A change of colour scheme is one of the easiest ways to revamp any place, if you are on a budget … well accessorising is even easier as long as you pick the right pieces. Adding a splash of colour in the form of well thought through items can easily turn your nice looking room into an amazing one.
I love red, I always have and I assume I always will.
Red is the colour of fire and blood, so it is associated with energy, strength, power, determination but also with love and passion. Red is a very emotionally intense colour; it’s energising, it excites the emotions and motivates us to take action but it is also strong-willed and can give a confidence boost to those around us who are shy or are lacking in will power.
A few years ago, we decided to accessorise our kitchen in red… it is still a work in progress. We bought a few nice pieces but there is always room for improvement. I have my “wish list” and hopefully one day I will collect them all. If you love red as well and your kitchen might benefit from some sprucing up, have a look at my Pimp Your Kitchen Gift Guide.
