Modern Bungalow

WHOLE HOUSE RENOVATION AND ADDITION
Built in the 1940s, this cottage had an incredible amount of character and personality but was not conducive to the way we live today. The rooms were small and did not flow well into one another. The renovation of this house required opening up several rooms and adding square footage to the back of the home, all the while, keeping the curb appeal of a small cottage.

I wish there was a site with only homes that mention the paint color schemes. I also appreciate people who share; it isn't as if everyone in the world would copy that color scheme.

Just painted my little 1978 remodel Kelly Moore Apple Hill with Frost trim. Going to have black front door. It's a work in progress but the light green is more a soft gray and it's beautiful! Posting pics soon.

Just looked at the Pratt and Lambert site, and I think the color is "Coos Bay", which ironically is a town in Oregon--and I know someone who grew up there. What do you think--right color?

I've seen similar ones at Lantern & Scroll. I bought my lanterns from them, I looked at Flambeux but the quality was not nearly as good, and Lantern & Scroll's were less expensive! Yay! www.lanternandscroll.com Ask for Karen and the free shipping!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This tiny porch and its pediment give this home loads of curb appeal. From the Chippendale railings to the comfortable rockers, a welcoming entry where you'll want to stay awhile is evident.
Element: Sidelights. Flanking the front door, they dress up the entry slightly more than the pilaster-lintel combo. Sidelights can be found on either side of paneled or French doors.How to make it your own: For the same effect without reconfiguring your entry space, try swapping out a solid door for one with windows.
Can you have a rocking good time out front? Even a small front porch calls for old-fashioned rockers. It's also a great spot for watching the world go by. Porch swings, wicker chairs and benches are other great front porch seating options.Check out 11 inspiring small front porches
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to No Entry Hall? Create the Illusion of One
Build an entry, Take 2. Take the previous idea from the inside to the outside. Many homes whose front doors enter directly into the living room also have a roomy front porch, like this one. If this porch were walled in, an entry would be created, protecting the interior from dirt and the elements.
