Red, white and blue- it is everywhere at the cabin...
...the small hutch I repainted...
Even on the porch: our rocking chairs...
...and the girls' rocking chairs and side table too
But where did all this red, white and blue inspiration come from?
I am so glad you asked.
Part of the answer is, I was trying to create a "man" retreat for Mr. Cabin. He built the cabin with his bare hands so he kinda deserved it. Plus, bless his poor soul, he is ordinarily drowning in a sea of cottage white and pink at home with two little girls. The cabin style is the polar opposite of the cottage look we have at home and it was important to me that our home-away-from-home look and feel different.
The second part of the answer is this piece that inspired it all.Two years ago, during our Fourth of July cabin trip, I found the antique store score I am most proud of to date. Tucked deep in the back of the store, nestled beneath piles of other furniture was this wonderful truck. Even though it was dusty and dirty I immediately feel in love with it's distressed red, white and blue. After I put the trunk in the trunk and drove it back to camp, Mr. Cabin liked it just as much as I did. The rest is cabin color scheme history.
Mr. Cabin re-lined the inside of the trunk with cedar so now its a great spot
to store extra blankets and linens.
Hope you enjoy your red, white and blue wherever it may be.
Happy Independence Day!
