Patriotic Entry and the Wall Art

Hi Friends! Earlier in the week I posted about the wall art that we finally got up in the Living Room. I've had these few pieces here in the Entry up for a bit longer, but just now getting around to doing a post. I wanted to wait until we finished the front door and porch. So now that that is done, and it's near the 4th of July I have a bit more to share.

I've had a lot of projects so I've been a little lazy on changing out the iron urn here on the console. It's had faux paperwhites since I cannot remember when, but since I love me some paperwhites, I've just adapted them to whatever season it might be. Using a few cemetery flags gives the urn a little patriotic flair. I didn't go over the top decorating for the 4th, I decided to use just a few "nods" throughout the house.

I have been trying to stay seasonal with my antique prints here on top of the console for the accent piece. I love this one because it's of an English Cottage during the Summer. The Sunflowers are the give-away. 

I haven't shared this spot yet. On the opposite wall is my little Frenchy dresser. It has the granite and brass candleholder right now, but it looks a little lonely; it may be subject to change. I was able to use one of my vintage cow prints and frames above it as it's a pretty big piece of wall real estate. I painted out the frame on this one when we moved to the last house to better match the wall color.

Here's the Living Room from the Entry Hall

To the right is the Hearth Room and Kitchen.
Lovely thermostat. At least it's white and sort of blends in.

More British Castles prints.

I'm so much happier with this door color. It's still in the "orange" range, 
but much less loud and crazy. It's a deeper persimmon color, 
Spicy Hue by Sherwin Williams.
Miss Wrigley is enjoying the view.

I mentioned I'd finally get to show the new neutral drapery panels from the Garden Room. I've looked back through my photos and cannot find a good one of the set on the doors. These are this same pattern, though. It's really an interesting palm frond theme on a fabric similar to a 50's bark cloth. It just doesn't match anything I have. Cute, but not me.

Here's a bit of one side.

I found a neutral canvas/cotton fabric with a tab top to replace them at Penneys. Kinda bland, but at least there isn't a war with pattern. I have the drapery acetate "pulls" attached to keep from manhandling the fabric.

These are the windows into my office, and have white wood blinds. I didn't really need the blinds, but the windows looked unfinished without them.
