  1. I have always decorated my home in blue tones! Several of my rooms are in Americana decor. I try not to over do it, but blue speaks to my heart. As well as red white & blue! Just love it! I’ve lived in the city, mountains & now at the beach! Every home I’ve had was in Americana. I tried to change it up in a couple of my homes but it just didn’t feel homey to me until I changed the colors to, well you know the answer to that! I just found this site, I’m in love with it! Thank you!
