Design Inspiration: Old Glory Americana
Weathered Red, White, and Blue
While the colors may be faded, Old Glory is still strong and and undeniably American. The inspiration is our Silky Plaid Winterberry throw pillow featuring dusty red, weathered white, and faded blue hues. Americana, as a room decor, can include primitive, farmhouse, federal, and colonial pieces. Homespun touches such as quilts and rustic wood art bring a country feel.
The color palette, though, can be brought into the brighter coastal decor and even melded into more modern styles. Whether used as subtle colorful touches in a neutral room or the inspiration for bold wall coloring, you can never go wrong with red, white, and blue. Pantone's Spring 2018 forecast includes Spiced Apple, Sailor Blue, and Warm Sand which combine for the perfect weathered palette.
Just like our country, Americana is a diverse mix of textures, materials, and fabrics that come together under Old Glory.
Red, white and blue

2Rustic Flag Wall Art
For that one outstanding patriot element, check out this flag wall art from Georgia-based West Georgia Cornhole. The weathered look is perfect for a farmhouse look. It can also provide a fitting contrast to more modern looks based upon the Americana color palette.
If you are more of a do-it-yourself type, there are numerous tutorials for creating your own flag art out of old pallets. (Apparently, you can create a lot of out of old pallets.)
3Yankee Blue by Dixie Belle Paints
