Copy the Curb Appeal!
The Paint Colors: House: Colonial Revival Green Stone; Trim: Classical White; Railing and accent trim: Chestnut Bronze (All by Sherwin-Williams)

The Flowerpots: Skip the terra-cotta! Try bright white. Great source: simplyplanters.com.

The Front Door: A true Craftsman-style door has six panes of glass. Find one in mahogany (like David's) at internationaldoor.com.

The Yard: Knock Out roses and hawthorn shrubs fill the front beds. The tree is a Bradford Pear, which blooms white in the spring.
