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.

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.
