Would You Dress a Room in All Red?

Legendary Vogue Editor-in-Chief Diana Vreeland covered her living room head to toe in scarlet chintz, "like a garden, but a garden in hell," she said. It was a bold move but it matched her leading personality, and as she pointed out, "I can't imagine becoming bored with red — it would be like becoming bored with the person you love." If you're a person who loves red, I can't imagine it either, but I can imagine becoming bored with chintz.So, I was excited to spot this living room of designer Marsia Holzer on New York Social Diary, which was inspired by Vreeland's lauded living room. Instead of an exact echo, though, Holzer put a contemporary spin on the original by losing the chintz and using mostly solids. I love it. What do you think? Would you decorate a room in all one color?
