Storage with a white picket fence motif echoes the fence that greets visitors as they enter this Brentwood home. The light green walls, polka dot rug and vibrant blue and pink chairs keep this girl's bedroom feeling energetic. A confetti comforter continues the colorful, fun feel while anchoring the room with its dark color.
The swing-bed pergola defines a space for homeowners to sit back and enjoy their backyard. Palm trees were added to add more of a resort-vibe to nights by the pool. Touches of home can be seen in the columns, which mimic the front porch, and dainty white picket fences on either side.
Hedgerows, hydrangeas and a graceful arbor create a lush and welcoming entryway to this waterfront retreat. The Cape Cod-style home rests on half an acre of landscaped property and features water views from every room. Shingle siding, myriad gables and even a white picket fence combine to make this home a picture-perfect example of New England luxury living.
This once-drag bungalow is enlivened with a new gable dormer and petite front porch, turning it into a charming summer cottage with a storybook appeal. The design team added a small master suite to the original structure that provides privacy for a lush garden at the back of the house. A sage green picket fence ties in with the exterior trim and adds to the charm.
The exterior façade of HGTV Smart Home 2013 pays homage to classic shingle architectural style with a wide front porch and fiber cement siding designed to mimic the look of cedar or cypress shakes. Planted between the picket fence and the front porch to draw attention, needle palm will grow to a height of 4-1/2 feet and provide needed massing in the landscape.
