Red, White, and Blue Decorating Ideas
Stars and Stripes Forever
When you have a statement couch like this one, you don't need much for the rest of the room. Keep the walls white and the other furnishings simple. Add a few solid blue pillows to your sofa and you'll have subtle patriotic decor that you can keep up all year.
Patterns with Punch
The red, white, and blue in this bedroom hardly read as patriotic. When paired with another theme, such as rustic cabin decor, the iconic colors take a backseat. Choose one to be your bright, stand-out color, and let the rest fall in place wherever they fit.
Fun and Festive
This living room brings a glamorous spin to the traditional red, white, and blue color scheme. With a gold framed mirror and luxurious velvet chairs, it looks more upscale than most patriotic decor. Small doses of pink and white tame the primary colors.
Time to Celebrate
Basic red, white, and blue furniture looks subtle when done in small doses. This screened-in porch instantly becomes ready for summer with the addition of festive throws, pillows, and planters. Use black accents to ground your color scheme and make it more sophisticated.
With a nod to America's past, this red, white, and blue bedroom is casual yet charming. Primitive-style artwork hangs above beds dressed in striped comforters and blue and red pillows. A basket of baseballs and a vintage dresser serve as odes to the past.
Oh, So Simple
Accessories make it easy to decorate this eclectic living room in a patriotic way. The wall is already painted a deep blue, so all that's left is to add festive flowers and red and white pillows. Keeping the sofa and area rug neutral keep the color scheme from being too overbearing.
Dining with Patriotic Flair
A white dining room is a perfect backdrop for pops of color. This summer dining table has been embellished with posh red, white, and blue accessories for a seasonal brunch. A hanging American flag is the finishing touch for this home's patriotic decor.
Modern flair mixes with American pride in this shared children's bedroom. Instead of using intense flag colors on the walls, plain white keeps the room airy. Bright red and deep blue bedding stay true to Old Glory's colors. An upstairs reading nook adds a fun touch to the room.
Interpret the Image
Just a few pure, simple forms in red, white, and blue carry the theme in this traditional room. The room's neutral coloring is enhanced by a vivid red, white, and blue throw. The effect is festive but not overwhelming.
Patriotic decorating ideas aren't limited to the summer months. Channel American spirit year-round with red and white cabinets, blue walls, and complementary servingware. Fresh greenery and open shelving break up the scheme.
Put open shelving units to good use by proudly displaying your favorite American wares. Look for glassware in red, white, and blue color schemes. Bonus points if they feature stars or stripes.
This bathroom is dominated by deep navy paired with cool white. But small hints of red—like on the soap dispenser—add a touch of patriotic decor. The nautical style also helps the red, white, and blue color scheme from feeling too cliche the rest of the year.
A vintage flag displayed as artwork sets the tone for patriotic decorations. Neutral furniture in oatmeal and cognac stand as a quiet backdrop for bold blue and red accessories. Unique accents mix modern styling with country simplicity.
