What Houzz contributors are saying:

Janell Beals - House of Fifty Mag added this to Design in America's Happiest City
Siting the home within the slope of the lot and placing large boulders and indigenous plantings around the perimeter makes the home appear as if it has grown up out of the land.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to When to Paint Your House Brown
While the focus here has been on traditionally designed homes, brown can work for more modern aesthetics, given the right circumstances. It's ideal for a home such as this one, which is rooted in place and employs natural materials. As such, it follows many of the tenets of the Prairie and Craftsman styles even if its form and structure are more International style.More ideas for exterior paint colors
