white house, black shutters



I know I’ve blogged about this before, but I can’t get enough of this classic curb appeal style. There’s something so familiar about a white house with black shutters. This is the look of the all-American dream home, but the style can vary from region to region. This first photo is of a beautiful house in Newport Beach. 

Now, compare it to the more historic New Orleans style with the fabulous red door. You have the ever popular Cape Cod style, and then we see this stately southern Victorian cottage style. The thing I really love about this color palette is it's so flexible. And, I’m seeing it more and more around my neighborhood on lots of new modern farmhouses.


Here’s another beauty from here in Newport Beach,


and one in Beverly Hills.


Here are a couple of great examples of this updated farmhouse look. These renderings are from a new community in Eastside Costa Mesa called Tablelands. I can’t wait for the model to open in May. It’s being designed by Shannon Wilkins of Prairie Home Styling, and she’s doing the specs for all the homes in this community. She’s a favorite designer of mine and her own home was featured on last year’s Newport Harbor Home Tour.  


Surrounded by gorgeous flowers, this last home is just dreamy.
