~* Presidential Inspired Home Accents from SYW *~

Tomorrow honors President Abraham Lincoln’s birthday, while next Friday pays tribute to our first president, George Washington’s birthday. And with the Presidents’ Day holiday celebrated in between on next Monday February 18th, now is the perfect time to accent your home with presidential and patriotic themed decor.


Folk Art Interpretation

Pay tribute to your favorite president with select presidential portraits and prints available at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop. For example, if you’re like many other Americans who have gained a new gratitude for our 16th president, due to recent films and documentaries in the past year, we know you’ll love our new Abe Lincoln Folk Art Print; pictured here to the left. With a straight forward face and a serious tone, the artist Tim Campbell paints honest Abe in true folk art style. Display the framed, textured print on a wall in the family room or study, or┬ápair with our Mary Todd Lincoln Print for a striking wall arrangement in any room.

Red, White & Blue

Presidents’ Day reminds us of the Founding Fathers, colonial America, and brings out the patriot in all of us. Many will celebrate next Monday with a day off from school or work, and parades, speeches, and other events will ensue. Give your home a good helping of red, white, and blue with new Americana inspired decor from Sturbridge.

New for winter 2013, our Americana Star Table Runner shown here to the left is the ideal way to add spirit to your table space. A mixed patchwork of red, white and blue, is formed of 100% cotton chambray fabric with a cotton flannel lining; the runner is thus lightly padded for your table surfaces. A khaki center features a circle of eight blue stars and it reverses to the red and white check only for alternate looks throughout the year. Pair with our Set/2 Americana Napkins (also shown) for a completed table setting.

Colonial History

At Sturbridge, we have an appreciation for American history, and we know our customers due too. Incorporate historical themes into your home decor during this time as well, for a cohesive feel.

The Colonial Flag Wall Panel, seen below, showcases an American flag that appears weathered over time. The flag depicted is that of the 13 Star flag, as made first popular by Betsy Ross during the early days of our country; the circle of 13 stars represented the original 13 colonies. Its image is printed directly onto reclaimed and paneled, solid pine wood. Display vertically or horizontally above a table, bar, or mantle shelf.
