Home Inspiration: Pops of Red

I never used to love red, but my friend Abbey always raved about how wonderful it can be. Tonje Holand's beautiful house in Norway helps prove Abbey's case. (Love those red lips!)

i'm all about red. i think it's such a vibrant, powerful color (which is why i chose a deep hue for my living room wall).

Anna said...

i love red in miniature doses. it adds such a good splash of fun to lots of things! : )

Amanda said...

I love red as an accent color. Just a little red adds so much impact to a neutral room.

I've also seen "red rooms" that I think are pretty cool. I tend to get overwhelmed by a lot of red though, they're just not for me. I like my red in teeny doses.

Gorgeous! My husband loves red so we have pops of red around the house, too. Most obvious and my most favorite: Our red lampshades in the bedroom.

karina Manghi said...

Touches of red are the best thing in deco!

Miss Jo said...

wow what a great little place. i love the teakish/50s furniture. red is gives a room some pow wow!

Dionne said...

I love little hints of red. It reminds me of all my favorite things like apple trees, where the color of the tree is dominant, but in the distance, you see the flecks of red from the apples. Lovely.

Laura said...

I love her cute outfit with the red belt.

mindy said...

i can't decide which i like better....the pops of red or that incredible looking sewing machine in the last photo!

Jenna said...

Red is definitely my favorite color. I love to see splashes of it here and there (Check out the movie Le Ballon Rouge). I also did my room in black and white with splashes of red.

Glad to see it is catching on!

erin said...

I m just starting pops of red myself!

thetiniestspark said...

ok, this post is making me feel inspired and much less lazy about getting off my arse and finally decorating my new place!!

Owen Says said...

I am very taken with this versatile way of integrating color. This really works for those of us with color commitment issues. These photos are fun and inviting.

Sara Christine said...

That blue sewing machine is just dreamy. :)

You are my fave... said...

I adore this apartment. And the pops of red.

And I love the idea for your bride's maids. The flowers in the hair would be fantastic.

Kosmopolight... said...

I'm all about the "pop of red" -- in design and in fashion. I'm addicted to red shoes!

automatism said...

What a great house — and love Tonje's fab personal style as well!

:-)

Edie said...

It's great to see someone with a style all their own. Love it!

Emily said...

I like this house and her dress! A clean white house with pops of red is my favorite combination.

saturdayjane said...

How lovely!

I feel like red can easily become overpowering in a room, but I love it used as a tiny accent. It really pops, and just serves to accentuate all of the individual touches.

Frau said...

I have a huge red star over my fireplace I love splash of red especially with flowers.

valerie said...

i like little bits of red here and there. i mean, my last name means red in spanish...half of my blog name is red for crying out loud. a tiny bit doesnt hurt...too, too much is overkill.

One Love Photo said...

So perfect. Red in little bits is quite special. Love this home!

Jessica (Hey Lola) said...

Everytime I come to your blog, I want to redecorate my entire house :)

Also, my verification word is "visaing." It's like a little blog nudge..."I'll be visa-ing my home redo project."

daydream lily said...

love!!! i agree with your friend, small splashes of red look great in a house. I have that same red pillow in the last picture.

Caro y Yann said...

I love red! I saw this a few days ago and i couldn't remember what blog was it! Thanks!

earmark said...

That girl has some great taste! It is so cute, and not at all over done. You can tell so much about her by her house! Great pics!

Carolina Eclectic said...

I don't know if I can pull off the red lips, but I do like using it in interiors. Love this apartment:)

lil songbird mama said...

I love all the red....so fresh!

Julie at BV said...

I think every room should have something red. It's just glamorous and sexy.


BTW red your article about house swap and I have to admit I never thought of it. But after reading it changed my mind. I'll probably try it some day.

lucille said...

Well i love your home inspiration
You are my inspiration !
Love your blog

LMN said...

I am such a fan of red as an "accent." I have it all throughout my house in small and big ways, and it makes me so happy. Vibrant, rich, warm. I loved these photos and the red throughout. Nicely done!

greavesdesign said...

it's got to be the RIGHT red and she's got it!

Jeanneoli said...

It is amazing what a little extra burst of color can do.

Cafe Fashionista said...

The room in the third picture is absolutely amazing. That is exactly the type of room I want to spend eternity in.

Darrah said...

Red does have a nice pop in home decor, but I'm always afraid it won't match. I tend to get matchy-matchy with concepts in the home.

Pfeiffer Photos said...

Pops of red is what I am all about--great pics, love her blog (and yours)!

simplesong said...

so lovely. its the perfect amount of red here + there.

Megan said...

I love the bright and happy pops of color throughout these photos-very uplifting and inspirational!

grace said...

red is THE accent color; it's vivid and rich enough to be noticed (unlike softer/lighter hues used as an accent) and in small, well-placed doses, red can change the energy of a room. I agree with your friend Abby

you just inspired my evening: i texted my girlfriends to let them know tonight is Red Lipstick Night

thanks jo!

grace

Marie-Eve said...
