What is Red Aesthetic?
According to merriam-webster.com, the word aesthetic means, “A particular theory or conception of beauty or art: a particular taste for or approach to what is pleasing to the senses and especially sight.”
A red aesthetic is something beautiful that is red in color.
Here’s some fun facts about the color red:
- Casinos and bars like to have a red interior because according to marketing studies, the color makes people oblivious to how much time is passing.
2. The color red is a stimulant and can cause restless nights if used in a bedroom.
3. In China, the color red symbolizes good luck, prosperity, and a long life.
4. Red animals are actually orange. The word orange wasn’t used until 1512 and that was way after our animal friends had been already named according to thelittlebookofcolour.com.

Here is the 25 Day Red Aesthetic Photo Challenge
1. Red Cardinal
If you’re lucky enough to have cardinals in your area, they make one of the most beautiful red aesthetic photos. Every time I see a cardinal, I stop what I’m doing and stare in awe.
You can photograph a cardinal on merchandise if you don’t have them in your area.
2. Red Barn
You can’t have a collection of red aesthetic country photos without at least one red barn in the mix.
If I had to name the one picture that conveys country living, a red barn would be my choice. This photo is beautiful in the snow.
3. Red Plaid Blanket
A closet full of cozy blankets is one thing that most people who live in the country have.
Red plaid blankets make my heart go pitter-patter.
4. Berries in the Winter
Red berries in winter make quite a dramatic photo with the contrast of the red against the snow.
5. Red Garden Boots
Red gardening boots are so cheerful. You can take a photo of the boots in action or a picture of them parked at the back door.
6. Cable-Knit Sweater
There’s such detail in cable-knit sweaters and blankets. When you get a close-up of it like this one, the texture pops off the screen.
7. Red Apple Trees
Apple trees full of red apples make the perfect photo to display a simple lifestyle.
Just this simple image has me dreaming of applesauce, apple pie, apple juice, and apple cake.
8. Red Hot Peppers
I love when farmer’s markets have piles of fruits and vegetables displayed on their tables. This display offers an excellent opportunity for gorgeous photos.
You can also find hot peppers in a pile at most grocery stores. Natural food stores are more likely to have a better photo opportunity.
9. Red Books
A pile of red books photographed at different angles will give you rich results for your red aesthetic picture collection.
Vintage books give you a fascinating photo with the worn edges.
10. Red Candle
I love the contrast of the apple and red candle in this photo.
Adding a ring of berries and anise along the edge of the apple gives this photo depth.
11. Warm Red Mittens
Red old-fashioned mittens wrapped around a mug with heart-shaped marshmallows gives you a window into the beauty of a simple life.
12. Red Gingham & Strawberries
Strawberries are vital to a simple life. Eating freshly picked strawberries is one of the sweetest pleasures you can have.
13. Red Dahlias
Have you ever really looked at a dahlia up-close? Every cottage should have a few dahlias sprinkled throughout its landscape.
14. Red-Handled Rolling Pin
Vintage rolling pins with red handles remind us of days gone by. Finding rolling pins with worn patina make beautiful display items in your country kitchen.
15. Red Brick Wall
Old brick buildings offer such an interesting subject matter for photographs. Now that I live on the east coast, I’ve seen a lot more brick buildings in everyday life.
I must have 20 photographs on my phone of various brick walls that I’ve come across. Each one has its own beauty and story to tell.
16. Red Vintage Truck
If you can’t find a vintage truck, any red truck will do.
This truck is dreamy. If you love the color red, then you love the wheel rims!
17. Cranberry Juice
Doesn’t this cranberry drink look delicious? This drink makes the perfect photo to show off the color red when topped with fresh cranberries and a sprig of mint for contrast.
18. Antique Red Wagon Wheel
A red wagon wheel might be a bit of a challenge to get a photo. I have seen some in antique stores that they use in the windows for display.
My aunt had a huge cherry tree in her front yard. I loved gathering up these red jewels and eating them straight off the tree.
Cherry trees are something that makes everyone happy, especially the birds!
20. Red Vintage Teapot
Here’s a red enamelware teapot with teacups with polka dots.
Vintage enamelware suggests an old-fashioned lifestyle, and using a rustic background shows off the red aesthetic of the teapot.
21. Dogs with Red Bandanas
A red bandana is a perfect accessory for country life. These two cutie pies know how to rock the look.
22. Roasted Cherry Tomatoes
Have you ever had roasted cherry tomatoes? If you haven’t, it’s time to grab your baking sheet and experience this tasty dish yourself.
23. Red Hurricane Lantern
Adding fairy lights to vintage hurricane lanterns makes a striking photo.
Old lanterns are a wonderful symbol of country life and look great hanging off a back porch.
24. Red Adirondack Chairs
These red Adirondack chairs look so comfortable to sit in and enjoy nature off your deck.
25. Red Vintage Quilt
Vintage quilts are a visual feast with the various fabrics used to make them.
I love the old ones with the hand stitching. You know a lot of love went into the quilt.
The red aesthetic in this quilt is bold and accented with other vintage fabrics that give this photo interest.
26. Cozy Red Socks
Photos of feet with cozy socks have become a popular photo to capture.
Taking a picture of your socks in front of a crackling fire is a fun way to show them off.
27. Red Fondue Pot
Fondue was all the rage in the 1970s, and it’s making a comeback.
You can find vintage fondue pots in an array of colors.
Red, orange, harvest gold, and avocado green were popular colors in the 1970s.
28. Vintage Red Typewriter
Can you imagine how hard it was to write a novel on a typewriter?
We’ve come a long way, but vintage typewriters are such a nostalgic way to decorate your office.
29. Red Maple Tree
The red maple tree is a spectacular sight to behold.
One of my cozy living group members planted a maple tree the minute she moved into her new house.
It gives her joy every year and was well worth the effort.
30. Old Red Window Frame
Painted window frames give a home character. You can still find old barns and outbuildings with red-framed pane windows.
