Every year when Christmas comes along, I find myself wanting to incorporate different colors into our decor. Last year, I was mostly gold and cream but this year I kept gravitating back toward Red. It’s not a color I would normally decorate with, but it seemed so appropriate for this time of year.  I found little ways to incorporate the color with items I already had around the house with the exception of a few things. I pulled several books from the bookshelves like A Kitchen In France, Ralph Lauren, and French Essence and spread them out on the coffee table, on the bar, and in the kitchen. I also pulled out some old coffee mugs I bought a few years ago, and picked up some Santa ones from the Target dollar bin this year. I’ve picked up several inexpensive bouquets from Trader Joe’s which included red blooms and spread them throughout the different rooms. I added some inexpensive red cocktail napkins to the bar and also put out my Paris Cocktail Book for a little French festivity. Red is also showing up in my wardrobe as well with a few recent purchases of this plaid shirt, pajama bottoms, and earrings. I’ve included everything in the post plus a few other red items I am loving this Christmas. Next week, I hope to have a holiday tour of our house, a new festive cocktail recipe, and a holiday play list.  Happy Thursday.
