Colonial Revival Farmhouse Front Exterior and Yard
This home would fit in perfectly anywhere in the South, but is actually located in the suburbs of San Francisco. The owners of the custom-designed residence both have Southern roots and wanted a house for their family that felt familiar.
The five-bedroom Colonial house sits on over 17 acres of land in Litchfield, Connecticut, far away from any city hubbub. To add to the calm, the property comes with apple trees, a frog pond and mountain views.
Keep a color palette simple while still making it visually compelling by mixing and matching patterns and fabric. In this hallway, the rug and accent pillows liven up the blue, white and neutral scheme.
Exterior: Pristine Georgian Colonial in Greenwich, Conn.
The beautiful eight-bedroom home, minutes from downtown Greenwich, Conn., boasts a symmetrical, rectangular shape and a formal design — hallmarks of the Georgian Colonial style. Stately white columns add sophistication to the exterior.
Sitting Room: Beach Villa Beauty in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
Start the evening off with cocktails and appetizers seated at this stylish built-in bench where the curved shape makes conversation easy. Call guests' attention to the beautiful brickwork on the domed ceiling above.
Symmetry is key for this colonial-inspired home exterior. Tall twin shrubs and sage-green shutters flank four windows, balancing the front of the home. An off-white portico and front door, painted the same color as the house, blend with the siding's color for subtle definition.
The family room area was transformed into a bold and bright gathering place. The red, white and blue palette is appropriate for the colonial architecture of the house, while the playful touches and interesting shapes are graphic, modern and playful.
Blue and White Traditional Master Bedroom With Mirror
A custom upholstered headboard, tall rectangular mirrors and antique wood nightstands give stately colonial elegance to the master bedroom. Navy blue floral patterns cover the rug and are picked up again in the accent pillows.
With 6000 square feet of living space, the house is plenty comfortable. And there's an additional 6,000 square feet in the property's top-of-the-line horse barn that includes an office, kitchen and full bathroom.
