Red, White and Blue Decor for Summer Decorating

Changes do not have to be drastic to re-design your space for summer.  Since much more time is spent outside, incorporating mood-setting outdoor lighting will definitely elevate your patio or backyard.  Small additions like chic outdoor accent pillows and comfy throw blankets in a red, white and blue color scheme also add a patriotic pop without over committing.  If you do wish to go big with this fun, summery color scheme, remember that mixing in pattern and texture is a good way to bring the bold colors without too much saturated color overload.
