Oh Red! There you are!

Family room and rec side 003


I haven’t abandoned you!

A couple of posts back I discovered instead of my all time favorite RED being used throughout my home, I was noticing major signs of orange to orangey red in my furnishings.



Well, here is my lower level family room and as you can see RED is still very much a part of my decor!

Below is an old suitcase I found at an antique shop in Nags Head, NC.  Barb, were you with me?  :)





More Red



A Little More Red






Recently while at the Dallas Gift Market I read where the Hunt Club look is out.  I don’t care ~~ I love it!  Always in search of another piece and something that isn’t in the form of yet another picture.








My daughter and I had the Best time shopping for a bridal gown on Saturday.  A day to remember for sure.  This mother will say it.  She will be a beautiful bride. 

And yes, I cried.

Thanks for your visit.

I love all the red and NEVER pay attention to fads! I love what I love and that is that!

I can just imagine how special it was for the two of you shopping for a gown! Did you cry? With joy of course! I would have!

Have a great week!

Hi Donna, how are things your way? We're getting hammered with snow and wind. Guess the temps are suppose to plummet later in the day. I adore "all" your red. Gorgeous my friend.. I'm not one to ususally follow trends, just my heart... hugs ~lynne~

Red...Love it so much! I, too do not follow fads...I just choose the colors I love (and that MacDaddy likes, too).

Stay warm...

The hunt club look will never be out of style for me. I think it is a classic! I love the suitcase that you found at OBX.

I can't wait to here more details about the dress!!

I find that I like to incorporate punches of red in my home too :) It just brightens things up a bit!

I love all your reds and I love the suitcase!

Sounds like you had a much better experience bridal shopping than I had with my mom. :s Love all the red touches! Thanks for the visit. :)

Hello Miss Donna!! How exciting to have another daughter walking down the aisle! Of course you will be sharing pictures of the beautiful bride? Now I just love your reds and I agree about the Hunt look - it's timeless and classic, therefore, ALWAYS IN! Those window treatments are gorgeous as are the prints beside your wall units. Love it all!!!

What a wonderful experience you shared with your DD....have fun planning the entire wedding. My only daughter got married 2 days before Christmas & I enjoyed the process so much. Fond memories.

Regarding "Hunt Club" look being passe, I say "phooey" on them! Its a classic look with a widespread appeal. That's like saying Harvard or Yale is out of style! Hrumph...goes to show what "they" know. We don't follow "trends"...we prefer "timeless". :D

Hi Donna~
I am sorry I haven't visited for a while...I read about your winter white and the coat - I am the same way - I also have a thing for pale pink - I just need a FREE dry cleaner to be more brave, LOL !
Love all your punches of red ! I am
sure when my daughters get engaged one day , I too will cry ! Cherish the moments and take a ton of photos !
