Plant life climbing the rough brick columns adds a cozy cottage feel to this home. Thin red window frames and the red brick add a touch of color to the neutral hues that make up the exterior. The gradual angles of the room are topped with brown shingles.
From the moment you step in the front door, designer Kristina Wolf played up the home's dominant Craftsman features. White interior columns and wide molding stand out against the powdery blue walls in the foyer.
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.
Identical stone columns and a charming wood gate invite visitors to step inside this sprawling Virginia estate. Follow the granite cobble driveway past the lawn and take in views of the local vegetation.
When designing living rooms with a cramped entryway, use decorative mirrors to keep the room light and bright. A trio of antique mirrors were installed to reflect the living room and bounce natural light into its otherwise small, dark entry. The column of three mirrors adds a touch of glamour to the brown hallway. Continuing the mirror theme, an adjacent living room features a large mirror mounted in a distressed window frame.
Even at a distance, the front of this vacation home is entirely captivating. Where a soaring ceiling makes the entrance seem larger than life, stone columns and planters on either side of the door establish beautiful symmetry and balance.
A sustainable Craftsman exterior with architectural details like tapered front columns showcases a modern take on the Arts and Crafts style. HardieShingle siding covers the body of the house, which is painted in Sherwin-Williams' Renwick Olive hue, while a stone walkway completes the classic Craftsman look for this home.
Craftsman architecture is notable for its practical design characteristics. The extended eaves and covered entry porch help reduce heat gain during the summer months when air conditioning requirements are highest.
Brick pavers laid in a herringbone pattern create a tasteful, traditional and stylish porch that begs for summertime conversation over a glass of lemonade. Wide columns and a deep overhang give the porch presence and add curb appeal.
