Well, it’s October. And for a lot of my friends and coworkers, this is their favorite time of year. The air is cool, football is on TV, and the leaves are putting on a show. Me? I am just cold. Luckily October’s Color of The Month is a real winter warmer.

Bright Red Sideboard

That’s right, Scarlet Red. Or Bright Red. See, this month Kayla and Liz, well…they pitched the same color. They just called it by different names—Kayla sticking to Bright Red, while Liz went with Scarlet. Which honestly, is all well and good. Great minds think alike and all that. Except…

Bright Red Pillows

The accusations started flying. Kayla accused Liz of stealing her Pinterest pins. Liz called Kayla’s color name pedestrian. And just like that, we had a fight* on our hands. Let me just say…I can’t wait for you to see the video in a couple of weeks. It makes last months Battle of the Greens look like a tea party.

In the meantime, check out the HGTV Color of The Month Pinterest board and tell us what you think. Would you call this color Bright Red or Scarlet Red? Better yet, would you decorate with this spicy shade?

*Okay, maybe not a fight. But there was heated banter and a voice was raised!

    I'm not a red fan, never have been. If I had to name this color, I would call it Scarlet Red.

    There was a quiz that allowed you to click on pictures and then you would find out your style….then you could transfer it to your facebook timeline….does anyone know where I can find that?

    As a rabid True Blood and Twilight fan, I approve of this month's color.
