In the Bedroom

Red, white and blue is a suitable color scheme for a sophisticated master bedroom or a child’s room.  Make a more grown-up bedroom by keeping bedding tailored and furnishings simple.  Use blue or white as the dominant color and use red as an accent.

This child’s bedroom is lively and joyful.  Stripes and bursts of red keep it fresh.  White furniture balances the room.  White window panels and bedding with red and blue trim give the room a tailored look.

Keeping it Modern

Give this classic color scheme a modern update for more contemporary interiors.  With white furnishings, mix patterns of blue and white and use red as an accent.  The red rug in this room anchors and balances the space.

Classic Style

Classic style is effortless in red, white and blue.  In this room of plentiful natural light, the white walls provide a wonderful background for pops of red and patterns of blue and white.  Red is balanced throughout the room, giving this interior a welcoming appeal.

Nautical Appeal

A nautical touch goes a long way for a cottage approach to red, white and blue.  Striped chairs flank the solid blue sofa and the ship’s wheel provides an interesting focal point.  Casual and classic, this room exemplifies American design.

A mixture of patterns and a fine balance of colors give this room a natural ease.  The variety of textures is evident in the red leather ottoman and wicker chair.  The white accessories provide even further texture.  Overall, this room is cozy and inviting.

Sophisticated style is achieved with the use of bold variations of red, white and blue. The addition of stately furnishings and accessories elevates the style of these rooms.  Adding black to the central color scheme grounds the space and gives the room contrast.

A Lighter Touch

You can choose to take a lighter touch with red, white and blue.  A classic white kitchen looks homey and warm with the addition of a blue and white plate collection and red bar stools.  With just these touches of color, the kitchen exudes life and interest.

You can be bold with the color scheme or take a more subtle approach to red, white and blue.  This classic combination can be sophisticated and grand or relaxed and casual.  Choose a dominant color of the three and let the other two play supporting roles.  This will give your space balance.  So, light some fireworks in your home with this trio of colors!
