Now that the heat is in full swing, it may be time to consider spicing up your home décor with something that has more of the summer vibe. But as Fourth of July is approaching soon, what’s a better way to show your spirit than transforming your house into an exhibition of classic Americana style?  Sure, feasting on delicious dishes and going out are two ways to celebrate the big day. However, a proper Independence Day will not be complete without setting the stage for a star-spangled celebration. And that is when you can go all out with your Americana décor. There are dozens of brilliant décor styles and items to choose from. Check out some of my favorite Americana pieces below.

1. Create your Americana outdoor sanctuary
Summer means you would obviously want to spend more time outside to soak up the sunshine, which was gone for too long this year in Wisconsin. Decorate your front porch with festive flag pillows and throws, along with the patriotic red lantern to showcase your spirit.

Head to HomeGoods to find the simplest yet chic for your dream patio.

2. Goodies for national park lovers
If you are a nature-lover like me, you will be amazed by the very creative and stylish home décor at Pendleton. Their product collection is printed with designs and colors associated with all the different national parks in the United States. Perhaps it can even fuel a desire in you to travel to the grandest parks that have long been on your bucket list. What are you waiting for?
And do you know what’s even more unique about their collection? You can shop by park. That’s right. Check their website to shop by your favorite park. Mine is definitely Glacier.
