Americana Design for Memorial Day Weekend
With Memorial Day Weekend around the corner, you may be busting out your American flag inspired decor. Whether you’re looking for new ways to display pride in our country, or want to infuse Americana style all year long, we’ve have ideas for you.
Invest in large scale American flag inspired art to add a visual masterpiece and talking point for guests. Traditional images or flag prints will do, however modern, bold, or fun framed pieces, like the one seen above, will provide an element of Americana without the boldness of a standard flag on the wall.
Not into grand gestures? Think small! Pop tiny flags into floral arrangements, vases, jars, yards, or anywhere else your heart desires. The more, the merrier applies here as does variety in size.
Red, white, and blue patterned pillows layer perfectly on porches and sofas for cozy yet patriotic looks that last year round.
Another option to include year-long Americana style to your home is by thinking vertically. Hanging a flag or flag-themed art at a higher height anchors the room without overwhelming it. There’s a subtle sweetness to looking up and seeing a flag, letting it watch over the room while infusing national pride throughout.
Another fun idea is to quite literally paint a flag as an accent wall, as seen in this inspiring room above. Not only is this a fun weekend project, it will also work for all size budgets and rooms.
If you want to show the whole neighborhood how much you love the USA, hang banners, wrap railings and poles, and let the entire exterior of your home be covered in our country’s colors. Pending your local weather, you can leave this festive decor up all summer from Memorial Day straight through Labor Day.
Last but not least, bring that Yankee Doodle Dandy feeling to your design by setting a celebratory table. By adding place mats, plates, napkins, table runners, chair cushions, straws, or other items, the theming will catch every eye from kids to neighbors. Indoor or outside, this is a fast, fun, and frugal way to utilize Americana in any style you prefer from country to modern.
While we can’t all celebrate Memorial Day Weekend 2020 in the way we may normally choose, we can celebrate America all year long by incorporating Americana interior and exterior design throughout our homes. However you’re remembering this weekend, we hope you have a safe and relaxing time.
