Red Rooms - Could You Have One?


I started off with my home office done in Chinese Red.
*Walls only*
all else was dark walnut with accents of olive green sofa etc.
Not to mention it was a true 'HUNT' room with huge fine oils of hunt scenes.
The riders wear red jacket...
they are leaping through the green forest....
you get the idea.
Besides this room being my office-
it was my favorite place to lock myself away in to watch a movie
or nap.
I would fall asleep immediately.
I love that room.


Dare I say what plain GENIUS red is with Zebra?



Love this one....
see the meander-greek key border ?

There is a certain coziness that red can give you over all other 
'neutral's .
I do consider it a High Brow gutsy NEUTRAL because
it is fabulous with golds, deep blues, creams, blacks, even dark dark shades of brown.
And of course....never forget green.



It can certainly be funky!



I am not opposed to a red kitchen either....
mixed with gold/yellow, black & cream.
These cabinets are a happy change from what is it out in the design scene at the moment.

Would you try just one red room to start ???


I did, and I ended up with two.
...LOVE THEM BOTH!!!

Rotating Kitchen - Red Dot Award Winner


How about a kitchen for a small space ?
Do you have 6 feet ?


This kitchen rotates to allow access to all the features......
and the it will completely close shut.
And yes it comes in other colors...
and other styles.

I thought this was pretty brilliant.
This company; CC Concepts LTD won the 'red dot design award' for this product.

It's German so you know it is quality.


Imagine the possibilities. 

Here's one;
Do you have a room over the garage you would rather have your guest stay in ?
....and not use your kitchen
...making their stay more independent ?

This kitchen only takes up 6 feet!!!!

WOW.

Apple Ice Cream Cups For Ice Cream

Hollow out apples and bake with cinnamon and sugar inside. 

After its done baking, fill with ice cream and caramel sauce.

.

I am not a huge apple pie fan.....
but
throw in ice cream and caramel sauce
then add
whipped cream.

This becomes  another story altogether.

And after all I will try anything if the presentation is inviting.

So, here is your starter kit!

....if you wanted to get fancy you could always apply ribbons and studs,
or paint it with eatable paint. Who knows how far you can go?
And add a small pedestal.

After all...
what would the chef at Palace of Versailles do???

CRAZY Right????
But I bet someone tries it!.

About Renée Finberg

I have been in this business since the age of 22.

I love what I do and cannot imagine my life without Design.

Design Challenges are great.

And because of those challenges

I have imported fine antique pieces from Paris,

Designed and Manufactured Furniture,

Created Fantastic Window Treatments,

And solved all kinds of spatial & architectural issues

With my unique style.

If I can't find it, I create it.

My rooms would make excellent movie sets.

I am a visual, tactile and audio sensitive individual.

Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.

Private Paradise
