Amp Up the Americana

by Bridget Kulla
6/27/2017

July Fourth marks the birth of American independence, and has since 1776. With the summer sun shining down and a cold drink in hand, it’s the perfect day to applaud what we love about U.S. Many celebrate the day by organizing family gatherings, loading up the grill with hamburgers and launching a few fireworks.

This Independence Day, get in the spirit by adding a sprinkle of Americana to your outdoor space. Pop a patriotic pillow (or two) on your porch love seat or rocker, decorate your front door with a burlap bow of stars and stripes, and serve up warm apple hand pies on serving trays that resemble faded jeans. If James Hardie® siding and trim clad your digs (especially the ColorPlus® Technology shades Boothbay Blue, Evening Blue, Arctic White and Countrylane Red), this USA-inspired décor will have the perfect backdrop.
