Red she said...

I have decided to to some redecorating out at the beach house this summer.
I think Coastal Nest needs a bigger splash of this gorgeous hot color.
Is there more a more passionate partner than red? I think not. There are people that would rather be soothed by calmness and harmony with all whites and pale pastels..Hmmmm. I think a punch of red does something for a room, and your heart..I crave it. Especially in a beach house.

Now to narrow down the paint selection.I want to go over these green floors with a bright awesome white, My man thinks Im crazy, but "whatever" is his mantra.. I love him for that..He goes along with 99.999% of the mad decorating skillzzz his lil' wifey comes up with..

See my drop cloth sofa slipcover over there? Shes holding up BEAUTIFULLY, by the way..

Love it but then again I would just love to be there I love the beach and can't wait to go visit our dear friends at the Jersey Shore in a couple of weeks.

The red is a great punch with your lovely green. I have trouble using red, I like it in other peoples rooms, but just never feel right with it. Probably because I don't use a big enough hit of it, and don't repeat it. Hoping you share more photos of changes you make. I love the feel of your cottage.

My hubby is a "yes dear, whatever you like" type of guy. Very kind and supportive. Just not very handy :)

I vote for lots of RED! I think bright bold colors are perfect for summer - also perfect for our gray NW skies. I like the crab pillow (we sell them on our site!)
