I Saw Red

Sara is hosting a fun photo themed event all week. It is called I Saw Red and the idea is to post photos featuring red that will hopefully inspire and make other people smile. Here are a few red photos from my home. I do have red accents elsewhere as well and will hopefully have a chance to photograph them during the week. This party will be going on all week with participants posting as many photos on as many days as they like - it will be fun to visit all the participants. Sara has all participants listed at the link above.

Don't you just love to change your bed linens for the summer? I saw a photo in Victoria magazine recently that really inspired me and I hunted down the sheets and quilt above. They really make me happy and hubby loves them too! Sweet and simple and lightweight for the warm weather. I especially love the polka dots on the reverse of the quilt. Another bonus - the quilt is machine washable - great for removing little doggie footprints!

When I saw this collage by Melissa - I knew it would go perfectly with the new bedding. I'm really loving the red and blue combination. Our bedroom walls are painted in a neutral beige/pinky color and I was on a big brown kick for a while - everything in the room was shades of brown - definitely needed a bit of a pick me up and this color combo does the trick!


Cheers,
