The outdoor space wouldn’t be complete without a spot for a four legged family member; therefore the HGTV Doggy Dream Home was built in the same Cape Cod style with creatively designed food and water window boxes.
Fall containers, window boxes and hanging baskets complement established plantings at this country-style home. Mums, ornamental kale and grasses, and decorative accents like cornstalks, dried flower wreaths and country-style ornaments complete the inviting harvest display.
HGTV's Fixer Upper transformed this once awkward atrium into an open-air herb garden with wooden window boxes and planters. Located right off the kitchen, the courtyard is the perfect place to entertain guests around a rustic table.
This ranch home combines a variety of building materials to create an adorable cottage look. The brick siding, cedar shakes, slate patio tiles and stone planters mix beautifully with the swirled topiaries, pine-needle mulch and flowering window boxes.
To create a tailored look in a simple, monochromatic kitchen, designer Teri Thomas chose a valance and Roman shade in the same fabric. She used a custom-printed fabric from Galbraith and Paul for both the shade and its box-pleated topper, says contractor Duane Johns of Advanced Renovations.
The neutral color of this Spanish-style home makes a perfect backdrop to a beautifully landscaped yard. Bright colors pop in flower beds and window boxes against the home's facade. Application details that complemented the existing architecture were added around the windows and front porch.
The stucco overlay that had given the windows their Gothic shape is also history, allowing more light inside the home. Intricate trellis work adds Spanish-style detail to the home. Well-planted window boxes will provide color to this Southern home throughout the seasons.
While the front yard may be small, this home relies on colorful flowering plants to provide a lively outdoor look. Several shrubs and bushes line either side of the entrance, while similar flowers cascade from window boxes and perfectly complement the rust orange shutters.
Square, shadow box-like windows line this living room wall, allowing a peek into the nearby galley kitchen. Decorative vases are showcased within the windows, while light hardwood floors finish off the look of the space.
Dichondra 'Silver Falls' accents bright 'Blue A Fuse' petunias and 'Breathless White' Euphorbia in a hanging basket. Dichondra is a great "spiller', or trailing plant, for window boxes and other containers, too. A herbaceous perennial in zones 10 to 12, it can overwinter as a houseplant if you're careful not to overwater.
A pale dove gray for the exterior and a darker gray for the shutters creates a soft, sophisticated mood for this two-story traditional home. A wide brick path takes visitors up to the front door in style. Evergreen landscaping and a window box on the second floor adds a touch of color to the space.
As seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper: Chip and Joanna Gaines brightened up the exterior of this 1958 ranch house with fresh paint in a soft cream white balanced out with dark shutters and window boxes in natural wood. New landscaping, and an update to the front porch with a new railing, columns and sconces, help elevate the curb appeal.
