Americana

Americana style is all about tailored linens, historical elements, traditional furnishings with a rustic quality,  and of course,  red, white, and blue!  It’s a casual and comfortable style that can be incorporated in many different ways.  We prefer a classic approach with natural wood furnishings and lots of textured accent pieces.  Here are some items we are loving that give a nod to this patriotic-style:
