Fall Decorating - Ready for Red

My Red Dining Room
My October Better Homes and Garden Magazine included this great article called "Ready for Red":
Whether you opt for carmine or crimson, scarlet or wine, in fashion or at home, this classic hue will make you feel warm, inside and out.

The article goes on to say that red is fall's "hottest" color.  Red is actually my all-time favorite color and I love how it brightens any space.  It can be used extravagantly  (my dining room walls are a rich two-striped red wallpaper AND the rug is a red chinese pattern) or in small doses - the article suggests thinking about red shoes as an accessory to a more neutral or black outfit.  Which brings me to my final point, red is a primary color and really does go well with just about anything else - think red and yellow, red and blue, red and green, etc. etc.  Red is such a great addition to any room!
