A Patriotic Home Decorating Theme

A Patriotic Home Decorating Theme
Are you​ hard core red, white, and​ blue? if​ so, then your​ country needs you​ to​ stand​ up and​ present your​ true colors to​ the world .​
this​ can be easily accomplished by celebrating everything American with your​ home decorating plans .​
Believe it​ or​ not patriotic is​ the thing to​ be in​ post 9-11 America and​ the way you​ decorate your​ home can let the world know exactly where your​ true convictions lie .​
There are many things you​ can do to​ bring Old Glory front and​ center within​ your​ home that do not require you​ to​ drape your​ furniture with the American flag or​ having the flag hanging in​ every window .​
in​ fact, most would frown on​ that particular practice .​
One thing that can be said without fail though is​ that nothing can change the overall impression​ a​ room gives as​ completely as​ a​ bucket of​ paint and​ a​ brush .​
in​ other words, the best place to​ begin​ is​ often with the walls of​ your​ home .​
Painting a​ backdrop of​ red and​ trimming with blue and​ white makes a​ bold and​ powerful statement .​
It's also a​ rather lovely statement if​ you​ choose the correct shades of​ red, white, and​ blue.
in​ addition​ to​ paint there are all kinds of​ country style décor that would compliment a​ patriotic theme quite nicely .​
From stars that are designed to​ hang on​ the wall to​ patchwork quilts in​ these patriotic shades and​ a​ quilt rack that can either stand​ against the wall or​ hang on​ the wall .​
Quilts are outstanding choices to​ bring colors into a​ room as​ well as​ an​ excellent method for​ adding warmth .​
in​ addition​ to​ many quilts there are also plenty of​ throws and​ blankets that can bring these colors front and​ center in​ almost any room of​ the home .​
in​ addition​ to​ walls, furniture can be painted in​ order to​ match the walls and​ other colors you'd like to​ incorporate into the room .​
There is​ nothing quite like walking into a​ home that has its full patriotic splendor shining for​ all the world to​ see .​
It's a​ beautiful thing made even more poignant now that the initial wave of​ patriotism following the September 11th attacks has faded somewhat .​
for​ those that are true patriots there are few better ways to​ show that than by making your​ home a​ testament of​ your​ patriotism .​
Candles are another great way to​ display your​ patriotic spirit .​
Red, white, and​ blue candles are made in​ many wonderful styles, sizes, and​ fragrances .​
you​ should be able to​ find something appropriate in​ this​ color combination​ if​ you​ look hard enough .​
More importantly, fragrance is​ a​ great (and​ often overlooked) way to​ add another dimension​ to​ your​ home decorating endeavors .​
if​ you​ want to​ truly make an​ impression​ burn apple pie scented candles on​ a​ regular basis so that your​ home almost always smells as​ American as​ apple pie .​
in​ addition​ to​ candles of​ course there are fragrance warmers, air sprays, and​ simmering pots in​ which this​ scent can be found (particularly if​ you​ prefer a​ scent layering affect in​ your​ home).
Whether you​ simply like the look of​ patriot blue or​ you​ feel that you​ are a​ true American through and​ through there are very few wrong reasons to​ incorporate the red, white, and​ blue that represents America into your​ home décor .​
Patriotism seems to​ be a​ dieing art once again; perhaps your​ bold statement can inspire others to​ do the same.
