9 Swoon Worthy Exteriors
There are so many types of exteriors from French Country, Modern Farmhouse, Craftsman to Santa Barbara (a long time favorite of mine) its okay to love more than one. While the rest of the world is buried in snow, in Arizona we're actually starting to get prepped for outdoor living. Naturally, my mind has been drawn to exteriors, so that I might add a few touches to my own as we head into spring, which will be here in about 3 weeks.
Here are the current ones on my mind. Talk to me next week & they'll probably have shifted just a tad, but each of these have elements that I really love.
I love the high contrast on this one, with the structured hedges. I have the perfect spot for a boxwood hedge...I just haven't told my husband yet.
I grew up in a brick house & so to some degree it always feels, 'like home.' The copper roof is a major bonus.
More high contrast black & white. This is the backside of the house, but what I'm really loving is that side porch with the fireplace & TV above it. Give me my comfies, some popcorn & I'm set for a weekend movie fest.
I think every craftsman house should be required to fly an American flag. It just completes it.
Black + white...again, with the stone fireplace. I apparently can't help myself.
All about the porches on this one & the natural light that must be perfection on the inside.
Totally out of my wheel house, but executed so so great. Love it.
When done right, a Santa Barbara is tough to beat.
While I've showed you lots and lots of white & it's just about all you ever see anywhere. This. This is the one I'd pack my bags right up, leave all my furnishings behind & move right on in.

Hi, I'm Amy. When I'm not scouring the valley for the perfect new house, you can usually find me in the kitchen with a gaggle of kids. Chips, salsa and a Diet Coke are usually in hand.
