Looks exactly like my dream fairy-tale house. - Would love to know where I could buy that planter. Why was only one planter used? I tend to go for a more symmetrical look and am just wondering about the design idea here for having only one. Am learning so much from this web site. Many thanks from Boston!

Beautiful home! What color paints were used here? - What kind of paint and paint color that was used for the dark brown areas and the cream color areas? Also, what is the color of the windows- are they metal? Or are they painted, and if so what type and color?? Thank you!!!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to How to Design a Storybook Cottage
Making the scale and the relationships between parts just a little off can keep the whole thing from taking itself too seriously. For example, you can have the front door pinched and squashed just a little under an oversize bay window. And you can let the gable end announce itself, flaring out to make itself heard above all the noise. A place where Disney meets Tudor should be just a little off if it’s going to make sense.
