Splash of Color-Part 3

This is my one of my FAVORITE things that we have done to our home yet! I am so thankful to my husband Matt for taking on my ideas with gusto!!

After we painted beneath our dining room chair rail and a GIANORMOUS wall in our living room, I had a BRIGHT idea!!

Why not bring all these colors together with a wide tall RED stripe around and above our fireplace.

I know several of you have seen these photos, but I wanted to post some before pics =)
Visit HERE for our home feature!!

A VERY BIG BIG BIG Thank you to my husband is in order here!!!

Color: Behr Paint and Primer in One-California Poppy (a true red)

That is dramatic and becomes a focal point. I love it!!! The yellow breaks it up and makes it warm. Great color combo! You've got great tastes!

The red looks great! It makes such a difference on that big wall to put the focus on the fireplace. Nice work.

It looks awesome. Draws you to the fireplace, highlights the contrast with the white and warms up the room. All of your accessories pull everything together nicely. Great job!

Mandy said...

Great idea! The contrast makes the fireplace stand out SO much more! Very pretty :)

In college I painted an accent wall red. It took three coats. HOURS AND HOURS AND HOURS of work!

I love the red. I'm so glad you are so gutsy with color!

Have you ever considered painting your fireplace and the tv cutout black????? I think it would really pop against the red.

Brilliant! The fireplace almost disappeared before on that huge wall. Now it's THE feature of the room! I love it! I've been tempted to try the primer + paint. It looks like it went on very well.

Very cool!I think it adds a bit of life to the whole room!God bless!:)
