Bringing the patriotic spirit into your home is as easy as hanging an American flag. Complement Old Glory with red accents, such as potted geraniums, a vintage cooler, and red-and-white linens.
Put your collection of blue-and-white dishes on display to celebrate the Fourth of July. For another nod to nostalgia, dress your table in linens from bygone eras -- especially if they feature patterns in red, white, and blue.
Create temporary vignettes with red, white, and blue objects to update any room for the Fourth of July. Here a red teacart is topped with blue-and-white transferware, red-and-white linens, and a sunny geranium. Above, a red-and-white dishtowel adds flair to the window.
Dress a bed in red, white, and blue linens for summer. The patriotic color scheme will last well after the Fourth of July.
Create a focal point with a bed dressed in eclectic linens. Here, a mix of prints and solids is unified by the use of apple red, denim blue, and crisp white hues.
For a DIY shade, scout out an old wire lampshade frame. Cut narrow strips of different patterned fabric in coordinating colors. Starting at the top, wrap a strip of fabric around one of the metal spines, then stretch it over to the next one, working your way around the frame. Simply knot one strip to another as needed. Continue down to the base of the frame, securing strips with hot glue.
Use an oblong blue splatterware metal container as a window flower box for bright red geraniums.
Hang rustic red, white, and blue watering cans for a fun outdoor decoration. Install screw eyes to hang the cans from sturdy hooks.
