After attending the markets this season, our designers were amazed at a trend sweeping the country.Maybe it is because of the presidential election or a new found national patriotism, but in either case, red, white and blue are back in a big way. Not the soft denim blue, but bright cobalt, indigo and sapphire. Red acts as an accent color, or is avoided in favor of a more simple blue and white pallet.
It has been seen in wall color, and rugs. Blue and white can go traditional, or up to the moment contemporary.
Cobalt makes a strong but peaceful statement in the bathroom or bedroom.
Grandma’s blue willow dishes are out of the closet and front and center as a decorative motif.
Below, bedding in indigo and white is especially welcoming and restful and adds a fresh nautical look to a plain white bedroom.
Watch for Flag art, including actual flags framed in all of their glory. Hanging flags on porches and walls and flags from other nations as well as the US.
