Decorating with Color: Red Exteriors

Thursday, February 15th, 2018

Red is a permanent fixture in many of our country homes. Darker shades offer more rustic charm while brighter shades can be more whimsical or modern; whatever your preference (including mixing the shades together!), this color adds life to indoor furnishings and decor. But today we want to share some ways you can (and should!) incorporate red externally, and if you have some different ideas or images of how you use this color in your home’s exterior, leave a comment or drop by our Facebook and Twitter pages.

Simple touches like lawn furniture or a door add a delightful
pop of red when you don’t want it to be the dominant color.

Exterior accent walls can give your home a unique look, especially when
they are done in red. Painting the covered part of this porch red brightens
the space without, again, making it the dominant exterior color.

One of the most classic looks here in New England
and on homesteads across the country is the red barn
and white farmhouse. Now, of course not everyone has a large
barn they can paint red, but you can apply the same idea to a garden
shed, tool shed or even a pool house to get that timeless pop of color.

Coordinating red with natural colors works to tone down the bright hue,
while maintaining a welcoming country look.

Of course, you can always go big with red by touching every exterior wall
and emphasizing the color with white trim – another classic rural look.

From two of our most treasured furniture collections, these pieces are handcrafted in the USA and bring as much function as style to your most treasured rooms. The rubbed finish of the country red Pine Hutch completes the rustic look created by the two bead board cupboard doors and their classic black hinges. For a family room, dining room, office or other cherished space, there is ample room on the shelves and inside the cupboards for your treasured home accents and necessities.

A favorite from our Shaker line is the Coffee Table, and in cranberry red this piece is simply divine. A perfect complement to the stain top and drawer handles, the sleek red finish makes a charming statement in a family room or den, while the table itself provides the perfect tabletop surface for mugs, books and magazines. Keep smaller accessories stored in the drawers so all the attention can be turned to this beautiful table.

The club chair is a classic, casual profile that caters to any room’s style and the stain resistant back and cushion are a breeze to clean. Perfect for a reading nook or cozy sitting area and for your merry lifestyle.
