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!

Three of dozens of great accent buttons at the shop currently.

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!

Gorgeous framed flag inspiration from Life as a Thrifter. 

Have any of these ideas inspired you? Come in to the shop to see all the different patterns we can mix and match for you to create this look for your home too!

Have a safe and reverent Memorial Day weekend, friends!

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.

  • What is CAbi you might ask???

A company with humble roots, a leadership team with integrity, and a vision to empower women.

From the moment CAbi was created, it was more than a brand.      springCAbibeach

  • From the moment CAbi was created, it was more than a brand.

As a little girl, Carol Anderson loved fashion, so she pursued her dream as a designer.  After working for a design firm, Carol teamed up with a good friend, who believed in her designs and took them to Nordstrom, where she became a beloved brand. She quickly garnered a loyal following in other department stores and boutiques across America.

The retail world began to change, and Carol felt a lack of creative freedom as stores expected a certain look from her label.

In 2001, Carol, her husband Jan and their friend, Kimberly Inskeep, sparked the idea of testing the concept of sharing the clothes with women in a home surrounded by friends, rather than in a traditional retail environment. Carol and Kimberly asked ten of their dear friends, who they knew would be passionate about this idea, to join them as Founders. This was the beginning of CAbi, Carol Anderson by invitation.

  • It’s not simply the outfit but the style you own.

Not just about the way you look, but how you feel. It’s not simply the outfit, but the style you own. It’s not only the compliment, but the conversation.

Ultimately, beyond great fashion, cabi is about the connection. From the moment cabi was created, it was more than a brand; it was a vision to bring inspiration, confidence, and a lasting sense of community to generations of women. Knowing our greatest days are ahead of us, our empowered network of friends has become a catalyst for the biggest evolution in women’s fashion. The true essence of cabi isn’t just about the clothing; it’s about the relationships we build—each encouraging us to discover our style and inspiring us to mix and match what we wear with the way we live. Cabi simply is … You. Inspired.
