Seeing Red

Valentino's fame is marked by his collection of dresses, Elizabeth Arden's spa door is painted a vibrant glossy hue, and never before have women (and possibly men) been infatuated with the underside of shoes until Christian Louboutin came along with his red sole.

      



As we celebrate Valentine's Day this weekend, I thought I'd share a few of my favorite red inspirations...have a lovely weekend!


Pair of Red Lacquer and Steel Commodes by Willy Rizzo c. 1970, Mallett Antiques



Chinese Export Side Table, Frederick P. Victoria



Oval Drum Shade Lantern, Charles Edwards




I'd be remiss if I didn't share the library I love....Albert Hadley's creation for Brooke Astor...10 coats of the oxblood red paint!

   




A favorite room at the Covent Garden Hotel in London



A lovely red and pink study by Miles Redd
