In My Red Era

We recently painted the trim and hallway doors the most dramatic shade of red, and I find myself making excuses to pass through this part of our house. It’s so rich and romantic and glossy and inspiring. It’s like the hallway is wearing lipstick. She’s feeling herself 🙂 I can barely remember what it looked like before.

As a reminder, we’re incorporating the same “Preference Red” from Farrow & Ball in our mudroom (mood board above). The hallway doors lead into this room, and it’s like we’re already rolling out the red carpet.

This isn’t my first red era. In our last house, we painted our music room “Fading Twilight” from Benjamin Moore. This one is more muted, with violet and brick undertones, and I loved how classic and timeless it looks. Like a room from museum.

I especially love how this paint color transformed in different light, at different times of day, from different sides of the room.

Roman Clay: Portola Paints Meritage | Trim: Meritage in Satin Enamel | Bathroom Sources

Just before Christmas, we painted the upstairs bathroom with Roman Clay — a beautiful color called “Meritage” from Portola Paints. It’s so burgundy and Old World and beautiful. Roman Clay was harder than I thought it would be! But I’m already dying to do this somewhere else in our house.
