Color Dose: Oxblood

Hello, LDV readers!  Kelly here with another edition of Color Dose.  Without a doubt, one of the 'it' colors in fall fashion is oxblood (or burgundy, if you prefer.)  It's all over fashion blogs and magazines and I've become quite the fan. The last time this color was popular, it often paired with forest green and mustard yellow (which is now considered dated.)  To incorporate it into a modern day aesthetic, I suggest pairing it with shades of gray, or even (gasp!) pink, which is my favorite unexpected pairing.  Here are a few pieces that will give your space a chic dose of this sophisticated hue.

Hi Frances! Thank you for the heads up. I'll be sure to check the site for any suspicious activity. I've had something similar happen before and it is so frustrating.
