RED ZONE

*WARNING.....
RED OVERLOAD...

If you don't like the color RED...
be afraid...
be very VERY afraid....

DO NOT VIEW THE FOLLOWING:

I dressed the bedroom in it's 
WINTER FINERY....



Some of you will remember it took me a solid year to
get all the "parts" for this bed.
Social Security is stingy with the money they "let" me have
so I had to buy
ONE PIECE AT A TIME...

(that's the name of one of my favorite JOHNNY CASH songs.
*


The pillows are so neat as you can turn them for a different look if you want...as long as you want red flowery or black & white checks.....:)

hahhaaa....the above is a storage tub that awaits the STORAGE BLDG. out back.
When Deeds comes over, she uses it like a WINDOW SEAT,
props all those pillows up and reads a good book.









 My reading chair gets decked out with a bright red corduroy pillow. 

Summertime here at Sweet Nothings, this bedroom is whites and turquoise....
that color scheme seems to be 
cool/collected....

...bringing out the RED just seems to
warm up the room...
getting all cuddly/cozy for winter, which is not very far away....

I also LOVE having all this  
RED  when Christmas time is about to happen. 
I've never had a Christmas tree in the bedroom but this year, 
I am thinking I would love one....just a small one on a table with
LOTS of fairy lights..... 



 THANKS  SO  MUCH
for viewing  ALL  THIS  RED...

Because I just received several emails asking to see the bed's 
headboard and foot board better,
I added the following photos...

  1. The day hasn't come that red scares me away. You have used it perfectly and the other neutrals bring it all together.

  4. Your bedroom looks wonderful and cosy for the winter. I love the reds, would never have thought of it for a bedroom though. Your headboard caught my eye as well :)

  5. Your bedroom is so lovely and I adore all the check fabric, specially in red, it sure makes it warm and cozy to cuddle up in Winter! I have a red and white flower duvet I'm using right now with our goose down inside it. Cold nights here.
    Very pretty headboard too.
    Have a wonderful week sweet and lovely friend. Thanks for coming, to see you around here makes my day!

  8. It's a great color scheme! Is it cooler in West Texas? It sure is cooler here...a high of 40.° Brrrisk My bedrrom is still wearing its summer duds. Perhaps I need to rethink that.

    God bless.

  11. You know I wouldn't mind a little tree in my bedroom either. Would be nice to go to sleep next to glowing xmas lights. Reminds me of sleeping on the couch at Christmas time when I was younger

  12. I've gone red as well in our Stone House on the Hill in Greece. From wall paint to plates to a wooden spice rack that my mom used to use (now bright red). . .there is something fun about that color. Loved your post today - as always. Hugs, J.

  14. Your red caught my eye over at Cindy's party and I had to stop by. I'm always been a fan of red throughout the years. Just add some black and white and you have perfection...lovely!

  15. I have grey and white bedding but your post has convinced me to add a bit of red- especially for the holidays.

  16. Winter = Reds!!!!!

    Winter is colder.

    Reds are warmer.

  17. Just an addition.... How many of your Dear Readers are old enough, to equate "Red" with the "Cold War" and all-things-Soviet-Union? I know, I am showing my age. But gracious but that is what popped into my mind, when I read your blog title.

  18. Such a lovely room. I enjoy red at Christmas, but don't usually use it to any great extent in my house. We viewed new houses on a builder's tour on Saturday, and they were all very stark white with chrome (or brushed nickle).....they all looked very cold to me.

  19. Scared me at first, I thought you were going to warn us of someone called "Red" that was hacking blogs.
    I love all your red, Bj so pretty and comfy!
    I have had Christmas tress in my bedroom before, so go for it.

  24. I'm never afraid of red bj, since it's my favorite color. I have red in my bedroom year round because I love it! I love your quilt, pillows and all your accessories! It looks cozy and warm and perfect.

  25. You've not overdone the red at all BJ, I love how you've used it as an accessory for winter decor. The only place I have red these days is in the kitchen in the form of cardinals, my favourite year round bird.

  26. You know I am a white and neutral girl but I still love to see other colors. Your red and black is so stunning. Love it all.

  35. Oh my gosh, your bedroom is gorgeous! You are so gifted!! You could be a designer....or wee you in your younger...(no earlier-sounds better doesn't it?) days? If you weren't you should have been! I so admire people who have a vision and can put it all together!

  37. Not like red? Are there actually people who don't love that color? Well I wouldn't be one of them as you well know! I have always loved this bedding and it really does warm things up for Fall and winter. I have had a tiny tree on the dresser beside the bed for the last 3 years and I love it! I bet you'll love it too :)
