The unique stone wall of this Transitional style garage is beautifully lit with a pair of wall mounted lanterns and custom doors. The beautiful lanterns provide subtle exterior lighting in the evening as well as adding dimension.
A slanted wood roof supported by columns stretches over a section of this gray stone patio before it opens up fully to the outdoors. Lantern-like sconces are mounted to the columns, adding a lovely yellow light throughout the space. Natural wood benches provide seating with the exterior wall of the home serving as a backrest.
Ivy wraps up around the columns of this gazebo, giving it a cozy, cottage-style feel. A white exterior keeps the space extra bright and inviting in the sunny weather. Large potted plants frame the accordion door opening, and a hanging lantern fits the style perfectly and offers event lighting.
Although the house is new construction, built in 2018, it meshes prettily with New Orleans' historic style. Railings are wrought-iron, outdoor lighting mimics gas lanterns, wood shutters are painted palest gray.
Fireplaces that project out from the wall are ideal for flanking with a bookcase, a cabinet or both, as is done here. Their heights, color and basic framework is kept the same for a consistent look. To draw attention to the fireplace, the overmantel is covered in reclaimed barn wood and exterior lanterns adorn the wall instead of interior sconces.
Steel, limestone, wood and concrete mingle on this exterior for a textural, contemporary look. A black framed French door with sidelights and a transom window makes up the front entrance. Modern lantern sconces flank the front door.
HGTV hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines created this spacious and updated take on a cottage style home, with European influences, wood accents, a deep front porch, a large dormer and lots of room inside. The exterior mixes cream colored stucco with shutters painted in sage green. Other exterior highlights include gas-lantern sconces, a pergola-style trellis over the garage doors and landscaping that includes climbing jasmine.
