Senior Market Editor Kai Ethier shares which hue she’s crushing on right now.
Say hello to red’s cool cousin, oxblood. A rich and sultry mix of burgundy and brown, this shade gives rooms a hit of spice that’s perfect for
hygge season. A swipe of oxblood in an otherwise neutral room will give a punch of personality, or take a more-is-merrier approach and paint all your walls in this sophisticated and warm hue.
How To Make A Big Statement
