Today is my friend, Eimear’s (pronounced ee-mur) 30th birthday. As Eimear would readily admit, it’s not the easiest day for a birthday because one half of people already have plans and the other half avoid going out because it’s New Year’s Eve. I would fall into the latter group, unfortunately!
Eimear is originally from Co. Cork and Corkonians are a very proud group of people. Their county colors are red and white so I’m sure red features into the design of a lot of homes around Cork. So, in honor of Eimear’s big day, I thought I’d highlight a couple of rooms using red in different ways. I absolutely love red as an accent color. It’s great with a white room or, two of my favorite combinations are red and apple green or red and a rich, buttery yellow.
Red can, of course, also be lovely just on it’s own.
