Painting the shutters and front door black on this traditional home creates a visual rhythm. The white picket fence and stone columns framing the white gate provide a beautiful frame for this well manicured yard.
This adorable home in Key West, Florida is rich in charm and character. When the owners wanted to expand, an addition was constructed to the side and back of the property to preserve its jewel box facade.
A white picket fence stands guard at the front of this contemporary farmhouse. Complete with a tin roof, stone chimney and inviting front porch, the home is a picture of country charm. The third-story tower offers an unexpected twist in typical farmhouse design.
I am a firm advocate of the "good fences make good neighbors" philosophy and have also noticed how effective a fence can be in keeping door to door salespeople at bay. I also like how the white picket fence and pergola (all built by my husband) draped with fragrant jasmine visually defines the parameters of my garden.
