Americana: A Red, White, and Blue Mud Room Mood Board

Hello again! I’m Dawn from DesigningDawn.com back this month with another mood-board for your decoration inspiration. As always, if you’ve missed any of my previous inspiration posts here on Remodelaholic, you can always check those out here. This month, I was inspired by our national holiday to come up with a red, white, and blue themed room that works all year round.

So I realize the 4th of July is over, but in honor of this month, I thought a somewhat patriotic room would be fun. Especially if it had the added challenge of not being too themey. Something that looks great all year, but with a distinctly American feel to it.

It seems like a lot of what I see as far as July decor, falls well within the ‘country craft’ style. I’m channeling Jerry Springer as I add “not that there’s anything wrong with that”, but country craft just isn’t my usual style. So I gave myself the added challenge of designing this room with a more modern feel to it.

I started with some inspiration rooms that I thought had the right color scheme, with a fun twist:

And finally, here’s what I cam up with for my own mood board, and I thought that a mud room would be a fun place to add this look and feel.

Keeping some rustic elements mixed in with the bright red, white, and blue color scheme helps it feel more lived in, and I like mixing patterns and textures to give the room some interest and depth. I really wanted a vintage, Americana feeling, without an overwhelming U.S.A. theme, so I stuck with some artwork that can be both graphical- with bold colors and vivid imagery, as well as representational- since the subject matter in several pieces is fairly patriotic.

I also added in accessories that I think have a classic Americana vibe, without going overboard. Things like a rustic barn light, a galvanized metal drink bucket, and a vintage Kit-Cat clock.

I think, overall, it is exactly the right mix of patriotism and style!
