Sweeping grasses and colorful flowers create a light, airy landscape around this Craftsman-style home. A gray stone porch is punctuated with tapered white columns that feature rustic stone bases. Stained cedar shingles are used as the house exterior for a true Craftsman style.
In La Jolla, Calif., a Prairie Craftsman-style home is completely remodeled. The inviting front porch has stone-based, wood-battered columns that lead to the front entry door. Stained cedar shingles with rows of alternating bands envelope the house, and the garage is relocated to the front of the house to make way for a backyard pool.
The kids' room incorporates built-in antique schoolhouse style desks, separate chalkboards and gooseneck lamps, an antique file cabinet for storing craft supplies and an interior awning with cedar shingles stained dark to coordinate with other wood accents.
