I emailed the designer. She was very helpful, and informed me that these are from Urban Electric Co.

The door is a very standard door that can be found at most vendors. The surrounding windows and transoms were designed custom, with leaded glass, by the architect. Hope that helps!

Hey Rhonda, those plants in the containers are boxwood and depending on your climate they can survive all year 'round.

What finish is the black paint on the door? - This home is GORGEOUS and we're painting our house to match this weekend. We are using Ben Moore Swiss Coffee in Flat Finish, and wanted to do the door/shutters in black. What finish would you suggest for the black paint?

Do you normally suggest a flat exterior paint finish and semi gloss trim? It looks great here. Worried the house may show dirt and hard to clean flat paint? Would appreciate anyone's thought on this topic!

Were the custom windows painted in BM swiss coffee or custom matched? - We are replacing our windows and are trying to decide if it is best to have manufacturer custom match the house color we choose, have the exterior of the windows primed for painting, or just select their factory white and hope for the best. Many thanks for any information provided.

Hi S.J., the window casings are painted in Benjamin Moore Swiss Coffee (semi-gloss finish), which we had the manufacturer custom make and match to the color of the house's siding (which was done in a flat finish).

The wood sidelights and transom were custom designed by the architect. The door is a very standard door that can be found at most vendors. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

Hi Judy,

Thank you for your question. The main paint color of this house is Benjamin Moore's Swiss Coffee in a flat finish. The trim is the same color in a semi-gloss finish. We hope that helps you make a decision on what color to paint your home. Let us know if you have any additional questions.

Beautiful! - Just wanted to thank you for sharing this special home. Judging by the push button light switch photo, I'm guessing this is a renovated classic? You have achieved a wonderful balance between old and new that is so often muddled when updating an older home. Truly a forever home!

It is wood and it periodically needs to be resealed. I cannot find the stain color information, however. Sorry!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kristie Barnett, The Decorologist added this to Save Money on Home Staging and Still Sell Faster
Don't automatically buy new lights. Do you have hanging light fixtures that look dated? Rather than replacing them, consider painting them black. It'll be an instant update for very little cash.
Liz Miller Interiors added this to Put On a Good Face: Design Principles for Home Fronts
HeightThe tall windows on the first floor and triple set of dormers on the second level are strong vertical elements on this facade. The slender, simple farmhouse-style square columns on the porch and equally proportioned sidelights on the front door harmonize the look. The thin horizontal details on the columns and porch roof help to subtly break up the verticality but keep the focus on the height.
Affecting Spaces added this to 10 Surefire Ways to Boost Curb Appeal
7. Paint. A simple paint job for the front of your home can work wonders. There are a lot of computer programs that let you see the exterior of your house in various color combinations. Find the combo you love most and go for it. If you grow tired of it, you can always change it.

What Houzzers are commenting on:

ianbmartin2561 added this to Swan Addition (Revision No. 2)
I'm really just trying to demonstrate that the sidelights and transom would be great at the backdoor entry into the mudroom. If possible, we could re-use the existing back door.
