Everyone looks forward to the beginning of summer. School is out, the sun is shining and the smell of barbecue is heavy in the air. Kicking it all off is the Fourth of July. Family get-togethers, fireworks and fun- what better way to celebrate the holiday?! But let us not forget the importance of this day- it is a time to honor our Nation and its Independence. Incorporating that patriotism into your home is quite simple with the wide variety of decor that is now available. Ranging from country to modern, you will undoubtedly find something that fits your style. Add a statement piece or go all out and decorate a whole room. With choices from table-settings to wall-hangings, you can easily decorate any size space. One must be careful though, that with all those choices, it is easy to go overboard! The boldness of red and blue can be overwhelming so keep that in mind while shopping . I believe that keeping it simple is best. A patriotic bunting or a few americana-themed pillows is a great way to show your pride in our Nation.
But, if you prefer to make a more bold statement, go with a lively colored piece of furniture (or two!) as they did in this living space.
Maybe you enjoy being crafty. If so, here are a few ideas:
No matter how you choose to show off your patriotism, just know that your style is your own and there is no better design than the one that makes you happy.
An industry first, we were very excited to release our Drapery Solids library. Out in mid-April, we have received wonderful feedback from our customers. With an expanse of color, it consists of nine books: Berry/Spice/Lilac, Dove/Onyx, Glacier/Navy/ Spa/Wavecrest, Aloe/Leaf, Rum/Java, Amber/Gold, Parchment/Taupe as well as White/Ivory. This collection truly does have a color for every design.
Released not too long ago, our Cotton Comforts book offers classy patterns and solids. A quietly bold book, it is great for larger pieces that you don’t want to overwhelm your room. Consisting of cotton wovens, it’s easy to add these fabrics to any room.
Released earlier this spring, these multi-purpose solids are found in three books: Essential Solids, Linens & Luxury II and Velvet Touch II. They contain an abundance of colors and textures for our customers to choose from. We added new colors to old patterns and introduced new patterns with some of the latest colors. Great for a simple spring spruce-up!
