With the gray skies which have enveloped my neck of the woods over the past few months, my eyes really are craving color, and lots of it. Red is a daring choice that can evoke feelings of passion, heat and energy — only what which help us get through these past few months of winter, no more? It is not necessary to use red as a major colour on your space to get the benefits; add a touch here and there to rev up your room and your disposition. — Danyelle from Dandee Designs
