Hello, everyone! I'm Mari and I write for Arcadian Lighting, the online place to find light fixtures in all styles, along with lighting ideas and trends. It's so exciting to be here at I'm So Vintage to share a guest post with you. My topic today is Americana in home decor. This appealing look is often associated with country or farmhouse style, but it's surprisingly versatile, fitting beautifully into eclectic, contemporary and coastal homes as well. Infusing spaces with the look of Americana is what the following images are all about. Please enjoy!
This entry hall should be called minimalist Americana I think. A contemporary shaded pendant light stands in stark contrast to the carefully draped American flag on the wall.
This foyer is done in Early American vintage style very evident in the formally framed flags turned into wall gallery with AMERICA spelled across the long wall.
With an American flag hanging over the fireplace, the color story here had to be red, white and blue. The blues are a surprisingly brilliant hue, making for a more contemporary feel.
With no flags in sight, this vintage kitchen carries off Americana style beautifully with a collection of blue and white plates on the wall above glass-fronted cabinets and dishtowels on the countertop, along with touches of red. I wish we could more clearly see the red, white and blue rag rug. It's such an intriguing look.
Stars and checks instead of stripes cover the beds in this room for three boys. The small slender lamps with red shades are perfect for reading in bed. I love the inclusion of the surprising brown bedding in this Americana themed space.
This eclectic vintage space gets a touch of Americana from a flag-inspired banner draped on the front door.
Americana goes coastal in this crisp white room with red checked sofa and blue and white stripes on the overstuffed chair and ottoman.
Shall we finish with a dream space filled with Americana? Sharon Osbourne's kitchen was done by Martyn Lawrence Bullard who used pieces from her extensive Americana collection to add a personal touch to the design. The stunning pendant lights are so totally unexpected, but work beautifully in this "country house."
