Front Porch Flag

July 10, 2013


 We bought a flag!  This is really exciting news around here.  It's been on our to-do list since we first looked at this house back in January.  
I'm sure y'all remember when I talked about my dream front porch a few weeks ago.  You can see that nothing has been done.  No big front porch reveal.  Just a flag.  Well, updates happen slowly around here but I'm not apologizing for that.  In fact, I think it's important for you to see that our home is evolving slowly and in real time.  For anyone who's curious which size we went with, it's the standard 3x5 American Flag.
Of course, now I'm re-thinking my plans for a coral front door in favor of a traditional glossy black.  I think it might look better with the flag front and center.  What do you think?   Can I still do a colored door?

  2. I would still do the coral colored door, or a different bright and fun color if you choose! I love colored front doors, and it's something that can also be changed if you decide you don't like it!


    The flag looks great, I am loving how "colonial" your home is looking!!

  3. Love it-adds a nice pop of color! I'd still opt for the coral door, or maybe a beautiful blue like BM Woodlawn Blue or Palladian Blue...

  4. I think you can still do a colored door although I don't know about coral. Maybe a fun blue? I really like glossy back too.
    Its funny how you can think you have a new house all planned out and then as you do things, your ideas change. I think everyone does that.

  7. I love the flag! I definitely think flags add something great to the front of a house. I agree with above- that a glossy black door or blue door would look great!

  14. We always have a flag flying from our front porch and yes, since I painted my door SW Cherry Tomato I regret it - I feel like we look OVERLY patriotic, like puke-y patriotic! Re-painting is in my future - again!

  15. i love flags! if you go for a pop of color, i would say go for a blue. but black would look nice too!

  16. Heck yes to a colored door!! We have a flag flying and an awesome turquoise door. I don't think they fight with each other at all. But glossy black would be awesome too!

  17. Are you going to fly the flag every day? That's wonderful if you do, but if you don't fly it daily then you can definitely do any color you want on the door. The flag will be an element that adds a patriotic pop of color and graphic punch. In terms of wardrobes, its a scarf or statement necklace and I bet you pair those items with other colors and patterns in an outfit sometimes. I guess I want a coral door so badly that I want you to have one!

  18. When I buy a house, it absolutely MUST have a front porch that can accommodate a nice flag... It's always been one of those things that I've wanted. I also want a railing or something that I can hang those little half circle red/white/blue banner things on for patriotic holidays!

  20. I have a coral front door and my husband hung a flag at our place a few weeks ago. Not the best combination of colors but I don't think that's the point.

  22. The flag looks fabulous! We have one on our front porch with a glossy black door here in Raleigh, but when we lived in the Fan, I had a flag PLUS, a door painted Southern Belle blue by BM. We also had traditional brick... But nothing better than Richmond doors! http://m.benjaminmoore.com/paint-colors/color/southern-belle
