My All American Front Porch - Northern Michigan


I love red, white, and blue. Every summer our porch is tranformed into a patriotic retreat.
From the street side.
Another view.
Up close.
Even the pots get dressed up for the 4th!
My favorite geranium color. I winter them in the upstairs bedroom window.

    Hello Diane! I am a contributing writer to the website Houzz.com and am doing a piece on porches decorated for the 4th. I was wondering if I would be able to use your porch images in my ideabook? All links back to you would be included, of course! Please let me know as soon as possible, and thanks! Sue@Country Design Home http://www.countrydesignhome.com
