We pledge allegiance to spaces and styles that celebrate the all-American motifs. The featured designs incorporate stars or stripes or both, giving a nod to Old Glory. Whether subtle, as in the crisp Nantucket entryway (shown above) conceived by SLC Interiors, where a set of constellations suspended from a midnight-blue ceiling softly illuminate a space that points all to the beach, or more overt, like the red, white and blue cottage-style children’s room below, these scenes have a palpable air of patriotism.
This children’s bedroom of a cottage in Edgartown, designed by Patrick Ahearn, FAIA of Patrick Ahearn Architect, really shows its stripes. We love the navy and white detailing on the boat-styled bed, drum fixture and upholstery. The look is dynamite alongside the broad red stripe that emblazons the wall, and the field of shiny bright blue on the flooring.

Every day is Flag Day when gathered at the table of a beautiful bespoke eating nook in a home constructed by brookes + hill custom builders, inc. This space is bold and proud with its white built-in banquette seating with royal blue cushions, take-notice red pedestal table and star-spangled pillows.

The striped perch of a beachside alcove constructed by E.W. Tarca Construction, Inc. is an ideal setting for a nap post-patriot games. The blue tones of the space are breezy and coastal in spirit, as is the starfish pattern of the chaise’s upholstery.
A silver star fixture alights the island of a shipshape kitchen on Martha’s Vineyard, conceived by Patrick Ahearn Architect and constructed by Colonial Reproductions, Inc. The light evokes the star of a compass rose and lends a nautical flair to the waterside, open-concept living space.
The twin bunks of a lively bedroom—designed by Martha’s Vineyard Interior Design, with architecture by Hutker Architects—give stripes a starring role. We salute the sea-worthy scene, high-flying oar décor, sassy pillow talk and stow-away built-ins that make the room an inspired port of call.
