I personally prefer painting the walls white and adding red, white and blue accessories. Another idea is to paint 3 of your walls in white and one accent wall in red or blue, then add red, white and blue accessories. Wall border with a patriotic theme is also very popular.

Wood flooring with the addition of coordinating braided rugs works perfectly to tie the look together for this type decor.

Artwork is another way to add Americana decor. Look for folk art prints in scenes depicting country life, such as..

  • barns

Materials used for curtains are often muslin and denim in plaids or stripes. Gingham also works well with this style. The style of your curtains can range from fishtail swags, panels, valances and/or tiers. Another easy choice, that works well, is shades with valances.

There are many shades of red and blue so when you are shopping for accessories, it’s a good idea, to have a sample of your color choices, this makes it much easier to match your colors.
