I've been slowly injecting the color red into our downstairs. It just started coming in organically. First, it showed up in a picture above the bar, and then we noticed my plates and bowls were red, and then finally Ryli decided to paint her bedroom red.
Yesterday, in keeping with the whole "I'm in the Fourth of July spirit" mood, I did a quick entry table makeover. I went hunting for some things around the house to help my entryway look a little more festive for this month's holiday. I had a goal of not spending a penny to decorate and to just reuse random items I already had.
Happy almost Memorial Day weekend! I'm feeling some Americana decor today, mainly in the form of blues and reds. Americana decor is such a broad category and you use the theme in your home without it looking like an American flag took over. Just subtle hints here and there is all you really need. As long as you don't have an American Flag you should be fine.
No matter how you are decorating your home for the holiday season this year, I always feel that the one thing that really brings everything together isn’t necessarily the Christmas tree, but what’s found underneath: Presents! Beautifully-wrapped Christmas presents, in my opinion, really are the best holiday decoration you can incorporate into your home. It’s usually the first place where anybody looks when they come over, and people will definitely notice if they’re wrapped up nicely. I know that for some, it may seem silly because these presents will simply be torn into by the end of the month, and all that time and meticulous detail that was put into the perfection of present wrapping is destroyed in a matter of seconds. However, not only will the recipient truly appreciate the work that was put into the gift before tearing up your masterpiece and probably comment on how nice it looks, they truly will enhance your home.
If you know the different color schemes and how specific colors will play out in your home, you can choose the right color combinations for your home. Here is a "primer" on various color schemes that you may consider for your home.
