Color My World

There are certain color palettes that just automatically set the tone for a room, like the coastal cool vibe in the home I’m working on with Drew Scott on HGTV’s Brother vs. Brother. Those water colors of turquoise and sky blue aren’t the only classic beach colors, though. I also love a patriotic red, white, and blue for homes on the coast, especially for those July 4th getaways! Let’s take a look:

Barclay Butera is known for his California coast look, and he doesn’t disappoint in this living room. He goes slightly lighter than navy for a slight twist on the traditional flag colors.

Brian Patrick Flynn uses several shades of blue and a washed-out-red to create a winning bedroom design above!

In a home designed by Robert Couturier and featured in Elle Decor, a Jean Dubuffet painting brings the patriotic palette without overtly waving the flag.

Fab You Bliss sets a patriotic table with not one stripe in sight. To recreate this for your Fourth festivities, consider vintage patterns to mix and match with newer tableware.
