Interior Design Inspiration: Red, White, and Blue Interiors with Traditional Decor Ideas

It’s that time of year! As we inch closer to Memorial Day (c’mon SUMMER, let’s get you in full gear!) and even begin to consider the 4th of July, my thoughts turn to red, white, and blue, and what this great country means to me. I know there’s work to do. I know the division is making us weary. But I have hope, friends. Before something new dawns, there is always darkness.

Do you remember that 1991 Superbowl when Whitney sang our national anthem with such heart that most of us will never forget where we were in that moment? I was expecting our first child, and I could not move as I witnessed this performance. Please take the time to listen to it once more and perhaps allow it to penetrate your heart and bring gratitude for the men and women who protect us and serve so faithfully – I cannot listen without chills and tears.

Whew! What a gift. It’s hard not to think she was gone too soon.

american flags. always appropriate.

Red, white, and blue color schemes work especially well in cottages and casual interiors, and I have beautiful examples. Those among us who can live with big color or at least doses of it? I salute you and offer this parade of gorgeous decor inspiration with photos just dying to be pinned and shared with lovers of this look. And if you’re a neutrals only fan, I have a feeling you will still find inspiration here from the mostly traditional lineup of beautiful rooms sporting the colors of the American flag. PLEASE PIN THIS POST TO SHARE IT WITH AMERICA!

Old Glory’s red, white and blue?

White signifies purity and innocence, Red, hardiness & valor, and Blue, the color of the Chief, signifies vigilance, perseverance & justice.

By the way. Do you know who designed our current American flag?

The flag was designed in 1958 by 17-year-old high schooler, Robert G. Heft, of Lancaster, Ohio. His design earned him only a B- for his school sewing project; however, President Dwight D. Eisenhower selected his design as the winner from 1,500 entries. Apparently Heft’s school teacher raised his grade after his win! Grades are never gonna have the last word, kids!

Let’s peek at pretty interiors…this first room doesn’t knock you over with Americana, nor is it even located in the USA! I’m always gonna push the envelope and keep y’all guessing. I love the muted turquoise mixed with  navy, don’t you? This is Anderson Cooper’s Brazilian vacation getaway which I featured here.

So many interiors with red, white, and blue have a coastal feel. I am guessing this room was styled for a shoot and not daily living since this arrangement encourages pommel horse practice and might lead to broken toes in the dark.

…which reminds me of a bunting story brush with greatness from a few seasons back. I had just paid for a vintage bunting flag at a local garage sale when a very famous on the internet farmhouse style rockstar was passing by and remarked “you sold my bunting?” Yep. It was Urban Farmgirl, and the sale was at a family member’s home. Ha!

    Wow, never thought I would hear Whitney sing our national anthem on Hello Lovely and I was amazed. She was gifted with a beautiful voice. So sad that evil took her away. Thank you.

      So true – she considered her talent a gift from God, and her voice was certainly one of a kind. Thanks for reading and listening, friend. 🙂

    Beautiful! Could you share your knowledge of the style of architecture on the exterior home picture near the end of your post. Have always loved that chimney style and pitch of the roof. What is this style called? And would love to see that interior!!! So pretty. Thank you Michele.

      I’m actually working on a post spotlighting that home so you’ll soon see the interiors here! It is a renovated 1926 A-frame home in West Hollywood. I haven’t yet seen photos of the facade’s “before.” The renovation was beautifully executed by architect William Hefner, and the issue of Traditional Home magazine it appeared in is September 2016. Hope this helps! xox

    What a lovely post, beautiful interiors & exteriors as usual.

    Yes, Whitney’s rendition was wonderful but as a mother of two military sons, and coming from a family with many military members, give me a military band or choir singing The National Anthem any day as my favorite. 🙂

    We proudly fly Our Flag every day! Too many Americans think they only need to fly it on ‘special occasions’. I say to have the privilege to live in our great Country is a special occasion daily. 🙂

    Thank you again for a beautiful post and inspiration.

    Terrific posting Michele!
    We have our magnificent flag waving to the passerby’s every day. Even before our 1st born worked towards his acceptance into Officers Training for the Army this spring. I adore the RL American flag sweater and would be more apt to purchase it if I knew it was made in the USA.
    I will be snapping up the flag knitted throw…can never have enough of those in our busy home. Your choice of interior shots was spot on; and as an Illini, I didn’t mind the blue and orange one bit. Kindly- JLL

      That’s the spirit! Congratulations on the acceptance – what an honorable accomplishment. Thanks so much for reading and visiting and adding to the beauty here. I owned the RL navy knit flag pillow for years on a blue check settee until it was so sun faded and blotchy, it had to go! Bon weekend, gorgeous Illini goddess.
