Seeing Red

red violet grey

{Violet Grey on Melrose Place}

While I only wear red from time to time and don’t have a stitch of it in my home’s decor, I have been seeing red lately! Known to symbolize love, passion, courage, success, and even rage, red certainly isn’t for the faint of heart. Perhaps it is because red is so inextricably linked with the Christmas season or because I have been feeling ultra-motivated lately, but like a moth to a flame, I can’t help but be drawn to this powerful color.

Are you seeing red, too? What are your thoughts on the color? Do you use it much in your home and wardrobe?
