In our upstairs (once it's finished) we're going to have a long hallway that I've been struggling to figure out how to decorate. After looking at these pictures I think, at least in the summer, I'm going to hang a collection of large vintage flags. My little sister scored a really great faded vintage stars and stripes at the flea market a few weeks ago (pictured). I called her this morning and she's promised to send me a picture by the end of the day of the flag now hanging on her apartment wall- so I'll add it when I get it.
Here are some other gorgeous flags integrating into decor. Kinda makes you feel a little patriotic no?
|About nine different flag decor options all in one vignette.|
I especially like the flag hanging casually on the antique ladder.
|A painted wooden flag is a more durable option than a textile one, and it adds a folk art charm to this kitchen.|
|Nautical and fresh with a flag hung as a curtain. I bet it looks cute peaking through from the outside too!|
|Retro charm and I love how the red from the flag plays off the olive upholstery of the couch.|
|And I die. LOVE. And for the record, readers, this is just what I want someday - c.1860, white with black shutters, an open air porch. I may have to steal this house.|
|The union jack provides a welcome burst of color in an otherwise neutral space.|
|I adore this hallway. This is just how I want my upstairs hallway to look. I just wonder if my cats would try and climb up the flag...|
|I would also accept this house as my dream home...though it looks like an in-town location, and I can't abide by that. Look at that bunting though. It just makes me smile.|
|I've had this image saved in my interiors folder for sometime and I just now noticed that those are framed signal flags on the wall. They're very subtle, really just serve to compliment the portrait. I really like the bed linens here too.|
Flags and ticking go so well together.
|A really fine collection of antique and vintage flags framed as art make a striking and attractive display in an entry way. I imagine flags would be quite a fun thing to collect.|
|Flags as pillows are a great way to add a little summer flare to your family room- |
and that green cupboard behind the couch is stunning.
|This faded and worn union jack looks like it made it through some terrible battle. It adds so much texture and interest to a subdued bedroom wall.|
