Color Theory: Red, White, and Blue

I recently just bought a red blanket for my bedroom. It is super soft and cozy and keeps me warm when it’s cold at night. My curtains, rug, picture frames, and artworks are dark blue. The walls are white. When I first got the blanket, I wasn’t sure it was going to work. Maybe I need new curtains, but that might be an excuse to go shopping since I still love them. The red blanket is nearly garnet(I know the website calls it burgundy), but it’s growing on me. I decided to search for inspiration to reassure myself. I think it helped.

I’m not a fan of red and blue rooms in general. I’m kind of afraid to try it. As much as I love America, I don’t want to decorate my room patriotically.

In John Knott and John Fondas's Maine master bedroom, the patriotic theme sprang from Fondas's collection of Washington memorabilia and American flags. Independence Toile covers the daybed next to a 19th-century English campaign chest. Walls are covered in Quadrille's Independence Engraving.
