Just in time for the 4th of July comes a stylish reboot of red, white and blue decor. A modern twist on the good old red, white and blue, contemporary patriotic decor sizzles with style whether you’re celebrating at the top of a mountain, down on the beach, or in your own backyard.
Here’s how to ground your table with the colors of the day in a contemporary way.
