Go forth *boldly*...

I have this "thing" for red...no, I'm not mad at anybody or feeling aggressive, I just genuinely love this color.

And I've heard it's a power color...which kind of confuses me when I think about the term "red light district"...but that's a *WHOLE* other can of worms...

Anywho, I was just thinking that my interiors should have a shot of some bright red, but it's such a hard balance to strike...some of it is *amazing*...some of it is just *waaaaaay* too much...

Warning: Picture Overload about to commence!












So which ones are just too much and which ones are just right??? Now I feel like Goldilocks trying to make a decision...

And on a side note of going boldly in a new direction...(nice segway, right?)

So now that I have my iphone, I said I was going to try and do more pictures...

...so here's my attempt at some more pictures.

I thought you all might like to see the leopard cardigan in action for date night (c:

Can you tell I felt super awkward (which come to think of it, awkward is a weird word)? I had no idea what to do with my hands...


...fashion bloggers, I salute you, it's not an easy job.

I love a good spot of Red especially in winter. My favourites amongst these images are the second and third images. Have a nice Monday;-)

You are too cute! I never thought that I'd be much on red but some how I've ended up with it on my front door, my entry way console and in my dining room... and I love it!

Look at you Miss Gorgeous!!! I just now realized I've never seen a picture of you! LOVE the outfit. Now thinking I need to get my hands on that cardigan. Izzy has one and I'm jealous. Yes, jealous of my 2 year olds clothes :D

The red banquette is my favorite. I didn't see anything that was too bright, but I'm bucking the neutral trend every day with my turquoise walls.

Next photo requires jazz hands.

Now I want to turn my wire dress form into a lamp. Great photos. And yes, self portraits are awkward, strange and not easy. Still trying to learn!

Lovely, lovely choices. That island is a treat.

I just jumped into a colour called "Gypsy Pink" in my dining room. It was a shocker but it makes me smile everytime.

Red (when done right) is always my favorite! Don't know which image is my fave... maybe the Emily Henderson one? Love the leopard cardigan!

i love red, too...actually i love color in general...but i shy away from committing to anything i can't change down the road, or don't feel bad about switching out.

You look gorgeous in your cardi! I'm sure it was a great date night! And I can't get enough of this red! I wish I was more daring with color at home. Kelli

Such a cute picture in your sassy cardigan Aubrey! I'm in awe of the fashion bloggers too. I can't imagine taking all of those pics of myself. I've never been a huge red person, but I might have to reconsider...
