Color Me Red: Inspiring Red Rooms

Anyone remember that short film, The Red Balloon (Le Ballon rouge)? It came out in the late 50s, about a little boy who finds a red balloon that follows him around (we won't spoil the ending). Anyway, long story short, we recently watched the film and was enamored by the visual impact of red against the blues and greys of Parisian streets...which then inspired us to dig around for some brilliant red rooms! Take a look at some of photos after the jump--oh, and don't forget to turn on your speakers: we've also included a bonus track to set the tone...
