Our front porch is entirely covered and I plan to use this space as a place for sitting and container gardening. One of the things I love the most about the Midwest is the American flag that dots the porches of tree lined neighborhoods. In coming up with a color palette for the front porch, I wanted to use red as the main accent color. Red is certainly a departure from the colors that I've used in the past, and I'm really looking forward to stepping out of my comfort zone and creating a space that's colorful, comfortable and inviting.

|Love the petunias with the American Flag in the background. Our porch will have similar square columns, painted white.|
