Red, White and Blue Decorating

On the Fourth of July I love to show images that I have been collecting of Red, White and Blue decorating! Here is a favorite - I adore this boys room, especially the sail!

Of course this antique Union Jack flag becomes artwork when hung above a beautiful blue velvet sofa.

I love this clever idea of using an oar as a curtain rod and a flag as a curtain! Whimsical and fun!!

Small flags in red, white and blue prints liven up these built in beds, but its the boat flags painted on the floor that really caught my eye!

Finally a bright blue checked floor and trim turns this porch from blah to bold!

Have a wonderful holiday weekend!

  1. I love the colour scheme in these rooms, especially the little boys bedrooms. ;-)

  2. I love July 4th blogs...yours is beautiful!!

  3. I too love July fourth blog posts!
    I could live in any of these rooms.... so bright
    and cheery.
    Great post!
    Have a lovely 4th.

  4. That color combination always looks so fresh and happy together - just look at all those rooms!

    I hope you have "landed" (and not only in a mountain of laundry) after your wonderful trip to Italy. I will check in with you next week.

    Happy 4th to you and your family! Be lazy!

  5. Great post, just love these up here in the NW everyone is out on their boats this weekend!

  6. Lovely... I also adore these rooms.

    In May I posted a concept board at my blog for a room like that... if you can, check it out and let me know what you think!

    Have a good 4th of July (because we have to work tomorrow)!

  7. Hi Gina~
    Some very clever ideas!
    I don't think I have a single red/white/blue combo in my files! Love that boy's room with the boat bed.

  8. Gina, we love the little boys adorable. Hope you and your family have a wonderful 4th of July weekend!

  9. These are so pretty but I especially like the first picture. Love that bed!!

  10. That kids bed in the shape of a sail boat is just amazing!
    this is such a great idea and I will adopt it for our next remodeling project when we have planned changing our guest bedroom in a room that will be more appealing for our grandson to stay since he loves staying with us over the weekends so much.
    I guess I just found my hubby's next DIY project. ;)
    Best Regards and Thanks for sharing

  15. Hi, I love your blog!! I live in Germany and I have been on the hunt for a Mora clock and just read your old post about finding your piece in Munich. I can't seem to email you any other way, so trying to get in touch via the comment section. I am headed to Bavaria this weekend and didn't know if you remembered any shops down there. Thanks in advance, Andrea from or

  16. Love these color combination for a navy style.

  17. I never thought of using the national flag color as a theme of decor. Very creative idea.

  18. Love the nautical boy's room with the boat bed. So clever!!!
