Simple Red, White & Blue decor ideas

It is a red, white and blue American flag kind of weekend. 
And though those pretty stars and stripes are popping up everywhere-
today isn't just about flags and get togethers. 

It is about honoring and remembering.

So remembering, thanking and feeling grateful for those men and women who have served our country and fought for the freedom we have today and paid the ultimate sacrifice.
So while celebrating and enjoying this unofficial start to summer-
don't forget to honor those brave men and women today.

And keeping it simple today- 
this post is a round up of ideas you can use to decorate today, tomorrow- or all summer long if you are an Americana decor loving kind.

Have a safe and happy Memorial Day everyone.


  1. Happy Memorial Day! Fun post. I am smitten over the red and white buffalo check sofa.

  2. I love black and white and recently began decorating my cottage style home with gray walls and antique, ornate furniture I have painted white and recovered in black fabric. I have been finding it hard to add an accent color and your red, black and white ideas have struck a chord so I might experiment with a few throws to see how it looks. The wonderful thing about a black and white decor theme is it never ages and always looks fresh. you can do it modern or more French country, shabby cottage as I have. I also like repainting beautiful shaped vases etc in black or white, saves money and gives a gorgeous vintage vase a great new look! href=""

  3. I trust your Memorial Day was as you had wished. I would have loved to have spent it curled up on that gingham sofa with a good book. Elizabeth xxx
