Name: H00820
Brand: Fine Paints of Europe

I have the perfect color for my second annual Christmas Red column (here's the first from last year): H00820 from Fine Paints of Europe.

My clients on this project had already passed on two other painters when they met me; painters who wanted to paint this room beige or buttercup. I suggested vermilion, and got the job...

I've seen more red rooms than you might imagine over the years, usually in kitchen and dining areas, but also dens, floors, doors and cabinets. There's a color red for everybody, in a range of specific hues to suggest that red has limitless possibilities. The color here is pretty much a red right out of a primary color wheel, and draws all the different period pieces into one group.

So get in the Christmas spirit and give yourself the gift that keeps on giving. And thanks, G, it was nice to finally shoot with a real camera.
