Three Cheers for the Red, White, and Blue

By Kate Riley June 29, 2016

Today I’m off on a road trip to Vegas, we’re finishing up a few projects around the house and entertaining a crowd this weekend. I have a lot of cousins and family coming over to relax and celebrate the Fourth of July by the pool. It got me in the mood to fix some patriotic dishes (you know those blueberry and strawberry combinations that recreate the flag) then it got me thinking about interiors.

Together, red, white, and blue are not often combined in design in large doses but every now and then I’ll spy a space decorated in this patriotic combo and love to see designers pull it off successfully without the over the top star spangled theme. Three cheers for the red, white, and blue!

Two things: I added a 5 gallon paint giveaway to yesterday’s post so click over to enter (just name the rooms you’ll be painting to be eligible).

Also I’m soooo excited to share my latest DIY project with you, it’s an IKEA hack and one you’ll love! I’ll post it tomorrow afternoon. Happy trails!


  1. I love the red, white, and blue colors used in a home! I have often thought of it in my own home, but just never know how to make it all work without being “too” much. Thank you for sharing some great room ideas! Have a wonderful 4th of July with your family! ??
