Decorating for the Fourth of July isn’t just a front porch thing at my house. With the heat and sudden storms, I am prepared to entertain indoors for the holiday. Our little community celebrates with a little ‘hometown’ parade in the morning and a fireworks display in the evening. The 4th of July is a fun time to participate in all the festivitiesThe view above is looking toward the front of the house. The beautiful model boat sits in an opening that had shutters in it when we bought the house. We removed the shutters to allow the light from the front windows to flow into the family room. I love looking through from the sitting room into the family room through that stunning model. Patriotic pillows have come out of storage to show their stars, stripes and americana messages for the summer.

A pair of chesterfield leather sofas from Restoration Hardware flank an oversized coffee table. Before the table arrived I told a friend the coffee table didn’t have a nice top. I meant that the top is distressed and rough and perfect for putting your feet upon! A dozen flags on the mantel meant I didn’t need to add any red, white or blue to my coffee table vignette.
Now that my darling granddaughters are gone I could safely style my coffee table. It was nice to get out my nautical and beachy treasures and have them on display.
I left glass bottles from springtime on the fireplace. I removed the blooming branches and added of American flags to the containers that were already there. The wooden stars are from Target‘s bargain section I thought they were a steal and they add to the patriotic styling of the fireplace.
The desk in the foreground is where I do most of my writing. I enjoy being able to not be tucked away in an office elsewhere in the house. This is a nice oversized desk from World Market! It is inspiring to to view my family room and the tavern room beyond. The desk makes a handy resting place for a drink or a book for those sitting on the sofa. It was delightful to look up from my computer and see a granddaughter’s grin over the back of the sofa.
That beautiful model boat came from Williams-Sonoma. I searched extensively to find the right thing for that opening.
The books I have on my coffee table right now are The Nautical Home by Anna Ornberg and Coastal Living Beach House Style. These are great coffee table books and have helped inspire me as I style this new home. A white and silver lantern displays flags and more of those red, white and blue stars. This sits upon my re-worked bookshelves turned sofa table. The other end of my mantel has American flags planted in an oversized jar in addition to red wooden and a white metal star along with a rustic monkey fist knot and a folded American Flag. This looks so nice against my shiplap fireplace wall. The tavern room is also ready for guests to arrive for a festive holiday meal! You can see more of my Fourth of July tablescape here.
