CONVERSATIONS IN COLOR: HOLIDAY RED by Letitia Little

MORE HOLIDAY COLOR BROUGHT TO YOU  BY THE DYNAMIC AND POWERFUL COLOR RED!

 

 

One of my favorite  design elements is fabrics. A certain fabric and its colors can  be my inspiration for an entire interior design project.  It  becomes the color source and I will select other fabrics with compatible patterns, scale, texture and color to coordinate with it. Any of the above pictured fabrics would make a great color source. The red plaid silks with their lustrous color would make great curtain panels or pillows. Cover a loveseat in the red botanical, cotton toile. Add some pillows in the Ikat pattern and the black check silk. Finish up with a fringe or two. Wonderful, rich fabrics for the holidays and all year round. Fabrics: Schumacher, Kravet, Ralph Lauren, Stroheim

 

These whimsical lighting fixtures are fabulous! The white chandelier from Rotaliana looks like a snowball and is made of hand knotted polyester “bubbles”. The bejeweled ball is made of double layered, hand twisted glass pendants. From AXO Light. WOW!

 

How about a traditional style bombay chest in Shanghai Red with antique brass pulls. Place it in an entryway, add a pair of tall antique brass candlesticks  and a vase of fresh greens and red berries and you’ve got a very Merry design statement.

MORE INTERIOR DESIGN ELEMENTS IN RED!

 

A chair can be a work of art, individual and unique in line and shape. The fabric can be complementary or an integral part of the design. This Contemporary /Art Deco chair by Artistic Frame is called “Spats”. Its black frame is set off by  red ultra suede and black buttons.

 

 The newest looks in lighting: an elegant ice sculpture lamp with white parchment shade by Kravet.

CONVERSATIONS IN COLOR: HOLIDAY RED

Color! It’s such a powerful and exciting element of design. Did you know that each color has its own psychological meaning? Red evokes courage, passion, love, excitement, strength. And red says “the Holidays” more than any other color. I will be posting blogs throughout December about Holiday Red. Watch for them.

 

I love decorating with pillows. They bring so much personality to a room and it’s easy to change them out seasonally. These black and white pillows are fresh and stylish. The red ultra suede and red silk plaid pillows give the color scheme a punch and provide contrasts in texture. Add silver candlesticks and  touches of red on the coffee table and you’ve got an elegant look for the Holidays.

 

Decorating with greens and berries adds a natural element and candles bring in warmth and romance. So simple and elegant.

 

I found this book of Norman Rockwell illustrations. Nothing evokes the old fashioned sense of Christmas in America more than his images. “This holiday favorite features timeless art including children sleigh riding, families caroling and Santa preparing for his big night.” It has carols, poems and stories in it  too which I know my family will enjoy for years to come. One of my favorites.
