Beautiful Home Exteriors and More

A while back I posted about exteriors that were inspiring me for our new home.  Here are the latest ones that I am collecting...maybe for if/when we end up building our dream home!  You'll notice they are all a very neutral color which I really prefer for an exterior.  I think it's classic, but some may call it boring.  What do you think?

charming painted brick
I love how welcoming this home is!

covered patio, upper terrace, steps, greenery
The balconies and varied outdoor areas add so much.  The pool doesn't hurt either!

Wood color, balconies, landscaping -- charm

Love the ivy

wonderful foliage on garage

A beautiful courtyard feel and everything draws your eye to the front door.

back patio / exterior colors
Love, love, love that window!

garage doors...lovely
A beautiful garage is a very good thing!

Structured and grand

This just makes you want to come in, doesn't it?

spanish-style home ... similar glidden paint colors: stratosphere and meadowlark
Gorgeous, subtle color combo for a spanish style house with nice details.  Although I'm not sure about that back part??


Any favorites?

Sources and many more beautiful exteriors can be found on my pinterest board here.

Since I live in a white house I would have to say I like neutral too. All these homes are beautiful, warm and inviting for one reason or another. For a change of pace for me personally I would take Charlotte Moss' penthouse.....;)

Enjoy your day!

The houses are all lovely but my favorites would have to be the one with the pool and the last one! To die for! My house is neutral as well and I guess I would always choose that! Have a great Sunday!

That third picture down is my favorite...a dream, always a sucker for lots of lush foliage and ivy climbing the facade!

The second and third home are my favorites. Both appear so welcoming and the exterior is gorgeous.

Have a great start of this new week!

Just catching up here. I can find something to appreciate and enjoy in each picture. I love a front door that calls and beckons to me. For that reason I keep going back to your first two pictures and the third from the last picture. Those are my favorites.


Victoria said...

The first image makes my heart beat faster and the third from last (Oliver Messel in Barbados?) is beyond fabulous. I wouldn't turn down any of the others either. Like you, I prefer a neutral color exterior.

I do not find the color boring at all. Those shades suit every type of house just perfectly. It is pleasing to the eye and it gives your exterior a classy and elegant appearance.

Replacing an exterior home trim can add to the freshness and beauty of your home. The trim is an important part of your house's design, even though it may be the last remodeling project that you may think of. It can emphasize the beautiful architecture of your home, as well as draw attention to windows or to your front door.
