Depicted by a simple box shape and the large central dormer, this style of colonial home is called the Foursquare. Its full-width porch and low roof with a deep overhang are also in keeping with this post-Victorian design. The simple white and green color scheme ties into the style of the home.
Blue and white check carpet, paisley bedding and a red, white and blue color palette showcase an Americana theme. This bedroom from the HGTV Dream Home 2012 features a dark wood four-poster bed and a vintage-style American flag art piece above the bed. Chrome chandeliers add a touch of glamor to the room and highlight the vaulted ceiling.
The enclosed porch protects this dining room from the elements while tall potted plants and uncovered windows connect the space to the outdoors. Navy blue slipcovers over the chairs add a beautiful deep color to the bright, neutral surroundings. American flag pillows and a vintage style poster add decoration and color to the design.
From the floor up, the entire guest room is wrapped in shades of blue. A basic queen bed frame is dressed with blue and white linens and placed in to corner to create a cozy niche. Touches of red are placed throughout the room to coordinate with the oversized American flag.
A gas fireplace saves space and is safer for the home's littlest occupants. The sliding barn door opens up the wall between the living room and master bedroom, creating a more natural route into the couple's personal space. A rustic American flag and cozy seating space create a warm feel in the living room.
Moving the dining area closer to the kitchen creates breathing room for this living room, while a floor-to-ceiling bookcase adds lots of vertical storage. The finished living room now has a new propane fire place, an old rustic American flag, and new chairs highlighted by blue pillows.
A fireplace is decked out for Christmas following the nautical theme of the living room's decor. Maritime flags and rope dress up the greenery garland on the mantel, while navy blue and red striped stockings suit the American flag artwork above.
Light gray walls create a cool tone background for the red accent pieces to pop in this sitting room. A large red sectional is pairs with a red window seat cushion. The large coffee table and ottoman is upholstered with a pattern repeated on throw pillows to tie in the design throughout the room. A frame American flag adds a patriotic touch while complimenting the color scheme.
