{ Our Cozy Historical Patriotic Cottage Dining Room Decor }

Happy Friday everyone!! Jumping on here today to share our 4th of July dining room & the cutest pillow ever that inspired all of this!!First I can't believe that 4th of July is right around the corner like literally I can NOT ?! Unfortunately we aren't going up to the cottage this year..which totally has me bummed but I wanted to decorate our little suburban cottage because I LOVE patriotic decor & we have family that serve. Backing up a little bit to a month or so ago when we visited the Chelsea, MI  flea market called Finders Keepers Vintage Market  . While I was there I visited a booth that I fell in love with & spotted a pillow I loved. Fast forward to a few weeks later & Sue from the booth Maxwell-Gray reached out to me & wanted to send me one of her pillows..Umm, YES PLEASE!! She  shipped it out super fast & when I received it I fell in love all over & that's what honestly inspired me to decorate our dining room for the fourth this year, so thanks Sue!! Once I got the pillow I knew what directions I wanted to go in this year..I wanted to keep it authentic + historical style with simple greens & vintage items. I'm not one for the glitzy or "newer" shiny plastic decor, so I dug up chippy old stuff we had from collecting, junkin & marketing. Anyways enough gabbing, come see the full space & the coziest pillow below! 

This flag is from Lansing, MI. it was part of some big patriotic dedication years ago. It's huge & I'm so glad I found this while cleaning the basement out before we got everything steam cleaned & washed. I was looking for my cheapy flag I bought last year for out front with no luck & then came across this boxed one. The other  wrapped flag is a vintage find.

I needed something fun & patriotic but still cozy cottage for that corner, so when Sue from Maxwell-Gray reached out & offered to send me one of her amazing pillows it was pure magic! It fits the authentic vintage cottage vibe & pairs well with the chippy green chair.

This is another area I needed something for & just as I was about to skip it, my mom drops off this cute vintage porcelain pot! I love the authentic historical look & chipped porcelain..If I haven't mentioned this before via the blog, I LOVE HISTORY haha..true story..& a story behind it for another day.

This is the softest most simple pillow ever & I mean you guys know I love my ticking stripe...all my loves tied into one & I'm pretty much obsessed with Maxwell-Gray at this point.

I was hesitant about incorporating the terracotta color & planters in with this vintage patriotic decor but it actually brought that cozy summer cottage feel I love so much into the space! You can see our DIY Succulent Ladder HERE

Plants, greenery & patriotic decor..The epitome of an awesome Pure Michigan summer. I can't wait to show you more things we have planed for the summer...The back patio being one of them, unless by some miracle we find our 3rd home soon...please ha!

What do you guys think about our cozy vintage patriotic dining room? I hope you love it as much as we do!! Do you decorate for the holiday, if so how? I love hearing from you guys! 

Happy Friday!
