Brick is used over the entire outside facade with a stone chimney that matches the roof's color palate (cheaper than using stone more comprehensively). The white trimming here lightens the front and gives the house more texture.
The entrance is simple and symmetrical, using a beautiful mix of materials and a calm and timeless color palate--and the greenery around gives a softness and lived-in-ness that makes this doorway unique.
An example of a pseudo-neutral with white trim, grounded a bit by the dark door and window framing. This green could easily be a gray or camel color, or the stark white trim leaning more towards cream.
Fabulous dormer windows giving distinction and interest to the front of the house (and I imagine a great view from within) but not standing out too starkly. The white pillars and trim tie well into the window trimming.
A much cooler palate, and in reverse: the shutters are the darkest part here.
With enough exterior texture and windows, variations on a theme of white look clean and classic.
Creamier color here. I love how the chimney is flush to the house but stands out pleasantly. I love how the windows in all their sizes and combinations are similarly shaped, pleasantly lengthening the house visually. Another example of a dormer window integrating well--very traditional here.
The base of the pillars have been created out of the same materials as the house. They stand out but with great continuity. This could be done beautifully also with brick.
A darker color with white trim. All of the details of this front exterior are uniform and clean. Elegant, classic, timeless, warm.
Completely different house style, but these garage doors are a great example of an unconventional but traditional-looking garage door.
Here the front garage door is given a shade lighter of the same color as the house, giving it a clean distinction but also allowing it to not stand out too much. No stark white door here.
Another unusual garage door.
And yet a porte cochere ["coach door"] can be a beautiful and useful alternative for a front garage.
