Cohesive Character

A new house gets some character with the addition of landscaping, bold new colors and fun accents.

Nora and Bob Clifford live in a home that was built just a few years ago, and that’s the problem. Like most recent homes, it lacks real character. The house color is pink and the architecture is a mixed bag of design with contemporary, Mediterranean and ranch all wrapped into one. Plus, the landscaping is dull. Designer Doyle McCullar has a plan to breathe new life into this house and create a cohesive look using bold colors, fun accents and landscaping.
