Albert Hadley once said that there should be at least one red accent in every room. I couldn't agree with him more. Red is such a powerful color and can add such energy and drama to a room. Red walls add sizzle, while red furniture catches your eye. Red can be used sparingly, if you choose, through displays of books with red dustjackets or bunches of red roses, for example. Below are some photos of rooms designed by various decorators. Some use the color proudly, such as Miles Redd, while others use it in a more subtle way. However you choose to use it, perhaps you might find some inspiration.
1 or 2 drops Noilly Prat, Chambery, or Lillet dry vermouth
Lemon peel or olive
Stir well with 3-4 cubes ice. Pour into 4 oz cocktail glasses. Twist a lemon peel over the drink. Some stop at that, and forbid dropping the peel into the drink. Others, of the old school, replace the lemon peel with an olive.
