Gorgeous Porch

Homeowners: Nick Eronko and Gilbert Joseph Perez
House built in: 1914
When they bought it: 2008

"This house was about to be torn down, but we saved it from the wrecking ball. It has a great soul and energy."
— Gilbert Joseph Perez

Copy the Curb Appeal!
The Paint Colors: House: Townsend Harbor Brown; Trim: Lancaster Whitewash; Porch floor: Mink (All by Benjamin Moore)

The Shingles: Check out for prestained cedar shingle options in more than 100 colors.

The Railings: They look like they came off a gingerbread house — very storybook! Find a skilled carpenter with a good imagination to pull off this look.

The Yard: Hardy plants like Russian sage set in moss rocks mean no mowing.
