Given the heaping helping of chaos and turmoil we've already experienced this year, 2020 is sure to be one for the record books. Despite everything, I personally feel more patriotic than ever. Rather than succumbing to divisiveness, I am hopeful for positive change for our country and the hearts of it's citizens.  In celebration of our country's birthday, July's Inspiration is Everywhere is a nod to Old Glory.

Fitting for any American outdoor space, this palette features the classic red, white, and blue grounded by warm neutrals.

A plaid navy and white indoor/outdoor rug anchors the warm wicker sofa with white Sunbrella fabric. Although fitting for outdoor spaces, this resilient material has become a popular option for indoor applications where you may be concerned about fading or dirty fingers.  Throw pillows in navy, white, and red floral add comfort, color and interest to the sofa's neutral canvas.  A ladder back chair with freshly caned seat offers additional seating and modest American simplicity.  Distressed antiques such as the green trunk "coffee table" and toy truck bring authentic character to the arrangement.  Star symbols are repeated throughout with quilted and textural pillows as well as the dimensional pendant.  A framed antique American flag accents the space perfectly with charm and history. Herbs in an antique wooden box, red geraniums, and decorative lanterns are the perfect finishing touches to this all-American space.
