Gray-Blue Craftsman Home With Neutral Stone Walkway
This stunning craftsman home features a gray-blue stucco and neutral stone exterior. A blend of gray stones, neutral stone slabs and concrete make up the walkway that extends from the driveway to the lime green front door.
Origionally, the owners of this modern California home opted for a monochromatic grey facade. However, to show their personality and accent the double canted roof, they decided to add a pop of yellow at the front and sides. Board form concrete comprises the base of the structure, which is left exposed rather than painted.

Lighted gray stairs lead from the backyard to a spacious porch. A white pergola stretches over a bar and seating area. A fire pit is situated on the other side of the porch with cushioned seating for cozy outdoor nights.
