I recently just bought a red blanket for my bedroom. It is super soft and cozy and keeps me warm when it’s cold at night. My curtains, rug, picture frames, and artworks are dark blue. The walls are white. When I first got the blanket, I wasn’t sure it was going to work. Maybe I need new curtains, but that might be an excuse to go shopping since I still love them. The red blanket is nearly garnet(I know the website calls it burgundy), but it’s growing on me. I decided to search for inspiration to reassure myself. I think it helped.
I’m not a fan of red and blue rooms in general. I’m kind of afraid to try it. As much as I love America, I don’t want to decorate my room patriotically.
They have a slideshow of several red, blue, and white rooms.
This one(below) was nicely done. Not too formal or obviously patriotic. A cozy mix of what I like to call Modern Tradition.
I am actually in love with this room!!!!
This photo(below) is a beautiful combination of red, white, and blue. I just had to share it. It’s very nicely done by Lillian August.
Laurel Bern wrote a nice blog about red, white, and blue rooms and tips on how to avoid making the room look like our flag.
This room is staged by Ikea. I’m not really sure if it should count, but I really like it. So…here it is!
I love the dramatic flair of this dining room.
The Decorating Files has some beautiful rooms in her blog about red, white, and blue rooms. Read it here.
I couldn’t resist, y’all. I had to throw in a color related cake. Isn’t it beautifully unique and fun?
I don’t know about you, but after seeing these pictures, I was reassured of the potential of having a red, white, and blue room. What about you? It’s a bold move, but would you try it?
