Welcome to the first of a new series on the blog I’m calling Eleven Elegant Enthusiasms. It’s essentially a curated collection of design ideas that have caught my interest in the past week and have inspired me. I will always provide links to the source and if you’d like to pin them, you can pin directly from the originals.
This week I’m feeling red, white and blue, like most of you, but I enjoy my patriotic palette with an elegant twist. So much that’s done with this combination revolves around stars and stripes, and certainly that can be done tastefully, but one can also simply hint at the feel as shown in the following rooms…
Stunning mix of solids and florals at Lush Home.
Lengths of red drapery panels with blue + white chinoiserie at Design-Crisis.
Stunning bold color play from Barclay Butera via House of Turquoise.
Just a hint of red against classic blue + white at Chinoiserie Chic.
Stripes on stripes with patterned walls at Chinoiserie Chic.
A bold mix with the surprise of red chinoiserie toile from Joe Nye Flair.
Solid, stripe and print from Ralph Lauren Bedding at Simplified Bee.

And because 11 was simply not enough…
