Flaunt Your Red

Thanks to Nancy over at Home is the Heart's Nesting Place (f/k/a Southern Lady) for hosting Flaunt Your Red today. Please sure to go by her blog and visit all those that are "going red" today! I don't use alot of red in my home, mostly green, but I will show you what is on display now.

This is a table by my front entry.

This was my Valentine's display in my foyer.

I've always wanted a red room to match this piece of art I bought at Bombay probably 10 years and 3 or 4 houses ago. (Just ask me if I'm sad that store isn't around any longer! Especially their outlet store!) So, I had my powder room painted red, and it sits above the toilet.

(My flash was on the lowest setting, sorry!)

And finally, this is also in that bathroom. I had a terrible time trying to take this photo, and finally put the camera against the wall, but I still couldn't get the full length of the piece in the photo. I was kind of going for a tropical feel in this bathroom. (I uploaded all of my attempts - I know it looks like I was tipsy, but I promise I wasn't!)

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to visit everyone else that is flaunting red today! Thanks to Nancy, for hosting this nice party for us!

***** My blog has been messing up royally. For a while, you could click on Nancy's photo at the top right of my sidebar, and go straight to her blog. But, now when you do that, it gives me a DNS error. Can you hear me scream??? I've tried to fix it, and it's not cooperating, so please go and visit her blog by clicking on the link contained in the text of this post. Thanks so much! :O)

Your reds are great. Isn't it just the best in any home? I love your picture that has moved with you.

Nancy said...

Oh, has blogger been causing everyone problems lately or what!!!! I 've been screeming all week about one thing or another!
Okay~ back to RED...I loooove that heart wreath, I have always wanted one of those but never could find one so full looking as yours! Did you make it? It really is beautiful! I love all your REDS.

~Beautiful home and Reds Tar!

I am so loving your wreath and print from Bombay Co!
I loved that store too.
It was so cool. Tear...Sniff...

You're right. Blogger has been acting up in all kinds of ways this week.
I still can't figure out where all my blogs went on my profile page...GRR..

Thanks so much for checking out all my Reds and my new blog look.
I really am enjoying the change. Yeah!

I love red, and your bath is gorgeous. I was sad to see Bombay go too, they had the greatest sales. And you are not the only one having problems with blogger lately, it's turning my hair more grey than it already was. Kathy

I Know it! Blogger is insane right now. My last psot would never update and word verification is anight mare trying to leave comments:)
Doing a post it wouldn't let me delete but I could
Anyway I love your red. The wreathe is pretty:) as is your picture. I too have a couple red walls as accents.

A pantry in my kitchen and also an wall in out my basement family room is painted red.
Hopefully we won't be seeing RED anymore with Mr. Bloggger;-)

Boy blogger is flippin' out. I was at a fellow bloggers earlier and I could not get out of the blog! Everytime I tried to X out, it opened a new window back into that blog. I couldn't get away!!!
Your red is beautiful. Love it. I don't have any red in my home but you are makin' me want some.

Lynda said...

Beautiful!! I'm in red heaven with all of these great photos everyone is sharing!

Beth in NC said...

LOL ... you did look a bit tipsy with each picture at a slightly different angle. Ha. I LOVE the red powder room and the picture. Your Valentine's Day decorations were pretty too!

Come see mine.

Love ya!

Bo said...

Hi, your front door & side lights are GORGEOUS! Now on to the reds...I love the red powder is so regal looking...oh, & about Diet Coke...I've heard about aspartame before, but as many diet cokes as I've drank in the past & present, I'm probably a goner...Eeek! ;-) Bo

You are looking fabulous in all of your red. I miss the Bombay store, too.

It sounds as if Blogger is causing problems for everyone.

Red my all time favorite car is red, 2 red leather coats, red hi-top sneakers and I just painted part of mybedroom red....Love it.

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

I'm thinking the gremlins have gotten hold of Blogland! Everybody is having troubles. Is that a real amarylis (sp?) in your entry? Real or faux, it is beautiful! Loved your pictures of the bathroom - so pretty (even if you were tipsey)! laurie

Love the red room! I can't get enough of it. I did have to put a moratorium on the black and red in my house. I was way overboard. Now I am adding some cream and deep rustic oranges!
Thanks for sharing, I love your artwork too!

Lorrie said...

Great reds! Blogger has been giving everyone fits lately--must be gremlins!

jeanne said...

Tardevil, better late than never. I came over from Bo's post to see your red. It was worth the visit. Your red is awesome. I know you were disappointed in your photos of the iron piece but it is clearly beautiful against the red wall. Very elegant. Your touches of red in your home are lovely.

Have a great weekend.

I'm sorry everyone is suffering with this stupid blogger stuff. It's making me nuts...I loved seeing your reds. I wish my day wasn't so messed up and I would have joined in!

Kristens Creations said...

Thanks for checking out my red! Your reds are really pretty too. Love the wreath on the mirror!

I hope they got you good and numb before they started cutting, ouch! It was bad enough with my tooth! It's fine so far though, I guess I had to do it to get rid of the pain! Kristen

Liz said...

Oh Pretty Reds! I have been having a few issues with blogger too. I think that it has something to do with google being down early this week.

Hopefully they will get it under control soon. We simply must continue to post and comment! LOL :)


justabeachkat said...

Love the red walls!

Mr. Blogger misbehaves sometimes...believe me, I know!

Happy Sunday Hugs!

Lynette said...

Theresa @ Take A Sentimental Journey said...

Wow ! love that beautiful red flower and love that painting also. I sure miss Bombay also.

Shelia said...

Oh, I'm still hearing you scream! I'm having trouble too today! I can't leave a comment on so many of the blogs! We're going to have to punch blogger in the stomach!
Be a sweetie,
