Seeing Red

Does anyone have a color they tend to gravitate toward? I do. Red. Most definitely, red. It's a color that makes me happy. It's peppy. It's lively. It makes me feel good.
I had a red wall in our first house. I loved it! The front door of that house was red, too. We painted our television wall in our family room in this house red, but had to move the location of the TV a couple of years ago. The first wall was a little too small to be left red without a focal point like the television. So, I repainted the whole room one color. I need to find another wall to paint.
I chose a design kit for my blog that featured red heavily. My new couch is red. My toaster is red. My tea kettle is red. I bought new dishes last weekend and their color? You guessed it. Red. I have several red shirts. Strangely, I don't have any shoes. I think I need to fix that. Maybe something like these.
Red, you make me very happy!

Unless you are Steve... he hated my red cabinets which if I remember correctly you had a hand in encouraging me and helping paint them that way!!! :)

I really love red, too. My front door is red, my can opener is red. I wanted to get red dishes, too, but my sister-in-law has red dishes....another story. And I did really like Kristen's red cabinets. I've been trying to talk Russ into a red couch for the living room for a couple of years now. We'll see.

I love red too! I have WAY too many shirts that are red.

Kristen - don't listen to Steve. He had no idea what he was talking about.

Rebecca - would you like me to help you talk Russ into getting a red couch? ☺

Erin - I think I have at least 8, possibly 10 red shirts. I'm really thinking I'm going to get the shoes I linked to in the post. They're calling my name and I don't think I'm strong enough to resist.
