4th of July in January

It feels a little odd to be introducing Patriotic Patch in January! The star and stripes pattern evokes memories of sunny days, poolside barbecues and family and friends taking a day to celebrate our nation's independence with the ones we love...but maybe we can pretend it's July for the purposes of this blog post?

Victorian Heart is a family-owned and operated company based in Branson, Missouri, and well, there's a lot of Americana and patriotic home decor out there, but in our opinion VHC is among the very best.

This collection is similar to the Kettle Grove pattern in that it features a primary patchwork design (stars and stripes!) with accessorizing plaids. Instead of going through each room of the house as we've done in previous posts, we thought it might be fun to just spotlight a few of our favorite items.

Today, we'll explore Kettle Grove items for the kitchen, the bathroom and living areas and everything in between. (If you missed it, check out our post on the Kettle Grove bedroom collection!)

In the shower...

The Kettle Grove shower curtain, naturally! And if you want to see more stars, the curtain coordinates nicely with the Black Star shower curtain hooks, star bathroom towel bars and towel rings, and the Olde Crow night light.


On the bathroom floor... 

The Kettle Grove star stencil braided rug has a contrasting black and tan braid with a natural jute center.


In the bathroom window... 

 The Kettle Grove block border valance is perfect accent for a bathroom window.


In your cozy place... 

A braided jute basket is a warm accent for a den, sewing room or reading nook.

Each collection has almost 100 items, so we'll be breaking them up into a series of blog posts just to make sure we give them the attention they deserve.

Today's post: completing the look with Kettle Grove bedding. The primary design of this collection features a patchwork design, but the  accessories have a really great variety of complementary textures and patterns.
