New uses for old things :: The American flag is the consummate home accessory

Patriotic, beautiful, bold - The American Flag is the perfect accent piece for your home

Patriotic, beautiful, bold - The American Flag is the perfect accent piece for your home

As Memorial Day quickly approaches we become Patriotic. We'll celebrate with hints of red, white and blue. But why must we celebrate and enjoy our flag during the summertime in May and July? Why can't we celebrate her throughout the year?

I'm partial to our flag for all that she is and all that she stands for - a symbol of freedom, beauty and strength. She embodies all that we have, all that we are and all that we can be. 

She is magnificent when she billows gently in the wind, hanging from the roof of a porch. She is equally as beautiful on the side of an old barn or garage  Our flag is not only design inspiration, but design perfection and is the perfect accompaniment to your decor no matter your style - nautical, urban, sophisticated or casual and relaxed. Framed or unframed our flag takes center stage, capturing our attention - captivating us. She's dramatic. She makes a statement. 

Old or new, large or small, framed or unframed there are so many ways to add color and substance to your home decor with the American Flag.
