All American Summer Guest Room

6.22.2015

Somehow apple pie, cows and good ole red, white, and blue seem to say summer to me. I can picture folks gathering in a big pasture, with cows grazing in the distance, set up with long picnic tables covered in red checked tablecloths and somewhere there would be some fresh apple pies sitting ready to be served for dessert. Everyone would stuff themselves and then wait for the fireworks to begin at dark. Sounds fun doesn't it?

This room has that vibe going and it came together using everything I had on hand. I didn't plan it this way, but it has the cows, the red, white and blue and even some apples and basically all I did was change out the pillows.

I have a picture of apples and we'll just pretend there is apple pie. Mkay?

There's the cow plus there are more in another smaller painting of a farm.

We have the red, white, and blue. The blue checked pillows were in the other guest room, the plaid shams I bought last year and the patriotic pillow is from Pottery Barn and I had it, too.



A few shells in a large wire basket on the red chippy bench says summer, too, of course.

The star pillow was bought last year at Pottery Barn, too.








Just by switching out the pillows it creates a new feel in the room.
I love how everything works with my big colorful cow.

  3. The perfect summer guest room....now when I come to visit, I am assuming a great piece of apple pie will be waiting for me on the night stand...and maybe with a scoop of homemade ice cream...:) Beautiful room of the sense of Old Glory and nights on a farm watching the fireflies flicker....
