A picnic table and a pair of Adirondack chairs ensure everyone is comfortable, and red accents really spice up the space.
Sports trophies are displayed on locker-style furniture in this 10-year-old boy’s room. The twin beds once belonged to his grandmother and are updated with fire engine red lacquer.
This multipurpose room acts as an office, and because of the sleeping nook with daybed, it can also double as a guest room. Bold stripes and playful prints give this room a fun but not overdone nautical theme.
Durable composite decking in 3-inch tongue-and-groove planks gives this porch an old-fashioned feel. But this modern material won't rot, warp, or crack.
With vaulted ceilings and whitewashed wood paneling, this master bedroom is made only for sleeping. A simple blue-and-white quilt enforces the nautical island look of this coastal Maine sleeping space.
The guest suite over the garage serves as a great kids' hideout.
Crisp shades of red, white, and blue dress up throw pillows.
Give monochromatic rooms interest and depth with texture. Go for the look of an old beach shack by coating wooden walls in white. Once dry, sand planks to reveal glimpses of the wood beneath.
“The personality of an all-white room can be easily changed. Adding a single accent color creates an entirely different space.”

Sure your grandfather taught you all of this way back when, but brush up on the Flag Code and make sure you're flying the American Flag correctly.
If you don't own your own flag, check out Brookstone's selection by Annin & Co (makers of the flags planted on the North and South Poles, Mt. Everest, and the Moon).
Warm up your family room with rich wood interiors and a prominent stone fireplace. High ceilings and clerestory windows flood the space with natural light and keep the room bright.
