In honor of Memorial Day, I can think of no better way to gear ourselves up for a long weekend than drooling over perfectly primped rooms of red, white and blue.
When planning a red, white and blue color scheme, you have to be careful not to go overboard. Paired with clean white walls, accents of blue and red provide an unexpected burst of color without giving the feeling you just stepped into a Fourth of July barbecue. Simple curtain panels in red and a pale blue sofa fit this living room perfectly.
For a cozy cottage feel, painted wood paneling in crisp white, and linens accented with blues and reds are perfect for any bungalow or waterfront home.
Red, white and blue make such a charming combo for kids’ rooms as well. The fun and whimsical atmosphere of a little one’s room provides the perfect opportunity to step up the Americana feel that naturally comes along with a red, white and blue color palate.
