The HGTV Dream Home 2015 front entrance features a covered portico with two classic columns. “Because of New England weather, you don’t want to be standing out at your front door as the rain comes down,” says interior designer Linda Woodrum.
The entryway of this Hawaiian stunner features an arched doorway with an intricate, carved wood transom and iron-laced doors. A warm faux finish on the walls gives the space a cozy, homey feel despite its grand dimensions. A covered portico protects arriving guests from the elements, whether sun or rain.
White columns wrapped at the bases with stone and soft-blue siding come together beautifully on the exterior of this coastal-inspired home. Walkway landscaping and a covered entryway with traditional white columns create inviting curb appeal.
From the comfortable chairs of this Santa Barbara covered patio, you can see the beautiful landscape design of Mark Scott and Associates that continues the home's Mediterranean theme. Stepping stones were laid in the grass, with a garden planted and bordered a few feet beyond the green space. The look is stately, serene and symmetrical in a most interesting way.
