decorate a house in red

Ever since I was newly married I’ve had a slight obsession with red. I’ve owned a red dinning table, painted a living room wall red, and I still use a pretty set of red dishes daily. Although my style has changed over the years, my love for the vibrant hue has yet to dwindle. Just last week I revamped a vintage credenza with coat after coat of paint, turning it the “perfect for every holiday” red – here’s a peek!

Why am I telling you of this little love of mine? Because it is the perfect decorating trick to make your house holiday ready all year long! Instead of splurging on cheesy holiday doodads this year, find great red pieces that can be left up long after the tree comes down. Here’s how it works: replace the evergreen with simple gray and white hearts for Valentines Day, throw in shades of pastel pinks for a modern Easter spread, add sparklers and flair for the 4th of July, and bring in rich orange hues to welcome fall again next year.

Adding a few pieces in hues of red will make your celebratory decorating a cinch all year long. Just pick a color to accent and you are set –  Personally, I am loving the glittery hue of teal with my reds this season. And… I love that Target’s new holiday Threshold line seems to agree with me.

Here are a few favorite pieces that I’ve added to my growing collection this year: snow globe | metal basket to fill with wood now and flowers in the spring | glitter tree | berry wreath | stag book ends that look pretty with red covered books in between | tree pillow | and a classic holiday car pillow. Do you own any reds at home? Would you try this trick out? I’d love to hear your thoughts on it.
