Eclectic Bedroom by New York Photographers Rikki Snyder

With the 4th of July just a day away, we’re excited to share these 4 patriotic rooms that showcase style in the USA!

To match the room’s vintage feel, we’d pair the windows with Bali’s Northern Heights 2″ Wood Blinds, equipped with tape cloths for a retro look.

Somewhat hesitant about the 2 1/2 inch blinds since my front windows are very large. I initially selected white, however hubby convinced me that I shouldn’t be afraid of color.
