Teal Door with Windows on Front Porch
Teal is a popular choice indoors and out, starting with the front door. The peppy palette is a smart alternative for a homeowner who is tired of a black or taupe door, says Georgia landscape designer Danna Cain of Home & Garden Design. Photo by The Home Depot.
This once-drag bungalow is enlivened with a new gable dormer and petite front porch, turning it into a charming summer cottage with a storybook appeal. The design team added a small master suite to the original structure that provides privacy for a lush garden at the back of the house. A sage green picket fence ties in with the exterior trim and adds to the charm.
A complete renovation turned this formerly drab bungalow in the heart of Jamestown, a small island off the coast of Newport, Rhode Island, into a charming and functional cottage. The design team added a gabled dormer and covering above the front door, as well as a master suite at the rear. The home's style complements the owner's love of gardening, as well as its East Coast locale.
Multiple seating areas allow the owners of this charming Jamestown cottage to take advantage of both sunlight and shade. A brick patio takes advantage of this shady lot's one sunny spot with a pair of spring green Adirondack chairs, perfect for morning coffee. Meanwhile, the covered back porch offers an ideal spot for dining al fresco and enjoying the lush back garden view.
Quaint Cottage-Style Home Exterior With Beautiful Landscaping
After: A brick path was laid in three different levels with the lowest level at the yard's gate, the middle level at the seating area and the upper level near the entryway. To save money, the window sashes were painted a bold red that popped against the existing house color.
Porch Lights, Planters Establish Symmetry and Balance
With identical light fixtures and planters on either side of the door, the front porch exudes symmetry and balance. A window at the end of the hall frames the ocean, transforming a natural feature into a living piece of artwork.
Vibrant Cottage Yard With Natural Rock Wall and Plush Mix of Flowering Plants and Shrubs
A mix of flowering plants and shaped shrubs create beautiful levels and textures to decorate the natural stone yard in this cottage yard. The blooms add soft color shining against the vivid green grass.
