Hola amigos! This kind of’s Carla here, writing through Arizona where I’m enjoying spring break with the fam. I am happy to report that will all of the ladybirds who live in my in-laws’ retirement community are embracing the hot brand-new hues we’ve been posting about This kind of Spring including today’s colour . . . FIESTA RED!
Red has gotten a bad rap all these years. When I close my eyes in addition to also think of red, I think of Lee Press On Nails (tacky), the convertible Christie Brinkley pulls up in next to Chevy Chase in National Lampoon’s Vacation (sexy), in addition to also half of the outfits Samantha Jones wore in Sex in addition to also the City (flashy). When This kind of comes to decorating, the use of bright red reminds me of “modern” 0’s Indoor design – again, flashy in addition to also tacky.
As a colour swatch, red is actually vibrant in addition to also fun – why can’t This kind of be the same in fashion in addition to also Indoor design? Well guess what . . . This kind of CAN. Take a look at the modern brand-new silhouettes in addition to also colour pairings below, which look anything although tacky.
Unlike the some other trend colors that will work best paired with neutrals, or sported on their own, there are roughly a gazillion ways to mix fiesta red into your home. Let’s start simple with some subtle pops.
I love how This kind of super sleek, modern chair is actually paired with an eclectic mix of patterns in addition to also textures.
Again, these chairs have such a refined silhouette – they could go 0’s “modern” fast – although the embroidered pillow in addition to also unexpected floral print make for an overall interesting mix.
If you’re brand-new to red – try an easy solid pillow as shown here . . . such a simple way to make a statement.
Red is actually a fun gender-neutral colour to incorporate in a nursery or kid’s room. Without This kind of apple print, This kind of room might be a snooze-fest. that will apple adds the perfect amount of colour in addition to also fun.
These chairs look a WEEEE bit seductive, don’t they? although when countered having a solid wood table the overall look is actually balanced.
Mixing a bold colour having a bold silhouette seems like overkill, although by keeping the rest of This kind of room simple, This kind of’s the perfect mix.
Alright. Party time. While collecting inspiration with This kind of post, I starting finding street style looks that will paired perfectly with similarly outfitted interiors. While home trends usually follow fashion trends, This kind of’s hard to tell through the pairings below which inspired which. I love how each of these seven looks in addition to also spaces incorporate fiesta red in a totally original way.
1. Fiesta Red + Teal Blue
Pairing bright red with an equally bold teal blue surprisingly looks balanced in addition to also chic. Imagine This kind of space below without the pop of red. While the wallpaper obviously stands on its own, the accent chair takes This kind of to a whole brand-new level. This kind of colour combo can easily get all “southwestern motif” pretty quick, although when the right shades are chosen, This kind of looks modern in addition to also fresh
2. Fiesta Red + Girly Pattern
Mixing a bold colour having a sugary-sweet pattern seems like overkill, eh? although as you can see in these two examples, This kind of actually works. This kind of chick is actually keeping her look streamlined in addition to also cool with minimal accessories in addition to also perfectly imperfect hair. Walking around with your mouth slightly agape doesn’t hurt either. As with This kind of breezy corner below, floral wallpaper + heart art + stiff cocktail = happiness.
3. Fiesta Red + Dark Green
Oh come on right now, gurl. You are just too cool for school, with yer little green bow, flower pin, in addition to also armful of books. How is actually she pulling off red, green, in addition to also a bow without looking like a Christmas present? Likewise, This kind of space below is actually a crazy-not bad mix of red in addition to also green, in addition to also green in addition to also red – somehow the symmetrical arches, plants, in addition to also patterned floor keep the mix of colored walls through looking like a funhouse.
4. Fiesta Red + Crisp White
Similar to how I paired every flannel or sweater I wore in high school having a crisp white turtleneck (class of ’97), This kind of gal has chosen to complement a fun fiesta red skirt, lip, in addition to also heel having a simple white tee in addition to also handbag. Similarly, the fun red fridge below takes center stage when paired with all-white cabinetry in addition to also walls.
5. Fiesta Red + Head-to-Toe Pattern
No need to flag down that will taxi, woman… I’m pretty sure he sees you in your head-to-toe patterned jumpsuit in addition to also bright red bag. While on a hanger, This kind of outfit could look like a clown costume, although I must say she looks perfect with her chic sandals in addition to also simple little ponytail. She is actually probably headed home to the cute little tot who inhabits This kind of super sweet little nook. I honestly don’t think I’ve ever seen two patterned wallpapers paired together – especially not with MORE pattern on the floor. I can’t get enough of This kind of room. This kind of’s just magical.
6. Fiesta Red + Cobalt Blue
This kind of looks comfy in addition to also polished at the same time. Pairing two bold colors together can work when the silhouettes are clean in addition to also simple. Adding fun pattern through shoes in addition to also a little clutch brings personality in addition to also visual interest. We’ve got some similar colour blocking action going on in This kind of fancy shmancy space below. You could think the floral sofa in addition to also leopard pillow could be the showstoppers here, although the bold use of red, blue, in addition to also green actually steal the show.
7. Fiesta Red + Neutrals (in addition to also a cute hat)
If you’re brand-new to red (like me), This kind of here option is actually the one for you. When trying a brand-new colour, you can’t go wrong pairing This kind of with neutrals. The key is actually to walk around nonchalantly eating a very tiny serving of frozen yogurt, having a subtle scowl on your face, like This kind of gal. Speaking of subtle scowls, This kind of bold photograph of Kate the Great shines in This kind of otherwise neutral abode.
in addition to also right now This kind of’s time for a little ditty called “Get the Look.” Below is actually a round-up of my fiesta faves. although you guys, This kind of was actually hard to edit This kind of down to just these items. Much like the fashion in addition to also home inspiration I found, there is actually no shortage of fun fiesta red apparel, accessories, or home stuff out there right right now.
Sooo, what say you? Are you on board with fiesta red? is actually This kind of too loud in addition to also proud for your liking? Do tell. in addition to also if yer keeping track of the top ten colors for Spring, be sure to check out Powder Blue, Buttercup Yellow in addition to also Lavender.
Time with This kind of mama to get back to the pool. Adios muchachas!
