Decorating with Red

These Porches Pop with Red

Decorating with red is really fun. Look how Dawn's screened porch turned gorgeous with pops of beautiful red splashed throughout.

We like her affordable and easy decorating ideas for sure not to mention the other beautiful porches we show you here.



Red works whether you are decorating for summer or anytime of the year. Even in your porch landscaping!

Dawn's Porch Decorating Story

We asked Dawn to share the story of her porch, so here goes: The wicker furniture is a rescue my Dad found for me. His neighbors were getting rid of it. I paid $25! I gave it a good cleaning and then repainted it the taupe color.

Porch decorating with red - wicker porch furniture makes a nice conversation area

I found the little wicker end table at a thrift store for $8 and painted it to match.

The rug is one I made years ago, a method called shirret, made from wool strips. I picked up some cushions at a good price and added pops of red from things I have around the house.

It all came together so well on my screened porch.

We really like how Dawn used a table runner to add warmth and a big dose of color to her wicker chair. And notice the other little pops of red, too.

For example, the coasters, the rooster, the rooster plate, the pretty plaid table coverings and the bright red pot.

She said that she found the cushions at Old Time Pottery for a good price. And you've got to love those red pillows, too. The rug that Dawn made of wool strips is very charming on her porch.

Dawn, thanks so much for sharing your porch pictures with us. Your porch rocks!

Decorating with red - wicker finds at thrift store

Decorating with red, Debbie opts for a deeper shade. We like how she incorporates pops of red in her pillows, front door wreath and American star to complement her front door. Purely charming. Thanks for sharing your picture, Debbie.

Renee decorates with red using quilts, lantern

Renee incorporates pretty touches of red in her quilt, checked curtains, and sweet red lantern. Her porch spells home and we appreciate her decorating with red!
