And speaking of Old Glory...
Many years ago, when I was young and trotting the globe, I had dinner one evening in a charming home decorated in red, white and blue. It was love at first sight for me, and I planned to follow suit if I ever had a place of my own.
Since then, I've had ten places of my own, but not one room has been decorated in red, white and blue. I'm not sure why, but maybe I'll make it happen one of these fine days. Here are a few images I found online to inspire me. If you're needing a room makeover anywhere, maybe they'll inspire you, too.
Don't you just love this kitchen? So fresh and bright. I can almost hear birds chirping outside the window.
The house I visited had red tulips planted in distressed white pots scattered about the room, but I love this more masculine look, as well. These red leather chairs are sensational.

The pop of yellow and the striped fabrics in this room whisper "cozy" to me.

Now, this is my kind of space. Not only the colors, but the fabrics, the shapes, the textures. Everything about it says come on in and sit a spell.
And that, my friends, concludes my salute to red, white and blue. I think I'll go hang some flags now. I hope your holiday is safe and filled with love.
