Since the 4th of July is right around the corner, I thought it would be fun to do a roundup of red, white, and blue for the home.
It actually sounds like a tricky color palette, doesn’t it? After all, you probably don’t want your home to resemble a flag.
Here are a few tips for successfully decorating your home with red, white, and blue:
- A little goes a long way, so start small. You can always add more.
- Avoid primary colors. Instead, use shades of these colors – such as a grayish blue or a rusty red – to create a more sophisticated palette.
- Use pieces bearing images of the flag, like the sailboat and pillow below, in small doses, or save them for the holidays.
- Look for unexpected ways to bring these colors into your home. For example, no one who sees the abstract painting below is going to automatically think, “Ah … 4th of July!”
