Red, white and blue accents

Welcome to Decorating Diva, where every week we share fresh, fun ways to update your home and spice up your living space! Summer is sweet enough on its own. Toss in a few long weekends and you’ve got some seriously delicious icing on the cake. The next long weekend is right around the corner – hello, 4th of July! So we want to help you celebrate Independence Day in style as you soak up the sun, have fun with family and friends and enjoy one of the best holiday weekends of the summer. We’ve got some fun and festive décor ideas in red, white and blue to really kick your patriotic party into high gear.

Red, white and blue accents


You can't go wrong with crisp and classic white for your 4th of July festivities.

1Painted pillars

Add instant ambiance and a dose of drama to your Independence Day décor with these white glazed terracotta candle holders (West Elm, $30-$90). They come in varying sizes -- we suggest grouping several together to make even more of a style statement.

2Box vases

Set up several of these sleek white box vases (CB2, $10-$15) around your home for effortlessly chic style. The stoneware pieces come in several sizes and look especially striking holding a series of brightly colored blooms. We suggest something red in each for optimum 4th of July flair.

3Floral wall art

Add texture to your walls in bright white with these ornate stamped wall tiles (Umbra, $30 for three) featuring pop-out floral design. We love how playful they are and think they'd look great on any wall in the house. Think about getting a second set to really create an eye-catching design.
