This home's black wrought iron railing and banister enhance the entryway without blocking the look of the brick exterior and columned front porch. The porch, which has a curved portico, was created by Atlanta Decking & Fence.
To up the curb appeal of this petite cottage, the plain front door was freshened up with the addition of a small portico perfectly in scale with the house. The door itself is a pale blue, a nice nod to the seaside setting.
The front of the home was reimagined with steps leading to a more pronounced portico. A stacked stone veneer dresses up the singled facade, while the addition of a carriage style garage door adds extra charm.
As seen on Home Town, the existing exterior of the Carson house was lost on the street with plain white siding and few distinguishing features. After the renovations, their Laurel, MS house now features a new copper roof entry portico, cedar window boxes to highlight the painted blue wood windows, new wood shutters, and a fir wood door. Host Ben Napier custom built the new working blue wood shutters.
Landscape designers Mark Scott and Associates' design for the exterior of this lovely home shows their know-how in developing a concept and carrying it through. The exterior of this home, while lovely on its own, is strengthened by the type and placement of the landscaping, such as setting a straight line of planters against rounded portico entrances and adding green space to divide the garden area from the house.
