The interior of this home was designed to feel like a re-creation of a darling bungalow in Napa Valley, Calif. A white, gray and black color palette is a perfect choice for the outside of the home to brighten, enlarge and homogenize its external elements.
One side of this pool house remains open to look out into the yard and let in a cool breeze. The gray sectional couch, barn pendant lights and built in cabinets make this outdoor space make feel as comfortable as an indoor one.
This home's quaint and charming exterior offers a great first impression. Accented with white trim and the stand out feature of a bright red door, this home has excellent curb appeal accented by landscaping that adds dimension and visual allure.
The white exterior of this California home shines in the low evening light. Black roofing creates striking contrast and frames the shape of the home. Two sets of French doors open out to the front yard, which is surrounded by a low privacy wall.
HGTV hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines created this spacious and updated take on a cottage style home, with European influences, wood accents, a deep front porch, a large dormer and lots of room inside. The exterior mixes cream colored stucco with shutters painted in sage green. Other exterior highlights include gas-lantern sconces, a pergola-style trellis over the garage doors and landscaping that includes climbing jasmine.
Multiple seating areas allow the owners of this charming Jamestown cottage to take advantage of both sunlight and shade. A brick patio takes advantage of this shady lot's one sunny spot with a pair of spring green Adirondack chairs, perfect for morning coffee. Meanwhile, the covered back porch offers an ideal spot for dining al fresco and enjoying the lush back garden view.
Neutral Cottage Porch Swing With Patterned Pillows
