Chip and Joanna raised the profile of an ordinary red-brick home in a quiet Waco neighborhood, giving it this bright, updated exterior as seen on HGTV Fixer Upper. The extended front porch is painted a crisp gray and the shutters are black. The gray stone chimney blends well with the soft color palette. A streetlamp and wooden window boxes finish off the details of the exterior.
Window boxes add a lively arrangement of color to the cedar siding. “The window boxes are very much a part of the Vineyard experience, and pertain to what is happening in each room so you look out and they are color coordinated,” explains interior designer Linda Woodrum.
Take advantage of the new pansy breeding by tucking Cool Wave Spreading pansies into window boxes where their stems will create a waterfall of bloom. For pansies in containers, mix a slow-release all-purpose fertilizer into soil prior to planting. This is a secret to strong growth and a steady flower show. In window boxes, pair pansies with upright coppery leatherleaf sedge, like this Bronco ColorGrass sedge.
Stucco walls pair with rustic flower boxes and a sleek iron gate to create a welcoming entrance to this southwestern-style home. Low-water landscaping makes a big impact, while still maintaining the look and needs of the property.
The balcony extends the outdoor living space of this southwestern home. Stone tiles in warm terracotta shades ground the space, which is the perfect place to dine al fresco. Flower boxes and potted trees add life to the outdoor room.
