California Beach Cottage Features Large Front Patio
Black roofing provides contrast against this beach cottage's white exterior. As night falls, the home's warm interior light floods outside. French doors open up to a large front patio surrounded by a low privacy wall.
In rainy Seattle, a covered outdoor space is a must. The punchy pink front door was this porch's design jumping off point. Hanging planters pick up the bold color. Armchairs, a coffee table and a porch swing make a comfortable sitting area. Paint colors: Shake siding: Behr Poppy Seed; Front door: Sherwin Williams Amaryllis; Stairs and porch base: Sherwin Williams Tricorn Black

Classic Colonial Home With White Clapboard Siding and Red Front Door
This colonial home features white clapboard siding and black trimmed cottage style windows, including one tall window that shows off the interior staircase. A vibrant red front door adds a touch of color under the classic front porch overhang with white columns.
Front Entry With Makeshift Mudroom, Hanging Stick and Ladder Shelf
A stick strung to the exposed ceiling beams creates a simple but attractive hanging rack for coat and clothes storage next to the black front door. Free floor space between the wall and the striped black and white rug is perfect for setting aside boots, creating a homemade mudroom. A wood ladder leaning against the wall displays a tapestry collection adding neutral tones and great texture to the space.
A cottage cabin bedroom with a built in bed and shelves is painted in neutral off white. A view of another room from the open door shows a dining area and area rug. A simple hat hanging on the door provides a cozy touch while blue and white plaid curtains lend to the overall rustic feel of the space. A floral print and black and white photography on cream colored paneled walls and painted floor make this room a quaint, warm environment.
Large Gray Velvet Sectional in Cottage Living Room
A large velvet sectional adds a darker hue to the crisp white backdrop of this cottage living room. A black leather chair and white wood stools add extra seating and contribute texture to the design. Blue-framed French doors open into the front yard and allow natural light to flood the room.
