The 4th of July is right around the corner and this is our inspiration to decorate with a red, white and blue color palette! Although it is a patriotic color palette, the primary colors of red and blue work well together and are pleasing to the eye. The warm red with the cool blue are complimentary colors and the white seems to break things up a little. There are many ways to make this patriotic color palette work without having to place stars and stripes everywhere. However, if stars and stripes is your thing, then let’s not make it tacky, shall we? Here are some rooms that are tastefully decorated in red, white and blue both traditional and contemporary.
