You have decided on your color palette for a particular room. The sofa, chairs, curtains, and pillows all compliment each other.

It’s time to hang something on the walls. Let’s just say you’re decorating with red, white, and blue. What made me think of that?

You don’t need red, white and blue in every piece in the room. Embossed paper art or a sculpture in white would look great against almost any color wall. Dust off and hang the painting you created during your blue period. Quilts make beautiful wall hangings.

Seascapes are a perfect choice for our color scheme. You may even find one with a red sailboat. And don’t be afraid of landscapes. If the sky is blue and the barn is red, that’s close enough. Enjoy your art. Don’t worry about a stray tree.

An arrangement of blue or white or red botanicals may be just the finishing touch for a wall.

Do you have some 4th of July picnic photos that you could spotlight? A print of a building displaying an American flag brings a patriotic touch. The Canadian flag will fit our color palette also.

If your wall has color hang an open weave needleart, a carved piece, or artwork made of materials such as metal, glass or wood.

Small changes make an enormous difference. Accent a blue and white room with silver & gold this winter and yellows & greens next spring. Give a red and white room a fresh look with blue accents this summer and rich golds for autumn. Add deep greens during the winter holiday season.
