Creative Patriotic Touches

Love this patriotic porch from Saavy Southern Style!

With this being an election year, Memorial Day this weekend and Independence Day just a month away, we are feeling the inspired and thought it’d be fun to share some cute ideas to bring some patriotic touches to your home!

Pillow inspirations from The Inspired Room. 

Personally, changing pillows is the easiest and economical way to tie in new colors, patterns or themes. To add a patriotic touch, think ticking, thick stripes, classic stars (shapes or patterned), even polka dots to give the eye the overall feeling of a recreated flag. Here you can see some of our red, whites and blues at the shop.

A mix of patterns in red, white and blue give a less-literal take on the patriotic look while still looking stylish and contemporary!

And don’t forget to add buttons for a nice detail too!

Great button detail from The Cottage at the Crossroads.

And hey! Why not frame Old Glory? The beautiful thing about our grand ole high-flying flag is not only the stirring and passionate hard-fought beliefs it represents, but it’s beautiful too!

Feeling the Blues in the best way!

There is something about Springtime that makes you crave clean, fresh and bright. Lately we’ve been seeing gorgeous versions of classic blue and white and it has us all so inspired. We even have an entire corner of the shop dedicated to it! So, we’ve compiled a few of our favorites in the shop and thrown in a few fun ways to use it around the house too! We hope you enjoy!

Mixing patterns and textures can be an easy way to update a piece seasonally. Here, mattress ticking is paired with a snuggly chenille throw and two contrasting pillows. If you notice, one pillow hearkens to the pattern and color of the chair, while the other gives a nod to the darker navy blue accents in the room. The trellis patterned rug gives the eye a nice spot to rest.

Our display currently at the shop magnifies that principle. The cobalt chinoiserie chair compliments the abstract cobalt rug mixing traditional and modern quite nicely. The textured fabric of the chair on the right is extended throughout the look thanks to the nubby blue throw tossed on the chair to its left.

To top it off, the lamp brings the look back full-circle to the chinoiserie slip-covered chair giving the scheme a cohesive flow. Add a little striped ottoman and you have a modern classic look that is cool and fresh for Spring and Summer!

Try living in a world without pillows. Sounds horrible, right? Comfort aside, adding decorative pillows can create huge impact without breaking the bank and you can change them so easily, as your mood and the seasons dictate!

Here, shape, texture, color and scale are used to demonstrate how all fifteen (15!) patterns could be mixed and matched together  in various groupings and still create a scheme that looks intentional and stylish, whatever the theme.

The Charm of a Vintage Chair

The Hickory Chair Furniture Co. began one hundred years ago in Hickory, North Carolina with a single product and a simple vision. The product was a made-to-order dining chair.

hickorychair1911The vision was to combine the authenticity of classic craftsmanship with the efficiency of modern manufacturing. In the decades since, the product range has evolved into an assortment of timeless designs, drawn from significant periods and places, and from the talents of some of the world’s most respected designers.

Guided by a genuine commitment to custom craftsmanship and timely service, the Hickory Chair Furniture Costyle is still distinguished by an authentic, timeless spirit. As  a proud Made in the USA manufacturer, almost 90% of their furnishings today are made in their Hickory, North Carolina workroom.

While Celebrating 100 years of Hickory Chair, we are showcasing their vintage style with our very own treasures. It was love at first sight when our girls found these adorable vintage cane back chairs with solid wood construction and a charming decorative brass handle.
