Decorating with Color: Red, White and Blue

Decorating with color is easy when you have the right inspiration.  In honor of our upcoming Memorial Day, I thought it would be fun to share some fabulous rooms decorated in red, white and blue.

The dynamic and bold color palette of red, white, and blue has always been very popular with clients that have coastal or cottage style homes.  But it’s just as exciting to decorate using this patriotic color scheme in a variety of other styles.

      The room was designed by Meredith Heron (it’s her townhome in Toronto) and the curtain fabric is available through her design firm, but it’s to-the-trade only. According to them, it’s an Italian linen that’s embroidered in the
      medallion pattern and is approximately $184 yard. Here’s a link to their website for more information: http://meredithheron.com/ 🙂
