Traditional Colonial Home With Mint Green Exterior
This Colonial house now has a welcoming, beach-style exterior thanks to HGTV's Curb Appeal. Chocolate brown shutters and white window casing accent the cool island-inspired green color while a long front porch gives the family the perfect place to lounge outdoors.
Depicted by a simple box shape and the large central dormer, this style of colonial home is called the Foursquare. Its full-width porch and low roof with a deep overhang are also in keeping with this post-Victorian design. The simple white and green color scheme ties into the style of the home.
Georgian-Style Living Room With Curved Wall of Windows
Fun fact: The reason Colonial architecture tends to feature windows with many small “lights” (individual panes) is that the British imposed high import taxes on large pieces of glass sent into the Colonies.
