“Fab Friday” will be fabulous because the primary focus is centered around amazing fabrics, rooms and color combinations. It’s highly probable there will be other bits of interior design delights represented too!
There are simply certain colors that elude to hot summer days. With the 4th of July right around the corner I thought it would be fun to focus on the colors of our country: Red, White & Blue.
This mom is expecting a sweet baby and implemented Old Glory’s colors beautifully.
I love the use of blue rugby stripes and the red chevron fabrics. Do you see how she even brought that lovely red chevron onto the wall? Brilliant. The room doesn’t appear overly busy with the white beds and bead board on the rooms perimeter and the red and blue pieces of furniture centered on the area rug. The industrial ceiling fixture is an excellent touch too!
Typically when I think of a red, white and blue color theme in a bedroom my mind immediately visualizes a boys room but that’s really not the case. There are so many variations to this color combo.
Here is a really cute girls bedroom design from The Crafting Chicks. I love, love, love this and if I had a daughter would likely attempt to replicate this look in some way.
The fabrics below are somewhat similar to the above picture. The colors and patterns provide a modern yet sophisticated twist to the tried and true color scheme. All of the fabrics shown below can be found at Tonic Living.
The designer of this stunning room is Meredith Heron. Her use of red, white and navy work perfectly thanks to the abundant use of neutral colors. The room is relaxing but visually interesting.
This area rug from Overstock could serve as a fab inspiration piece to a room.
These color combinations are not strictly for the indoors. There are plenty of homes we see that are more subtle and do not scream Americana. This house from BHG has implemented the patriotic theme in a low key, subtle manner that is simply timeless. The primary exterior color is clearly gray with a blue undertone. The additional of red flowers leading up to the front door is a nice touch. The bold red door is prominently displayed against the siding, white trim and lovely black shutters.
I typically lean to a subtle approach of our patriotic colors on the exterior of a home. This beauty, however, is a place that I think is a perfect landing spot to celebrate our wonderful nations birthday!
