In the month of July, many Americans are celebrating Independence Day on July 4th. Everywhere people are putting up decorations in the main colors of red, white and blue which happen to be the colors found in the American flag. Even seeing these colors makes many think of things related to summer, barbecues and children with Popsicle covered mouths.
These colors are also very patriotic. It makes you grateful for the family you have and the brave men and women that sacrificed for freedom. You may want to celebrate by using the classic color combination with a red, white and blue kitchen update. Since the kitchen is the heart of the home, it seems to be the perfect spot to highlight colors that reflect love of home, family and country.
A good bucket of fire engine red paint is the perfect base for your red, white and blue kitchen. Red is an energizing color and also stimulating to the appetite. Expect hunger mouths eager to be fed when you paint this color on your walls!
A medium tone country blue is also a classic color for the walls or cabinetry. It lends more to a farmhouse look and will look great with more rustic floors and appliances.
Accessories accentuate the theme depending on the mood you want to covey. A Red Kitchen Aid mixer and red canisters can give the kitchen a retro 1950’s feel. While a chalkboard painted panel and a wooden pallet kitchen table carry on the farm-to-table theme. Fabrics such as gingham and bandana print help to round out the look.
