Cozy, Country Home Exterior With Textured Stone and Wood Siding and Covered Porch With Wood Rockers
Rocking chairs line the front porch giving this cozy, country home an inviting entrance. Stone exterior adds beautiful texture against the stained wood siding and columns. A rock walkway winds through the yard toward the home.
Take the do-it-yourself approach with a weather-proof paper wreath. To make this, you'll need to pick up a foam or wire wreath form, weather-proof paper, acrylic paint or spray paint in two colors, and adhesive dots. Fold the weather-proof paper onto itself creating a conical. Use a bead of hot glue to keep each conical held together, then glue it in place on the wreath form. Add texture and shape by placing adhesive dots on the conicals, then use the spray paint to create an ombre effect with two shades of the same color. This can also be done by hand with a paint brush and acrylic paint.
Sunny Cosed Back Porch With Wall Mounted Plants, Black Wood Floor and Ceiling Window Blinds
Ceiling blinds shade this small back porch illuminated by the natural light from the windows. A black wood floor provides a pleasing contrast to the bright white walls of the enclosure. Mounted planters create a green wall adding life and decoration to the small space.
Contemporary Farmhouse Exterior With Covered Front Porch
A metal gable porch roof with exposed beams keeps with the country farmhouse style of the exterior. Red Tolix chairs, a glowing, barn-style pendant light, and pots overflowing with vibrant green plants create an inviting entrance.
An intimate stone patio enjoys front row seats to the changing foliage around this country home. Low-maintenance landscaping and a white picket fence frame the outdoor dining space, complete with a low-key patio set.
A paver walkway leads to the entrance of this beautiful home. A mix of natural rock and mulch creates a simple yet lovely landscape around the front. The stucco exterior and standing seam metal roof creates an interesting country-meets-mediterranean facade.
