Summer Decorating in Red, White and Blue
Happy Memorial Day! Is there any holiday more refreshing and full of anticipation of great things to come?? Winter is finally over, and the lazy, hazy (and currently rainy?!?) days of summer are definitely here.....beach days, picnics, gardening, and lounging on the deck or patio. Although I've never been the owner of a summer/lake home, if I was, I'd definitely want to keep it fresh and "cottage-y". Nothing says summer better than red, white and blue. Bridging all three patriotic holidays ---Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day ----summer is definitely the time to decorate with our country's colors. Here are some of my favorite pictures decorating with the colors of the flag!
Love these twig beds!
Notice that almost all of these rooms use simple stripes. Here they combine a vertical one on the sofa with a horizontal stripe on the chair. Fun!
Very "Ralph Lauren-y"!!
A special Memorial Day sale for all of you blog-readers ----next week (May 31 - June 4): All jewelry and watches 50% off!! One week only!
