Flowers are seen in the kitchen inside Zorica Rebrenik's house. "When I turned 18 or 19 there came a sudden, strong urge to wear red," Rebernik told Reuters. "There must not be a single dot of any other color on my home decorations or clothes.
Wearing shades like scarlet and vermillion gives her "the feeling of strength and power." REUTERS/Dado Ruvic
