Wow!! Practically overnight, our weather went from needing a winter jacket to needing the air conditioning to cool down!! Oh well, that's Chicago weather...wait ten minutes and it will change. What we love at Design Studio is the opportunity to change with the seasons and to celebrate warm weather with red, white and blue accessories! This happy punch of color reminds us it's summertime and the living is easy.

Planning a barbecue, graduation party or Memorial Day/Fourth of July picnic??
Dress your table and your home in iconic red, white and blue.

Set out a basket of Frisbees, Whiffle Balls and maybe a croquet set and enjoy being outside!

Red geraniums are the perfect accessory on your serving table. How about creating a summer salad using greens, strawberries, blueberries and crumbled feta with a berry dressing?

Use the stellar stars as shown for a table runner or unbutton to make four placemats!

Fill a red wagon with ice and bottled beverages. Make Caprese Salad Kabobs by skewering grape tomatoes, mini mozzarella balls and fresh basil leaves...drizzle with a light balsamic vinaigrette.

For dessert, top vanilla frosted cupcakes with raspberries and blueberries.

Light up your holiday with our mercury glass star votives and enjoy these beautiful days!!
See you at the shop!!
