One thing I heard over and over at High Point last week was how everyone was so excited about all the color in the showrooms. Evidently for the past few years the showrooms have been awash with shades of gray and white.
As someone who is passionate about color I was on high alert for colors I saw as trending. I saw plenty of blues and greens and also purples (no surprise since Pantone picked Radiant Orchard as their color for 2014). What I didn’t except though was a color that hasn’t gotten a whole lot of love lately and that is RED! Not the deep dark “oxblood red” of the past few years but big bold tomato red!
Take a look at some of these gorgeous showroom where Red was definitively the center of attention.

Possibly my favorite show room in all of High Point was this teal and red room for Hickory Chair by Alexa Hampton.

C.R. Laine showed vibrant tomato red with aqua. A hot/cool color combination I have always loved.

Wesley Hall paired red with charcoal and creamy white for this fresh looking showroom with fabrics from Tilton Fenwick.

The above vignette was also at C.R. Laine; Don’t you love that red leather stool and red coral art work paired with the red trellis patterned chair?

Mary McDonald used gray and white for her new line for Chaddock Home but look what she used as her accent color! If you look to the left there is the most beautiful red leather and brass side table. That floor by the way was one of my favorite elements of the show.
I have SO MUCH more to share but for now I wanted to spread the news that Red is trending!
What do you think of red? Do you use it in your home?
