black and white curb appeal

White homes with black trim… it’s a look that’s been around for ages, it’s a look that I have blogged about a few times, and today I have a few more of my faves to share with you all, just for fun! Don't you love this idea for different black and white tiles on the front steps? 

The wrought iron details are fab!  

A classic look with a farmhouse fence and gate.

I love the symmetry and those huge palm trees,
and circular driveways are the best! So elegant!

Modern townhouse living with traditional style.

Three stories of fabulousness in this Carolina home,
with tons of outdoor porch space too. 

White painted brick is one of my  all-time favorite looks.
I love how the front steps just draw you in... 

I love the steel framed door paired with this classical pediment.

Story book charm and charming turquoise door.

This one of my faves! -- My husband's childhood home in Geneva, Illinois. Not only did he grow up in this house, but so did his mother!

Here’s a cute little cottage in my neighborhood. The stonework really works in nicely with the black and white look.

And for all you "black sheep" out there, why not try a black house with white trim! Kind of a fun look, ya think? Well, I hope you’ve all enjoyed a marvelous Monday and MLK Day. The kids were off school today, and we just lounged around a little today, and got some odds and ends done around the house. 

The fun part for me was that I got plant some winter lettuce and kale in large pots in the yard, and then I ran over to Roger’s Gardens to get a few of my favorite herbs to fill in gaps in my garden; Sage, thyme, mint and lavender. Our lemon tree is practically falling over, full of fruit! 

And, you know what they say, "When life gives you lemons," well, you can fill in the blank, but in my case, we enjoyed this proverb to it's literal meaning. We made some fresh-squeezed lemonade.
