With this fresh fall season comes crisp air, warm spicy scents and lovely orange glowing landscapes to be enjoyed. Everything that sets the tone for cozy campfires and curling up in a chair for some quiet weekend reading. The symbiotic balance of two worlds coming together with simplicity and comfort. This reflects the Interior Style we recently seem to have gotten swept up in: Modern Farmhouse. By intertwining these two design styles, your space will come together with warmth and welcoming in a current and inspiring way.

Clean lines and neutral palettes set the tone with an emphasis on practicality and functionality. Allowing furniture and storage to take the limelight. Your color palette has base Creams and Greige tones paired with colors in earthy shades. While adding subtle vintage colors giving the feeling you get from the comfort of home. Furniture styles entice you to “mix-it-up” using traditional styles paired with more contemporary details including pickled and limed wood finishes. While lighting fixtures and accessories take on another life in matte black or wrought iron and light wood finishes.

Use natural fabrics of wool, cotton, and linen in stripes and plaids. Lots of textures paired together create that comfy cozy feeling. Add in layers with layered area rugs and chunky throw blankets.

Bringing Blue And White Decor Outdoors For Simple Holiday Decorating

"Ev'ry heart beats true 'Neath the Red, White and Blue"  ~ George M. Cohan

Summer holidays mean firing up the BBQ and getting together with family and friends entertaining outdoors. While blue and white decor is an Interior Design favorite, creating stylish outdoor spaces can be made simple. Celebrate our countries Independence Day in style with adding pops of color to this classic foundation. With colorful chairs, lanterns that glow, a great rug and plenty of throw pillows. After sweeping off the patio and setting the stage add elements of nature with bright red roses and soft white hydrangeas placed in ginger jars from inside. This will welcome your guests and make them feel at home. Here are a few decor resources to get you started.

A great armchair is a smart way to make a statement. These chairs from Wayfair, Safavieh and Bungalow5 are a perfect example of this.

Garden stools and sides tables can be used inside and outdoors for added surfaces. For example this Safavieh garden stool is very classic, the Annie Selke and Wayfair tables are more of a modern touch.

You can find these vividly patterned rugs at Annie Selke, Safavieh and Safavieh.

Create a pattern play with these stunning indoor outdoor pillows from Birch Lane, Surya and Birch Lane.

Finally go out with a bang and make your guests swoon with these accessories located at Annie Selke, Birch Lane and Wayfair.

Stay safe and have a great July 4th!
