Red, white, and blue decor never looked so chic! Decorate your home with stars, stripes, and patriotic colors to show off your American pride.

Dining with Patriotic Flair

A white dining room is a perfect backdrop for holiday decorating. This summer dining table has been embellished with posh red, white, and blue accessories for a July 4th luncheon. A hanging American flag is the finishing touch for this home's patriotic decor. 

Stars and Stripes Forever

Decorate your space with an interpretation of the American flag. This inviting kitchen reflects the flag's styling with red chairs, a white farmhouse table, and blue linens. Table decorations—blue vases and red flowers—complete the look. 

Patterns with Punch

A crisp white cottage porch pays tribute to the grand old flag in a casual, homey style. The look comes from a strong assortment of patriotic outdoor decorations. Oversize bunting, a striped rug, and pillows in stripes, polka dots, and gingham emblazon the porch with red, white, and blue style.

Vintage Revival

With a nod to America's past, this 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 America's past. 

Proudly American

A vintage flag displayed as artwork sets the tone for patriotic home decor. 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.

Young Patriots

Modern flair mixes with American pride in this 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.

Summer Sensation

Wrapped in red, white, and blue linens, a cozy porch is just the place to pass a hot summer evening with a cool glass of lemonade. An oversize American flag makes the perfect backdrop for patriotic table decorations. 

Fun and Festive

With red curtains and blue walls as anchors, it's easy to decorate for the Fourth of July. Festive linens turn the table into Independence Day central, while a fresh centerpiece with colorful flags adds to the red, white, and blue home decor theme.

Time to Celebrate

Handsome patriotic decorations give a simple update to basic red, white, and blue furniture. This screened-in porch instantly becomes ready for the Fourth of July with the addition of festive throws, pillows, and planters. 

Oh, So Simple

Accessories make it easy to decorate this eclectic living room for the Fourth of July. The wall is already painted a deep blue, so all that's left is to add festive flowers and red and white pillows.

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. 

Paint Job

Fourth of July 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.

American Accessories

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. 

Nautical Twist

This bathroom is dominated by deep navy paired with cool white. But small pops of red—like on the soap dispenser—add a touch of patriotism. The nautical style also helps the red, white, and blue color scheme from feeling too cliche the rest of the year.
