Red Hot at Market

By Christa Sorauf

We had an incredible time at High Point last week and spent 12 hour days meeting with our favorite vendors and scouting out new ones. And we found some AMAZING ones, which we’re incorporating into new projects and we’ll share the photos with you soon. One of the biggest trends we saw everywhere was COLOR — I’ve already blogged about Blue, which is the new Emerald, and Red was white hot as well. This season’s red is not the hot pinkish red of the past but a deep fiery red that gives an exotic edge to any room. Here’s some ways you can bring red into your own home, starting with this chandelier from Arteriors
