5-Minute Makeover: The Fourth of July Edition with House of Harper

When we approached Caroline at House of Harper to take on our Fourth of July themed 5-Minute Makeover, she was immediately on board. “It’s no secret I love all things blue and white,” Caroline says. Working with her patio’s everyday look, she layered in bright accessories she can continue to use in other spaces after the holiday. “When it comes to celebrating the Fourth, it’s all about adding touches of red, she says.”

“When it comes to celebrating the Fourth, it’s all about adding touches of red.”

Caroline was able to pull off a festive but approachable transformation by incorporating small pieces with big impact. “I think the pillows made for the most dramatic change … and they’re the easiest thing to add or swap out from season to season, she says.” Planning ahead, Caroline made sure to choose accessories she could integrate into other parts of her home post-holiday. “I’ll move the red pillows to the side yard where they’re not styled with the blue and white … and the blue and white dishes are perfect for outdoor entertaining year round!”
