Americana Home Decorations


A niche decorating style that seems to be gaining popularity right now is the Americana style. This is very popular among Americans who want to display their heritage, and also among non-Americans who want to have a themed room in their home. It is popular because of its obvious association with America and also with its versatile color scheme.

The main colors are the same as on the American flag; red, white and blue, and these are used together in different ways to create your Americana room. If you want a more discreet American feel, you can opt for less contrasting colors, for example cream, pale blue and dark red for example. Although you can use all three in equal amounts to create a striking piece, most people choose to use one color as a base and work the other two around her.

Once the piece is decorated, it's time to accessorize! The first step is to buy furniture that goes with the design, usually fairly simple white furniture, sometimes a really plump sofa, and a storage box painted with an American flag, or the same design on a coffee table. The same goes for plant pots, which can be painted with a flag and used instead of end tables. Try to go something like a cactus to adapt to the theme.

After choosing the basic furniture, you will want to brighten the room with some small American additions, such as a license plate, a road sign, an Uncle Sam's birdhouse, a flag, and the list continues. There are so many things you could put in this room, it's amazing, so look around you, in the books, in the shops and online. You will ultimately find everything you really want to give you an American sanctuary.

It's very easy to overbuy because there are so many things out there. If you find yourself in this situation, store your belongings and rotate your accessories to always keep your room new. That way, you will never be bored with something that has taken a lot of effort to create, and you can actually redecorate every few months without the need to completely reshape the room.
