Go Red for Women on National Wear Red Day

It’s National Wear Red Day! The American Heart Association instituted the first Friday in February as a day of awareness of heart disease in women. Heart disease and stroke kill 1 in 3 women, but with proper awareness that number can be much lower. Today we’re encouraged to wear red to show support and help raise awareness of preventable cardiac events and heart-related deaths. You can learn more about National Wear Red Day here.

With all the red-wearing going on, why should your home be left out? Check out these photos and products that will inspire you to incorporate red in your home.
