Although most homeowners plan their home's exterior lighting scheme to illuminate after dark, there's an entirely different vibe created when lights are turned on at sunset. After dark, the lights are the main source of illumination around the home, whereas during sundown, string lights simply add a subtle glow around the roof, eaves and railings. We love this!
This classically styled French Provençal home is situated on the high side of a La Jolla, Calif., lot with views of the Pacific Ocean from nearly every room. The home’s exterior is a composition of smooth Santa Barbara stucco, light tan-to-gold-colored rustic and carved stones, stained wood eaves, elegant Génoise roof eaves and rustic clay-tiled roof.
This home has all the classic architectural elements of a prairie-style home. long flat roofs with big eaves, rows of windows and horizontal lines. Developed in the Midwest by architectural trailblazer Frank Lloyd Wright, the prairie style was built based on the idea that a home should serve all practical needs without being overly embellished or showy. It was influenced by the Arts and Crafts Movement and features many of the same concepts such as built-in furniture, simple materials and open floor plans.
