You may only think about decorating with red, white and blue in the middle of Summer, but check out this sweet cottage featured in last month’s Country Living. It’s a perfect example of how this classic color combination can work—when done in the right doses. And, maybe it will bring inspiration for some of you who are “red people” or “blue people” and don’t think you can bring another color into the mix. . .
The magic formula.
While white is the dominant color, look closely, and you’ll see touches of red and blue in almost every room. I also love that they took one (very small) room to saturate in deep blue—and added a vintage flag. The homeowners layered on the texture with bamboo shades, seagrass baskets, antique furniture pieces in warm wood tones, and used a little bit of black in every space. This home also reminds me to keep an eye out for pretty gold mirrors. . . (They don’t have to match to work on the same wall!)
Get the look.
