If I'm going to wear (or exhibit) the color red, it has to be something extra special, super minimal, or downright kooky.  It's a color that has big impact in carefully edited doses (awesome), and can easily end up looking ....well, gaudy as hell.  But I say, if you (or your living space) are going to end up looking gaudy as hell, at least do it purposefully.  And have a shit ton of fun with it.

While specimens No. 1 & No. 2 pique my curiosity, I'm completely smitten by this wonderfully weird steak n' roses rug by illustrator Nathalie Lété (and check out her other items available at Anthropolige) via The Jealous Curator.  Shades of red for fall & winter 2013 via the Pantone Color Report.


  1. Definitely ways in which I'd showcase red. My favourite is the sweater.

    The Fashann Monster

  2. Its not always easy to "work" with red, but I think when a person decides to go red, it can`t go wrong. I love this top, it would drive my co-workers (and my bosses) crazy, and I would wear it to death!

    1. That's the spirit! Drive them crazy with your killer style <3

  3. Amazing post!
