Coastal Cottage with Green Trim
A complete renovation turned this formerly drab bungalow in the heart of Jamestown, a small island off the coast of Newport, Rhode Island, into a charming and functional cottage. The design team added a gabled dormer and covering above the front door, as well as a master suite at the rear. The home's style complements the owner's love of gardening, as well as its East Coast locale.
The exterior facade of this charming coastal cottage was previously a drab, shingled brown. During the whole-house renovation, the designers reconfigured the exterior and lightened the color of the formerly dark green trim, embracing the region's prevailing architectural style and taking maximum advantage of its lush, wooded lot. A sunny brick patio offers a perfect spot for morning coffee.
The soaring contemporary design of Element House in Florida draws inspiration from the nearby Gulf waters. The graceful arching roof is meant to echo the gentle Gulf waves, and the color palette borrows greens, grays and whites from the ever-changing colors of the water and sky.
Kelsey and Trip Purks purchased an older home with an outdated appearance, but it is in a great location and within their price range. The original exterior of the house was white-painted wood with red shutters and the landscaping was overgrown. They have asked Fixer Upper hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines to transform the look of the home to better suit their style. Chip and Jo have repainted the siding a modern gray/green and the shutters black. They kept the original Dutch door and painted it with a faux finish to look like a dark stained wood grain. They updated the landscaping and added new grass, as well as a new walkway that matches the brick of the chimney.
Along the back of the house, a concrete patio blends gracefully into the grassy backyard that features views of San Diego's Mission Bay and Pacific Beach. An aluminum trellis decorates both the first and second floors.
Rustic Green Home Exterior With Stone and Wood Accents
This private 13-acre estate features a light green siding exterior paired with wood and stone accents, giving it a rustic look. Evergreen trees line the property, while a stream and pond provide a natural backyard water feature.
This expansive deck is divided into three separate areas: a casual dining space, a cozy lounge and a conversational hangout with a fire pit. Although all three areas share the same laid-back approach, each presents a different function.
A round patch of bright green grass creates a crisp vignette in a courtyard of this grand estate in Auckland, New Zealand. The four-level mansion is surrounded by a lushly landscaped property bursting with amenities and activities, offering the ultimate in luxury living.
