In 1991 a beautifully haunting film, "Raise the Red Lantern" was released. Set in 1920s, the movie (which is subtitled), tells the story of a young woman who becomes one of the concubines of a wealthy man in China during the Warlord Era. The movie is noted for its opulent visuals and sumptuous use of colors. The red lantern was symbolic throughout the movie, so let's celebrate red. Red symbolizes anger, passion, love, pain and sacrifice and those words describe the movie.
Have you seen the movie? Would you ever be daring enough to put red and another bold color together in your home?
