Summertime Vignette in the Great Room

As you know already, I love pulling out the red, white, and blue in the summer.  It’s not as much a patriotic thing as a fresh, breezy thing.  Those colors just feel like summer to me.  You might have caught a glimpse of it already in other great room photos that I have posted, but I wanted to give you a closer look at the little vignette I put together for the coffee table.

This cute oval galvanized tray stopped me in my tracks when I saw it in a store, and I knew it would get a lot of use at my house.

These little blue and white saucers that I found at an antique mall make perfect coasters.  I added some old keys for interest.

I have three of these candle holders in different sizes, and they have been all over the house.

The lavender came from my mother’s garden.  I will soon be getting some fresh lavender from this year’s crop.

Just a touch of red makes this arrangement patriotic and summery.  That’s it for the summer vignette in the great room.  All of the little changes that I have made in there make the room feel cozy, summery, and light.

 

Take care.
