It’s a classic color scheme with broad appeal, but how do you use the Stars and Stripes without going full flag? We love the approach this savvy homeowner took.
She decorated her grandkids’ room with an Americana motif that references Old Glory but isn’t too heavy handed. The whitewashed walls, trim, and ceiling give a neutral background to vibrant linens and unique furniture pieces. She mixed wooden bed frames with upholstered headboards for an eclectic collected look. An assortment of quilts in a coordinating color scheme go together and avoid being too matchy matchy. Antique nautical prints harken to naval adventures, and wall-mounted light fixtures save space for books and glasses of water on small bedside tables.
Who says stripes and checks don’t go together? We love the look of this this vintage checkered quilt alongside the classic ticking stripe of the sham.
