Vintage Red

Last year when Art and I were working on the One of a Kind booth and I was struggling to come up with a suitable colour to stain the woodin the end I just chose the colour you see here.  

Since then I have been trying to understand more about the "why" of that colour. I have always gravitated towards turquoises for some reason but the clothes I wear are either black, brown or charcoal grey. 

So where did the red come from?

With the suggestion of old school furniture (as Art's client had mentioned), I began to look at the vintage books I have and there it was! I have begun to find it in other "props" too.
