Red In My Dining Room

Having been married to a firefighter for the past 31 years, it would be natural that I love pops of red throughout my home.

My dining room is small, but has some of my favorite pieces in it.

My pie safe is home to quite a few red touches.




Even the drawer boasts a bit of red.

After Christmas, I changed up the top shelf of this antique dessert cart a bit, adding a small lamp. I like the red geraniums, even if they aren't real.

On the ledge of a mirrored window sit three old bottles, one with a sprig of red berries for a little flair.

Linking up with the following parties:


and Kim's

  4. I love red. My bedroom is red so it will be dark when my husband is trying to sleep in the daytime. I think I like it better as an accent color!

  15. I love all your pops of red. I wasn't able to even use red in my home until last year when I redid my kitchen. I had the worst colors (still do in most rooms). I love red, and my two favorite parts are the bottle in front of the mirror window and the vignette on top of the dessert cart.
