Home Exterior With Brick Entry Columns and Brown Roof Shingles in Layered Angles
Plant life climbing the rough brick columns adds a cozy cottage feel to this home. Thin red window frames and the red brick add a touch of color to the neutral hues that make up the exterior. The gradual angles of the room are topped with brown shingles.
Rustic Cottage With Stone Steps and Cottage Garden
Rugged stone steps lead to a personal botanical garden overlooking the mountains. The rustic exterior of the cottage is marked by green trim, wood shingles and a tin roof, and the hardy cottage garden is surrounded by a stone retaining 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.
This stately home was softened with beautiful curves to compliment the brick lined walkway and dramatic pool. Every nook and corner in the landscape was a perfect opportunity to create a creative landscape vignette.
Cottage-Style Home With Brick and Cedar-Shake Siding
This ranch home combines a variety of building materials to create an adorable cottage look. The brick siding, cedar shakes, slate patio tiles and stone planters mix beautifully with the swirled topiaries, pine-needle mulch and flowering window boxes.
Floor-to-ceiling windows in the bonus room on top of the garage allow for better views of the yard. The main house, with its modern exterior, contrasts starkly with the cottage look of the carriage house.
First impressions are always important, and you can set the tone for the rest of your property by carefully selecting exterior components that give your house a personality. This natural stone walkway, lush landscape and warm exterior add sophistication and wow factor.
This once-drag bungalow is enlivened with a new gable dormer and petite front porch, turning it into a charming summer cottage with a storybook appeal. The design team added a small master suite to the original structure that provides privacy for a lush garden at the back of the house. A sage green picket fence ties in with the exterior trim and adds to the charm.
Make a nod to your home's environment with a color palette that matches its surroundings but still packs curb appeal. This traditional home's soft pine green base pops with an accent of sky blue and an understated creamy white door.
