How about showing off a bit of your patriotic fervor along with adding a whole new shade to your home? This modern home captured by Carl Dahlstedt mixes elegant modern interiors with bold and bright shades of blue that makes it somehow unique. The entire home and even the furnishings borrow shades, colors and textures from the American national flag and that theme is the unifying thread of the complete design. Even the minutest stuff like the towels in the kitchen follow the pattern and apart from showing off your love for your homeland, you add a whole new dimension to the way you chose to decorate. Of course, with a change in identity can mean a change in color, like splashes of bright orange for the Dutch or a striking yellow for the Aussies. – via
