Thinking red on Valentine's Day

In celebration of red - and in time for Valentine's Day - here are some quotes on this vibrant primary gathered from and other sources. These ran along with my Sunday story in the Home & Style section:

“I love red. Red pants. Red suit. Red coat. Red anything.” – Brad Goreski, television personality/celebrity fashion stylist

“When in doubt wear red.” Bill Blass designer (1922-2002)

“Red is a terrific color for entrance halls ... . Even if you are one of those people who cannot relax in an atmosphere of strong color, passing through a brilliantly decorated hallway can be very pleasant.” – Mark Hampton, celebrated American decorator (1940-1998)

“I really love a red lip, especially when I am feeling tired, as it brightens my whole face.” – Miranda Kerr, model

“I always liked red. It’s a picker-upper.” – Nancy Reagan, former first lady (1921-2016)

“I painted one dining room red and I must say, the conversation became very heated in that room.” – Amanda Pays, actress

“I found a red Oscar de la Renta raincoat, and it’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.” – Dakota Johnson, actress
