What Houzz contributors are saying:
4. Neutral Orange and Traditional ArchitectureThose looking for a subtler shade of orange or to complement more traditional architecture may want to consider an orange similar to the one shown here. This shade is more tonal in that it has some taupe in it (white, black and brown), making it read as more of a neutral. If you took the bold orange hue in the previous example and added only white, it would turn a pastel orange. Lighter hues need the addition of black and/or brown to keep them from looking like a color better suited for a nursery.
Like most cottages built during this time, the house is relatively compact. 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths were built into the home's 2,300 square feet. The stonework on the exterior of the house is entirely original — the Freemans haven't changed the look of the house from the outside at all.
