This bungalow combines cedar shakes with board and batten siding to create a distinctive looking modern twist on an old theme. Lots of windows keep things bright inside and the pediment over the entrance is a unique focal point.
Large columns and a dentil-molding pediment frame a grand entry to this home. A beadboard-style wood door adds a touch of vintage style, while the ornate door handle provides much elegance. A traditional evergreen and pinecone wreath is the perfect final touch.
The exterior of this Greek Revival home has a classic pedimented gable and four elegant columns. Architectural detailing can be found in the fascia and eves and a crawl space helps this home stand tall.
With limited space along the front façade of this home, every space that could contain plants became a planter. Framing the house with soft edges include a Japanese Maple and a Magnolia, boxwood globes, bacopa and carex grass.
Neutrals, pastels and bold colors combine unexpectedly well with classic details, exuding excitement and charm in this master bedroom. The pediment-shaped mirror and four-foot tall ceiling fixture accentuate the dramatic ceiling shape and height, while bringing the room into balance.
Simple pediments over the doors dress up the entrances to this cozy living room. Soothing colors are found everywhere from the walls to the chairs to the plush area rug. The distressed white round coffee table adds an almost cottage-esque touch to the room.
Greek revival architecture began in America as a snub to Britain and to pay homage to the spirit of democracy. This style was first seen in Philadelphia, however in later years it became a popular on Southern plantations. Tall columns and pediments, painted plaster exterior, horizontal transoms, symmetrical shape, bold moldings and embellishments are all key to the style.
