A wood-burning stove is framed by two brick columns while light shines through two adjacent windows, giving balance to the neutral-toned room. A projector mounted above the sofa across the room replaces a traditional television.
The blue-gray color lends a little fresh twist to this typical colonial architecture. Like all colonial styles, Georgian focuses on strict symmetry. It is typically a box shape and adorned with shuttered windows. The style also features a paneled front door below a decorative crown, which is usually framed by simple, sometimes flattened, columns.
Red is a frequent choice for homes with a traditional look, fitting with brick, molding and columns painted white. "The old-fashioned, welcoming color for a front door is red," says Bruce Holliday of Landscape Plans Plus.
The front porch was designed to look like an extension to the home. The new stone terrace matches the brick on the home. The terrace is covered with copper roof and held up with 5 hand painted columns. The Moroccan decorative lights dance in the wind and invite guests into the home. It was finished off with a new wooden door and sidelights.
Brick walls, brick floors, a white paneled ceiling and traditional white columns lend Southern charm to this covered porch. A cushioned lounge chair provides comfortable seating and a splash of color, and a lantern pendant completes the space.
Anchored by a charcoal gray tile patio, this reclaimed brick fire pit is a comfortable, relaxing outdoor space. White columns pair with chunky wood beams to create a pergola that provides much-needed shade.
A brown metal dining table and chairs accessorizes this classic porch area. Red brick flooring and a painted wood ceiling with ceiling fans roots this porch in a traditional design. Large white columns and French doors create a dramatic entry.
This bright and open guest bedroom features an eclectic mix of furnishings and fabrics with a decidedly global vibe. An exposed brick column brings an element of earthiness to the space that's extended by the rough-hewn beam that serves as a display shelf near the ceiling. Across the room, closet doors feature a blown-up photo the homeowners brought back from Bangkok.
This contemporary white eat in kitchen has traditional columns and bar counter with upholstered barstool seating, white kitchen cabinets, hardwood floors, pendant and recessed lighting, and brick accents.
This traditional living space is lined with dark-stained recessed-paneled walls and built-in bookcases. The rich-wood look is continued with the fireplace mantel, coffee table and display column. A tufted leather chair, red upholstered furniture, gold accessories and the decorative fireplace screen add to the upscale, Tudor-style vibe.
