5 Reasons We Love Tudors

1. Tudor Revivals are modern-day reinventions of medieval cottages from the 1500s, so they have that totally enchanting English countryside vibe, even in the burbs.
2. No two Tudors look alike, thanks to half-timbering — those strips of wood (usually painted brown)that make one-of-a-kind patterns on the stucco or brick.
3. Their peaks (known as gables)make them so pretty! They rise up over dormer windows, doorways, and even the garage.
4. With their stone archways and house-hugging bricks, Tudors are warm and welcoming.
5. Simple, evergreen landscaping looks lovely. You could do flowers, but you sure don't have to!

Copy the Curb Appeal!
The Front Entry: An arched front door framed with stonework looks so fairy-tale. This mahogany door is extra adorable thanks to the round window (like an oversize peephole). The large gas lantern is the icing on the cake. Find a great selection of outdoor lighting at savannahcopperlanterns.com.

The wide chimney: Creeping fig growing up the brick and two chimney pots pile on the charm. Check out chimneypot.com for similar clay styles.

The Pretty Patio: Flagstone is as beautiful as it is durable: It can last for centuries!
