Red boutique retro design

What is it about the color red that I adore? I always get a rich and warm feeling when I see it in design. I pulled together some lovely red boutique retro design shots for you to enjoy after Valentine's Day. Who said we had to stop celebrating once the holiday is over...

Actress Scarlett Johansson in the Fall-Winter 2007 . 2008 Louis Vuitton campaign

Scarlett Johansson is stunning with that old Hollywood feel. It looks like she doesn't have a care in the world even though her robe is about to fly open.

I love the flow and uniqueness of the contrast of the red and pink. Plus all three of these designers used wonderful material that seem to cascade off the body.

This boutique styled hotel is one of my favs. The beautiful aqua blue accented with the red headboards screams individuality. But do you think you would get a headache if you stayed in the room too long?

I so want to be this woman in her pale pink dress holding a red umbrella. Can someone arrange this for me please?

While traveling, I always stop and stare at unique doors. What a wonderful accent to a home. Red and blue doors talk to me. Trust me, if our home is all white one day then I promise my front door will be red!

That was fun and I enjoyed our red boutique design pictures. Every day I seem to be coming up with new ideas for my future boutique. I hope you had a wonderful weekend lovelies. Get up to anything fun for Valentine's Day?
