The sunny yellow facade of an Atlanta estate home surrounds an intricate door of wood, wrought iron and glass. Green spiral boxwood topiaries add another elegant element to the entryway. The home was the setting for the 2015 Atlanta Symphony Associates' Decorators' Show House & Gardens.
Origionally, the owners of this modern California home opted for a monochromatic grey facade. However, to show their personality and accent the double canted roof, they decided to add a pop of yellow at the front and sides. Board form concrete comprises the base of the structure, which is left exposed rather than painted.
The craftsman facade of the HGTV Dream Home 2013 shows an elevated front porch with support piers and exposed steel hurricane strapping to prevent storm damage. A horizontal mahogany porch railing stands out against the sage exterior and Southern yellow pine timber beams.
