Color Game : Red+White

What could be more Christmasy than a red+white cottage? Let's look back at my imaginary cottage just waiting for Santa.

Don't you love crisp white with a little barn red? That got me thinking about a little mind game I play with any shelter magazine or on Pinterest. It's fun to put together a whole house with an unlimited budget just using pictures. This game can lead to all kinds of ideas you can use in your own rooms. Are you ready to play? To start, let's say someone gave you this little cabin. What would you do inside? I'd be in favor of white interiors accented with red - timeless yet modern. Let's look at how we could imagine the interior using photos from Pinterest.


Checked slipcovers unite high back chairs in the study.

Lush floral drapes in the living room.

Just a little red in the kitchen brings all eyes to the window.

Cheerful plaid curtains in the bath.

Fresh design for a bedroom.

Statement linens for the other bedroom.

So, there you have a little white and red cottage that I would love to live in. Hope you play my little game and let me know what happens. Enjoy your February, a month for red+white if ever there was one. This morning, even my cereal bowl agrees.
