Classic American homes with covered front porches, stonework, stucco and steep roofs benefit from natural color palettes. This simple yet sophisticated combination of soft taupe with an accent of olive is the perfect backdrop for a colorful landscape.
Even though it’s less expensive, manufactured stone veneer no longer looks like the cheap cousin of the real thing. Modern versions are durable, beautiful and natural-looking. Adding veneer around the bottom third of your home’s exterior will return nearly your entire investment, and because it’s lightweight and easy to work with, you can even do it yourself.
