Feeling festive around here! I wasn’t going to do much decorating for the 4th other than putting our flag on our front porch. I’ve been so wrapped up in a few organizing projects and wanted to get those finished first. But then I thought I’d maybe add just one banner. So I did. And it was kinda fun. So I thought maybe I’d add just two. Ok.. three banners then I’m DONE! Before I knew it one evening I went from thinking I wouldn’t do much to decking my entire house in red white and blue.
So I guess we’re talking patriotic decor this week! Because I have a lot of it. :)
The only thing I didn’t get around to was switching out my summer gallery wall pictures because they have a lot of pink in them which isn’t really working with the red.
Oh well. I think we’ll live. ;)
Here are a few pics of my patriotic living room! It really didn’t take much to add some festive touches for the 4th and honestly it cheered me up immensely. It was beginning to feel a little ground hog dayish around here (6 month long summer mostly at home anyone!?). I don’t think I realized how much I needed the pick me up!
A simple banner and beads was all I needed to update my mantel! I’ve had the together sign for years (Home Goods find) and I’ve especially loved having it up the past few months.
My cute burlap flags in a white pitcher always make easy decor for the 4th!
I also added a few simple touches in the entry. SO simple. It took all of 10 minutes!
I’ve been looking for a new console table for this spot for a while now. I moved the white mirrored table I usually have in my entry into my bedroom and love it in there! I love this rustic console table too, but I feel like it’s a little TOO rustic for my entry and I’d love something a little longer. For now I decided to stick with the rustic theme and added my beloved American Flag print (similar option here), some candles and a long time favorite navy lamp. The large wicker basket below holds a stripe navy throw.
I dug through my Christmas decor to find a red pillow! I paired it with a favorite tassel throw and done. We are ready for the 4th!
I hope your week is off to a good start! If you’re feeling a little down, pick a room in your home and give it a good clean out! Add some seasonal decor or fresh flowers, light a candle and enjoy your clean, updated space.
It always seems to work for me. :)
