A red, white and blue colour scheme doesn’t need to be overwhelming or garish and can instead be chic and sophisticated with a breezy, beach house feel. We’re combining bold, primary reds and blues with more muted versions of the shades, blues with a stonewashed denim feel and red shades with a soft, salmon tone are the perfect solutions to a subtle Americana interior vibe.
Using warmer whites will also give your 4th of July style palette a more sophisticated edge, layer elegant cream shades through wallcoverings, rugs and furniture and then introduce smaller pops of red and blues. Cushions, throws and artworks are perfect for introducing a touch of colour, to really embrace the look, try including a smattering of stars and stripes. We love the Lexington Quilted Linen American Flag Sham, its soft grey shade prevents the American theme from feeling overwhelming and the faded effect is perfect for a New England vibe.
If you’re going to be making the most of the 4th of July with a stylish celebration, bring your all-American theme to the table with a few well-placed stars and stripes and soft linens in a red and blue scheme. Try layering crockery, the Emile Henry Les Classiques collection in blanc and cerise paired with the Emile Henry Natural Chic range is the perfect combination. Place side plates and soup bowls on larger dinner plates to add height and dimension to place settings. We’re pairing these with the Lexington Seaside Living Framed Napkin for the ultimate 4th of July dinner table – just add apple pie!
If you prefer your Americana-inspired interior ideas to be a little less bold, look to individual American cities for their take on interior styling. The Houseologists love the cool sophistication of the Manhattan loft and bringing a little New York spin to your interior is easier than you might think. The classic loft apartment has an edgy, industrial feel with the materials that feature playing a key role in the overall look and feel of the design. Exposed brick walls, timber flooring, industrial metal detailing across lighting and furniture and rich leathers are all classic loft finishes and together build a richly layered look that has both warmth and contemporary cool.
