Valentines Day Punch Uses Reds Whites & Paisleys

Punched up reds and whites aren't just for Valentines Day cards anymore. Interior designers are using reds and whites in home and office interiors. The ever traditional paisley is even enjoying a new look. When it is rendered in red and white, paisley is clean, crisp and graphic. Above, Alessandra Branca's office is done in reds and whites, shown in this photo from Traditional Home Magazine. Note how the this color palette is the perfect backdrop for black and solid red accessories.

Designer Kim Zimmerman used only red and white prints (including a paisley) from Les Indiennes in this Atlanta living room at right. Bottom line- it's a great way to add some zip to one's room. Design by Kim Zimmerman (photo from Cottage Living, Jan/Feb 08; photographer Jeremy Samuelson)
