True Colors: The Red, White, and Blue Rooms We Love

We know you're waiting for star-spangled banners and fireworks tonight. From coast to coast, people around the country have been celebrating this long weekend with barbecues, sparklers, and pool games. Clambakes are being fired up on beaches everywhere, and blueberry pies are going into the oven en masse. No matter what your activity of choice, on America's favorite holiday, we cannot help but think and dream in red, white, and blue.

That's why we've hand-plucked a selection of the best and brightest all-Amercian-hued interiors to serve as a pre-game feast for the eyes. While their destinations are decidedly international, from India to California, these spirited and bold spaces prove a patriotic color palette travels well. Get ready for some serious red, white, and blue décor ideas—enough to have you musing over amber waves of grain and purple mountain majesties.

Next up: the Fourth of July hacks that will make hosting a breeze.
