Something for the Weekend  – All About Americana

As we approach the 4th of July tomorrow our neighbours across the pond will be busy celebrating their independence. As they do, we here at Photoplan are reminded of all the exciting inspiration we have drawn from the States over the years in style terms. From sleek retro lines to classic “apple pie” accents or rooms with a warm western welcome – America has much to offer to the world of interiors.

So in the spirit of celebration, Something for the Weekend is taking a look at some excellent examples of Americana. From subtle stateside styling to all out stars and stripes, these American inspired spaces serve only fuel our fondness for our transatlantic friends:
