patriotic decor


 one thing i have always loved about having a neutral base in my house (white trim, white couches…) is that i can easily transform a room for different parties, seasons, and holidays.

since the 4th of july is coming up, and i haven’t done anything seasonal for summer yet, i’d do something fun and colorful on my mantel.


 i basically walked around my house and grabbed anything that was red, navy, and other shades of blue.



 i love the way it turned out!  it has a sort of eclectic/vintage/campy look, which was totally unintentional.


 the larger bunting i made awhile back for a baby shower, and the scrappy bunting is from my shop.


 i love the addition of turquoise with my red letter words canvas!


 i mentioned a sneak peek to my newsletter subscribers, and they snatched up all the bunting before i had a chance to let you all know about it!  but i picked up some great new fabrics this week and am hoping to get more made in time for the 4th.


 i also found a handful of pillows that worked along with the theme as well.  it was much easier to find colors that worked when i opened my eyes to more colors than just red and navy.


 i also added a couple sets of posy pins to my pillows.


 a super easy, quick change!

    I love the neutral color scheme and how you can switch it up according the the season or holiday. You red white and blue theme is wonderful. I’m currently in the process of going from a mustard yellow/green color scheme to a neutral color base so I can do the same. Plus, I love the wood frame above your fireplace. Very unique!

    I love this! I looked around all weekend for red throw pillows with no luck. I guess I will just search the rest of my house :) We have neutral walls and trim too, and I love the versatility.
