I’m always in awe of homeowners who can pull together such a welcome entryway. The pots are stacked perfectly, it’s the right balance, the colors speak well of the style, and it evokes a warm feeling. I instantly want to meet the folks who live there.
The dormers are of course a hallmark of this style home. The steep black roof becomes part of the charm with these accent pieces. They would look different without the gambrel look to the trim. I’ve not seen a pitched dormer with a gambrel trim and it is unique. Most trim would mimic the roofline of the dormer.
Every angle of this home is well thought out.
Be sure to enlarge the photo above so you can see how the ladder-back chair is placed beside the azaleas. The texture works so well in this setting. I have learned a lot from this homeowner who I apprecaite for showing such beauty in all seasons.
I took this photo just last winter and I made a mental note to myself—go back and you’ll not regret it. We gardeners, you and I, can follow our experience and know it will be a feast for the soul and eyes. It was. I nearly fainted when I saw how beautifully the owners had orchestrated the flow of seasons. And you know, it’s not expensive touches they have used but it is well thought out and that makes all the difference. Bravo!
