Fixer Upper Inspiration - Touches of Red

Two of my favorite decor colors are red and black. I have black chairs in my kitchen and antique white cabinets.  I love that combination. I have black lampshades in our living room with a few touches of red here and there.

I was watching Fixer Upper, one of my favorite shows on HGTV, a few weeks ago. Jo had found some beautiful red pendant lights while antiquing. I loved the finished look!

Red and black complement each other so well. Do you like using certain colors in your home?

On the blog,, she offers the following advice on decorating.  (/

“Every room could use a touch of black.”
“Avoid hanging pictures too high, keep them at eye level (unless you are going to cover a large expanse of wall top to bottom).”
“Start with one inspiration piece (maybe a rug or a pillow) and build your room and color scheme around it.”
“Choose your paint color last to complement everything else in the room.”
“It doesn’t have to MATCH, it just has to “go”…”
“Add a touch of whimsy and the unexpected.”
“Pull the furniture out from all the walls.”
“Mix things up.  
This article also has some great advice.

  1. And suddenly I think I'd like some red pendant lights!

  2. I agree with Stacey, now I am thinking I need some red in my life, like right now! Loving the round up you did. I love watching Fixer Upper also and seeing how she stages homes. Every time I decorate my front porch, I always want to use red, but the thought of battling bee's because they love the color too, always turns me off.

    Thanks for sharing this, loved reading it!

    1. Thanks so much, Christine!
      You can't go wrong with a little red:)
