The exterior facade of this charming coastal cottage was previously a drab, shingled brown. During the whole-house renovation, the designers reconfigured the exterior and lightened the color of the formerly dark green trim, embracing the region's prevailing architectural style and taking maximum advantage of its lush, wooded lot. A sunny brick patio offers a perfect spot for morning coffee.
In one of their more ambitious exterior makeovers, Fixer Upper's Chip and Joanna Gaines re-pitched the roof line of this home and dramatically enhanced the entry with a porch bump-out that features post-and-beam construction. The exterior is further dressed up with fresh green paint, contrasting black shutters and new stairs and railing.
This bungalow combines cedar shakes with board and batten siding to create a distinctive looking modern twist on an old theme. Lots of windows keep things bright inside and the pediment over the entrance is a unique focal point.
The curved roof of the home was inspired by similar ones the owners spotted on a camping trip to New Zealand. Natural materials and planters blur the line between indoor and outdoor living areas, drawing the tropical backyard into the home.
HGTV Dream Home 2019 blends naturally with the mountain scenery of Whitefish, Montana by using a color palette of greens, greys, and browns on the exterior of the home that evokes the area’s mountains and forests.
