  • Throw pillows: Red, white or blue throw pillows can make your couch pop. "Arrange throw pillows from the outside in. Everyone knows colorful pillows are the quickest change agents around," writes Country Living. "I start with a large, matched pair at the ends of a sofa, then work inward with smaller options in similar shades and motifs," continues Gena Sigala, contributing editor for the magazine.
  • Metallic accents: What better way to honor our nation's athletes than by incorporating bronze, silver or gold into the home? Metallic accents are right on trend this year and can be shown off numerous ways. For instance, create an accent wall with bronze picture frames or place a gold vase on your end table. The opportunities are endless!
  • Red curtains: Add a pop of color to your living room with custom curtains and drapes. Red can take your room from drab to fab! You can even place a blue tie-back around your curtains for an extra dose of flair.
