Red, white and blue accents

Red, white and blue accents


Check out these bold and beautiful home accents in ravishing shades of red.

1Sleek side table

If you're short on flat surfaces for guests to rest their drinks or snacks on, we suggest picking up one or two of these handy tray tables (MoMA Store, $75) in a punchy shade of red. The convenient shape allows them to be easily attach right to your sofa, and the tray can be detached for easy serving.

2Lacquer finish lantern

Light up your indoor or outdoor space with a charming red lantern (Pottery Barn, $53- $69) painted a shiny, cheerful red. We love the rustic feel and antique finish, and the fact these pretty accessories will look equally at home on your patio table or your mantle.

3Eye-catching clock

We couldn't resist the allure of this adorable red wall clock (Crate & Barrel, $14). We think it would be a fun addition to your arsenal of 4th of July accents, whether you place it in the foyer or the kitchen. It's red, it's bold and it will add a pop of color no matter where you place it.
