color crush: oxblood

Oxblood is one of those colors that has many definitions and shades. 

Some think of it as a deep red with splashes of purple and blue, nearing burgundy or berry. Others like to think of it as a chocolate brown that is closer to the color of, well, blood.  

It's even masqueraded as dark as a plum and as light as a sheer merlot. 

As Thanksgiving nears, why don't you give oxblood a try?  You can wear this most luxurious color in any format:

Or you can mix it into a room ever so slightly:

Or, if you love it as much as ICDC, you can shape a whole room around it:

 You can even try the color in a kitchen!
