No matter how subtle the hues, the color combination of red, white and blue easily elicits feelings of patriotic pride. And during these summer months filled with holidays that honor veterans and celebrate our nation’s independence—from Memorial Day to Flag Day to Independence Day and extending to Constitution Day—it’s a perfect time to unfurl your own version of patriotism at home.
Outdoor decor in the form of flags, eye-catching, firecracker-themed door wreaths and red, white and blue buntings are the most common way to add some holiday curb appeal. But, when it comes to indoor decor, there are some great Eco Flower ideas you likely won’t see around every neighborhood corner. These ideas are not only perfect for this patriotic season, but can even extend into your permanent decor style, especially when enhanced with some industry-wide decorating trends.
You’ve got the cute Uncle Sam porch sitters, flags made from recycled pallets, and fluffy buntings swagged along your white-picket fence or entryway. Now it’s time to bring some of that patriotism indoors. Eco Flower’s Americana collection is a fantastic place to kick off your summer season.
Looking for some fun color with a kick of bling for your entry table? Add a matched pair of Star You Ready for This? jar arrangements. With large bright-red blooms accented with texture-rich smaller blue flowers, this arrangement sits atop a jar filled with twisty, gold accents.
Dress up your kitchen table by creating a whimsical tablescape with vibrant shades of red, white and blue. Red-striped plates, crisp white napkins and blue Mason jar glasses make a great, simple table setting, especially when everything is pulled together with a beautiful centerpiece made from the Red White and You bouquet. The sola wood flowers in vibrant blues, reds and whites would be great in the add-on wooden vase embellished with a patriotic ribbon or arranged in a simple white hobnail vase, making your 4th of July barbecue even more memorable.
Reclaimed wood transformed into art is a growing trend with images of deer skulls, arrows, popular quotes and even landscapes. If you love this style of wall art, the We Love Our Stars and Stripes hanging is an incredible option for beautifully displaying your patriotic pride. Featuring sola wood flowers and jute shaped into a flag-inspired heart, this 24-by-21-inch sign would be great hanging on a collage wall or propped up on a shelf or console table.
Who says patriotic decor should only be displayed during summer months? With design trends embracing the complementary color scheme of red and blue, many homes are boasting their Americana pride year-round, in both bold statements and subtle nuances.
Draperies, rugs, bedding, wall hangings and accent pillows are great ways to bring pops of Old Glory to your interior design. Don’t forget the impact of stars and stripes, too. Varying shades of blue stripes intermixed with white or red or both are great for wall coverings or bedspreads. You could even hang a beloved, antique flag on your wall for a wonderful conversation piece.
For a great year-round pop of patriotism, try adding the Americana Tin Can to your sofa table or mantle. This large, recycled blue tin can is filled with beautiful sola wood and burlap blooms, creating a gorgeous centerpiece that will be adored no matter what season.
If your kitchen is already in shades of blue, try adding a splash of bright red with the Cherry Pie Tin Can. This recycled can, wrapped in a cream rope, is filled with rich, red flowers made of perfectly textured burlap. As everyone knows, there’s nothing more American than cherry pie, right? So this little arrangement is the perfect slice of patriotism for your everyday decor.
Any gallery wall in your home is going to be even more vibrant with the Home of the Free Sign. This pride-inducing statement is not only a wonderful tribute to our nation’s service men and women, it’s a great way to demonstrate your love for this great nation. And when that love extends beyond Independence Day, it deserves to be beautifully displayed year-round.
As we kick off our summertime patriotic celebrations, consider one of these stunning Eco Flower options for adding an extra punch of pride to your home’s decor. Whether it’s seasonal fun or something you’ll treasure year-round, these selections perfectly embody the spirit of our beloved nation.
