To highlight the Craftsman design of this 1930s home, designers replaced the rotting, yellow siding with contrasting white siding with black trim. This color palette preserves the Southern charm of the historic, Southern home.

An exterior shot of this tiny slice of paradise showcases the floor-to-ceiling windows and the front door trimmed in white. Semicircular planted areas feature short shrubs that add appeal without taking over the exterior of the house. The black paint is a bold finish against the lush, natural surroundings.
A pair of striking basket-weave outdoor sofas sit beneath a decorative grid on this contemporary terrace in Reno, Nevada. The home's geometric design is crisp and modern, and fits in well with the rugged desert terrain that surrounds it.
