Setting the character of your home

I like ornate pieces added appropriately to a home that make it stand apart from the rest. How do you set your home apart and make it unique. This home has some lattice work fastened to the open porch and has a vine growing on it. I can picture it covered in roses. Can’t you?

These arches give the home a personality. Look how they added the blue/green accent paint.

The tin roof and white bannister set the tone. The 50’s style metal chairs and dutch style screen door add to don’t you think? Very little landscaping also makes a statement.

Craftsman style with squared off features. Just like my house.

I designed my home from all the childhood memories lovingly stored in my hopes. Big front porches are also popular as we have awesome weather to enjoy most of time. Not today as there is sleet in tonight’s forecast. The above picture was taken last Spring. I wanted to mix stone, cedar siding, and brick so it looks like additions grew with the home. My goal was lots of character.

Some people live in log homes with lots of landscaping! What features of your home do you consider a point of interest?
