Red, White, and Blue

Chinoiserie Chic

I hope everyone is poised to enjoy a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. Here are a couple of my favorite examples of red, white, and blue with chinoiserie flair.

One of my favorite books on decorating and entertaining is the late Joe Nye's Flair. Hopefully you have this in your library as it has been out of print for years. (If you click the link in the caption, there are a few used and new copies for sale.

  1. Happy Memorial Day! Heading to the Venice Symphony Patriotic concert and fireworks tonight and looking forward to a fun evening. Thankful for and remembering our Gold Star Families - everyday is Memorial Day for them.

  2. Good morning, Beth, and happy Memorial Day! Thank you for the remembrance. I keep thinking I need to get an American flag to fly, but I know that one is supposed to take it down during inclement weather, and I don't know the proper way to fold the flag!

    My gardener is here to do a project in my side yard that I've wanted done for some time now. I love this time of year when the garden is at it's most beautiful.
