Red, White & Blue Palette

The palette is a nod to summer’s main event, but also to the picturesque lakeside setting (practically a Norman Rockwell painting), which inspired Small to pull elements of the lively nautical landscape into the design.

Get the Look: In Tate’s room, the headboard and pillows are custom. The buoys are from Brass Anchor (231/869-4200).
