Happy Fourth of July! This is absolutely my favorite time of year. Independence Day not only represents a time for family reunions and summer fun like barbecues, it also signals the perfect opportunity to contemplate how to bring those red, white and blue hues home all year long. Here are some looks sure to set off fireworks!
While a red, white and blue color scheme runs the risk of being kitsch, here’s a sophisticated, modern interpretation. Interior designer Miles Redd reveals how traditional yet contemporary the red, white and blue color scheme can be when you mix in bold black and dark brown furnishings.
This Astrid Chair from Anthropologie presents a very on trend way to bring home red and blue by showcasing the palette in a non-traditional Ikat print.
And this classic Windsor Love Seat also sports a 2011 twist with a blue ombre-lacquer seat.
Look to accessories as a way to introduce this patriotic palette in your home. This design by stylist Lili Diallo makes quite a statement with blue and white bedding against the red accent wall.
West Elm’s painterly Nature Sun Print Dessert Plates would be the perfect place settings for a non-traditional Fourth of July tablescape.
And this red and white Aegean-Printed Cotton Mat offers a strong design statement with its color, print and texture without shocking the senses.
Finally, this chic bedroom from Lonny is my favorite when it comes to featuring red, white and blue in a completely unconventional way.
