in all aspects of design including fashion.
Wouldn’t I just love to wear this amazing gown to a holiday party this next month? I’d show up in this gown even if they said it was a hay ride and plaid flannel shirts were the recommended attire.
In decor, there is nothing like a bright red door to cheerfully welcome visitors inside. I even like these red cabinets…the rest of the kitchen has wood grain cabinets but then the stove area pops with this vibrant red.
