Set the scene with an eclectic color scheme rooted in refreshing blue. Notes of patriotism, such as an American flag waving proudly in the breeze and subtle pops of red and white against the blue, lend themselves perfectly to the season and function as ready-made décor for holidays like the Fourth of July. Bunting in a mix of prints adds a fun, celebratory touch, while a sizeable outdoor rug, along with pillows and throws, creates a cozy feel for simpler days spent resting in the shade.
