Your porch needed a fresh coat of paint anyway, right? Use deep, country hues of red or blue and then display your American flag next to geraniums or other seasonal flowers. Patriotic pillows for a swing, chair or outdoor love seat are always a good stylistic choice.

Shabby Chic

Americana and Shabby Chic designs are great friends; the homemade coffee table and antiqued seating enhance the charm of the red, white and blue for the Fourth of July and all summer long.

True Red, White and Blue

Be inspired by the American flag to create or style a wreath, flowers or even a handmade fabric garland. A personalized crock featuring the flag also looks great on the steps, especially when brimming with flowers (you can find one here).

You can also keep everything about your porch the same and add American flags to your garden, windows, display from a flagpole or use American flag lights to create a true American look.
