I personally prefer painting the walls white and adding red, white and blue accessories, but you can certainly 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.

country bedroom Give interest to the room through texture, introduce wicker baskets, dried flowers, antique milk cans, barn stars or a blanket chest to store quilts or other items.

Add shelves to display candles, roosters, eagles, plaques with verses, vintage signs, dried flowers, tin stars, stackable wooden boxes, plus a quilt ladder to display your handmade Americana quilts.

More americana decorating ideas is artwork. Look for folk art prints in scenes depicting country life, such as, a general store, barns, farms and farm equipment, antique flags, vintage signs and plaques with verses are also great wall hangings.

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.
