Inspiration: Navy, Red and White Kids Spaces

The nursery is a red, white and blue color palatte.  I love the color combo but I think there is a fine line between beautifully coordinated and hokey americana.  I think you really need to use restraint when dealing with the palatte of our nation’s flag.  Here are some inpiration pics of the combo done right:

It’s a fun and classic color combo.  I think what I’m liking the most are the room that relied more heavily on the blue and used red sparingly.  Red is a bold color; it’s also a favorite color of mine so I’m trying to use some restraint.  So far, the red in the nursery comes from a red pouf next to the glider and this cute little Janet Hill print in a red frame above the twin bed in the room.

    Well, if anyone can pull of the look, it is you, my friend! I notice than several of the rooms have variations of blue, including a lighter blue. I think that’s one of the keys to making it feel like full-fledged americana.

    Correction: feel LESS like full-fledged americana. 🙂
