America The Bedroom

Happy July! Lucky for us, we’ve been gushing over blue and white for a while now, so for our July-inspired designs, all we needed to add was a splash of red. We hope you enjoy this patriotic design.


We couldn’t resist this Navy Velvet Bench {$129.00]. We are glad that we didn’t because it fits perfectly at the end this iron bedframe.


We added this non-traditional Blue and White Aztec Design Pillow [$19.99] on top to give the bench a little more dimension.


The nailhead and wooden frame are great features of the bench.


The biggest splash of red comes from this Red Quilt, which we’ve laid over a white fleece blanket. The Red Quilt [$49.99] was bought a couple years ago at HomeGoods and has been used in many designs since. The details and comfort of it are hard to beat.


The nightstands are these beautiful wooden ones, inherited from my wonderful mother-in-law. They go so well with any design and look great with this Blue Glass Lamp by Nicole Miller Home [$79.00].


The lamp is surrounded by a collection of knickknacks because who doesn’t love knickknacks? HomeGoods sure does. There are always ample knickknacks, across all departments, whenever we are there. The Iron Bird [$9.99] was also purchased a bit back at HomeGoods but we’ve seen similar since. They are so versatile within many designs. Since Pineapples are everywhere right now, we decided to throw one in. This specific one was purchased from Decor To Door (great company – check them out). All mixed with that beautiful #blueandwhite Oriental Urn, Made In China [$24.00] and some faux greens of our own in a small bowl.

On the second nightstand, we placed a glass and brass lamp (not from HomeGoods) and some, even more, fun knickknacks.


This White Diamond Patterned Candle by Chesapeake [$9.99] smells SO good and actually looks very similar to the white pineapple on the opposite side.


We then stacked these fun designed Small Salad Plate [$2.99] and Large Dinner Plate [$4.99], by Spectrum (MaxxAddict Tip: always look in other departments!) underneath this darling Mango Wood Container [$3.99] (and found in the bathroom department!) with this cute Chubby Iron Bird.


Behind this layered look, we have Hand Blown Goosenecked Glass Vase with Blue Rim [$6.00] filled with fresh Laurel leaves from our yard. This is the same vase we used on the Feeling The Blues post back a bit. Incredible how well it transfers into a totally different design.


Directly below, we placed this [Gold and Cream Speckled Genuine Leather File Organizer by Max Studio $34.99], that we use for nighttime books, lotions, etc. This is a great alternative to having piles on top of your nightstand. Everything is still reachable but not cluttering the design.


We are those kinds of people who let their dog sleep in bed with them hence the purchase of this Gray Slate Step Stool with Teak Frame by Max Studio [$39.99]. If you are not that kind of person, this step stool is beautiful, modern and durable and would work perfectly in kid’s bathroom or kitchen pantry.


And as a cherry tops a sundae, so do these fun patterned Blue, White, and Red Pillows. They all varied in price from $19.99 to $29.99. We prefer mixxing and maxxing but also appreciate the look of same same. Would love to see what July designs you concoct from finds at #TJMaxx and #Homegoods!
