Decorating with Red, White, and Blue

From now through the Fourth of July, we'll be seeing lots of red, white, and blue in everything from foods and desserts to DIY and decor ideas. I found some wonderful cottage-style decorating ideas at Better Homes & Gardens that show how you can decorate with red, white, and blue all throughout the house! Here are a few I really like...


A festive, patriotic porch...a great mix of plaids and stars and stripes. Even the small pooch ties in with the color scheme! :)


Bold stars against red still manage to be restful in this bedroom because of the soothing blue walls. The small plaid lampshade and star pillow are great accents!


A mostly-white living room gets a bold punch of color with this red plaid sofa. The blue is more subdued in this room, with low-key pinstripes on the chair and ottoman and light touches of blue in the pillows.


This darling kitchen has lots of vintage appeal with red, white, and teal–a lighter, brighter take on the traditional patriotic colors!


A festive table setting that's perfect for a homespun celebration or meal. The bold red placemats and blue patterned dinnerware carry this look off with a beautiful red floral centerpiece as a finishing touch.
