Sharing easy ways to add red and white decor and a smidge of blue in the middle of winter
Do you have a favorite color? There is one color that I do not love. And, to say it out loud sounds blasphemous, but I do not love the color red.
I mean, yes I love it for the 4th of July and of course, Christmas and in a glass of wine, but the color red does not look good on me.
But I love creamy whites and found red and white decor works surprisingly well for the weeks following Christmas.
So I found a workaround for the winter months when the Christmas trees are stored away and the stockings are wrapped in these.
RED AND WHITE WINTER DECOR
And, in Colorado, it’s not uncommon for the first half of winter to be kind of blah. So we need to add a little cheery red and calming whites to our winter decor.
And, like I said I don’t love red so Valentine’s is more about soft pinks. But then I noticed while washing these I had randomly tossed these pillows and loved the look.
I found if I had red, white and blue the blue tones down the red or maybe it makes it pop.
But the red and white (and blue) layers are surprisingly cozy for winter.
Sidenote: I found these red pillows with white snowflakes at HomeGoods this fall. It was love at first sight and I bought two.
And the other side of the down pillow is red so I can bring them back in time for Memorial Day.
I just love this little squirrel pillow. I shared the back story here.
I found this pillow online at this Knoxville based store.
And, yes I realize squirrels can be maddening during the fall with pumpkins on the porch. ;0)
But why not add a little blue to your red and white for Valentine’s?
I played with a few accessories against a Hale Navy wall and loved how much the red and white popped.
It gives a cool vibe for the winter months.
I bought these soft red and white cloth napkins from my new favorite store in Knoxville.
Heads up- their online shop is addictive.
I played with this arrangement in the dining room.
I loved the red bucket against the navy wall.
I think this red and white winter decor will carry me into the months of March when Colorado gets hit with a blizzard.
