Exterior Entrance traditional entry
 

Exterior Entrance

A large bay window is a welcoming feature of the private entry court to the residence. Accent elements of copper, stone, and leaded glass bring character to this informal cottage. To maintain the intimate scale in the larger interior spaces, I included small sitting alcoves as well as color, texture, and details to the ceilings.

I really like the attached wall lantern style light. Could you tell me the brand and if it has one or two lights inside? Thank you! Beautiful home!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Think about leading a guest from the sidewalk to your front door: Is there a gently curving path, or is it difficult to find the way to your door? If you have stairs, is there a proper railing within reach? Are porch lights working and turned on in the evening? Are house numbers clearly visible from the street?Once the basics are in order, consider adding a few finishing touches to delight the senses:Create a peaceful atmosphere and mask street sounds with a small fountain.Plant jasmine, honeysuckle or rose near your front door and be greeted with delicious fragrance each time you come home.Add solar-powered garden lights along your walkway.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Cottage Garden Style
Of course, sometimes your home will look like a cottage even with the minimal amount of landscaping. This house would say cottage even in the middle of a city. Even so, you can see the basic cottage elements, from irregularly placed paving materials to climbing plants and a wooden bench.
