It’s not that red hasn’t always been a favorite color among stylemakers, but we love how it continues to evolve and reinvent itself in every possible category. Soon we’ll introduce gorgeous new RED collections from Paula Barnes and Faye Burgos (stay tuned for details on these) and we already know red-lovers can’t get enough of Pam Buda’s prairie inspiration!
So we thought we’d put together a visual of some favorite reds among the Marcus crew — the Brick, Madder, Tomato, Lipstick, or New Car red that excites each of us the most. (Click on the image to enlarge it.)
1- Stephanie is beaming in her first red car. She says it changes shades of red depending on the light, so it’s like she got a two-fer…
2- Mechelle, our resident foodie, prefers to eat & drink her reds rather than drive them – Red Velvet cupcake, anyone?
3- Lisa is transfixed by brick red Ghanaian batiks like this one from her personal stash; creases add to their authenticity.
4- Brandy shows off her vacation home – not really! (Photo: www.alexpapachristidis.com)
5- One of the new looks Mechelle is saving for later in the season – as always, she’s on-trend, pairing red with neutral greys & cream…
6- The Japanese maple on Lisa’s front lawn needs no explanation
7- Faye always loved the high energy of red. Her “Elvis” Beanie Baby is a a gift from her cousin, Dell that makers her smile
8- Laura shows off her most prized red shoes…and how well they frame her picture-perfect pedi.
9- There’s usually something fun and trendy to be found on Pati’s desk, at random. I couldn’t have planned this better if I tried…
