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.

    OH WOW! The Wearever, loud, obnoxious bunny is showcasing here that's for sure. Being champion with across the board in marketing unattractive, sensing uncomfortable and in your face ugly cluttered visual displays. I can get behind the Navy blue on white sheets and dishes, the rest leaves me not wanting of more of your repugnant combinations.

    For me elegance goes hand in hand with many attributes. Furniture shapes, elements, colors & textures, visual & displays coordinated of items selected. Coordination with permanently fixed items in a room with walls, ceilings, & floors should render a cohesiveness, flow without awkwardness. Unification with an overall feeling of satisfying not alienation as given with your chosen selections. You might look for a new line of work as it's definitely apparent a short lived likable design solution with your reaching. I surely would not use a designer of Miles Redd, Lily Dialo, or Lonny with wacky approaches or have any want of them, but I can like the shapes and that's it.
