Strawberries - fresh, ripe from the field - are the most amazing fruit. Warm from the sun, as soon as you bite into it the juice flows and you know it is the beginning of summer. Not only is it the "taste" of summer, but it is the color that lets you know it is ready to eat and enjoy.
I love red as an accent color in my home. I use it with pillows, bowls and art work.
Red can be difficult (too bold) to use on walls, but soft reds work great for small bathrooms and offices. On the BM site, a search for the color family-red, gives you hundreds of choices - but try something like BM Rosy Apple or Merlot Red.
