    I painted an accent wall in Sherwin Williams Red Obsession with Pearl finish, which has slight shimmer to it, over a gray primer. It took 3 coats of paint, but it was worth the effort! The wall is stunning and V E R Y similar to the color shown.

    Every time I see this room, I want to watch Charade, my favorite movie in the whole world. It pairs Cary Grant (be still, my heart) and Audrey Hepburn. And doesn’t she look fabulous against red? As you will see, the thing about red is that it is as classic and multifaceted as Hepburn herself. There is simply not a design style that red doesn’t work with.

    As in this red dining room …

    Red is almost never a bad choice for a dining room. It stimulates the appetite; it’s an excellent backdrop for most woods; it glows at night; and banks of candles look wonderfully romantic against it. So what better time to try this brave color than around Valentine’s Day? If you find it a bit overwhelming, repainting is an easy (if tedious) fix.

    Many restaurants use red in their dining rooms. Many color therapists believe red stimulates appetite, but it is also said to stimulate conversation.It's a bold choice for walls, but if you pair it with one of its perfect partners — white — you can achieve a dramatic and livable effect.

    And for those in a more conservative state of mind, who can forget Nancy Reagan red?

    Keep it simple. "The impetus for using an iconic print of Audrey Hepburn was largely based on our feeling that it was a dramatic piece that shared many things in common with the space," says designer M. Charles Beach. "We chose a deep red for the walls with white trim and simple white draperies, which created a space replete with contrast and punch. The simplicity and austerity of the Hepburn print fit in perfectly with the restraint of the overall design."

    Just like a red dress or stilettos, a red room can be elegant and sexy. This is a great color for a dining room where you want guests to be comfortable, attentive and ready for a lively conversation.

    In this dining room, Ms. Hepburn peeks over her shoulder at guests, enlivening their dinner parties with her intriguing charm.

    Roses are the most popular flower in the world. They make a huge impact on the beholder, both visually and scent-wise. Roses are the ‘it’ flower have been; prolific in poetry, emblems on shields, and they are the symbol of romantic love. It is not just how they look but their delicious scent that make roses that make them a timeless classic for any garden or vase. The general rule with roses is the darker the rose petals, the stronger the scent. Pink and red roses have that traditional rose perfume. White and yellow roses can smell like violets and lemon, while orange roses can smell of fruit and cloves. Chad Kremp, a Vice president of Kremp Florists speaks of the chemistry behind this famous flower: “phenylethylamine is a chemical in roses that gives them their signature scent. This chemical holds an amino acid that slows the breakdown of beta endorphins; beta endorphins are hormones responsible for making us feel euphoric and in love.”
