Colorful Update

This Cincinnati home with a Dutch Colonial Revival exterior was painted a deep shade of charcoal gray with pure white trim for strong contrast, with pops of aqua and red for a fresh, urban look.

Have a Seat

The house now includes a deeper and wider front porch seating area off to one side of the bold red front door that creates an impressive welcome for visitors.

Lush Blooms

Five lush natural rattan hanging baskets with blooms on the covered front porch add nice color and texture to this outdoor space made for enjoying fresh air and the vibrancy of this urban Cincinnati neighborhood.

Natural Beauty

A selection of hydrangeas add a burst of color to the front yard of this approximately 2,056 square foot updated urban home, part of the new landscaping that also includes plants, shrubs and trees that bring lots of natural beauty to the property.

Defined Space

A railing made from pressure treated lumber and primed cedar posts painted a bright white define the front porch seating area, but also allows the sights and sounds of the neighborhood to be enjoyed.

Relax in Style

The durable black wicker sectional on the front porch has gray cushions and an elegant but comfortable look and feel, and provides the perfect spot for relaxing outdoors in style.

Pillows That Pop

Solid fire engine red and teal pillows mixed with pillows with geometric prints add color and comfort on the black wicker outdoor sectional sofa with gray water-resistant polyester cushions.

Colorful Preview

The ceiling of the front porch was painted aqua, to provide contrast for the home's deep charcoal gray exterior and give a preview of the strong use of color inside the home. A coordinating aqua knit throw on one end of the sectional sofa keeps guests warm and cozy on chilly nights.

Outdoor Entertaining

The handwoven black wicker outdoor sectional sofa that was made to withstand weather and sun damage makes it easy for guests to gather and visit while enjoying a beverage or snack.

Bold Use of Color

A furry friend enjoys lounging on the black wicker outdoor sectional sofa located just off the home's front door. The pops of color provided by the outdoor accessories and the bold fire engine red front door take this urban home to the next level.

Elegant Touch

The rectangular coffee table in the front porch seating area made from marble and stainless steel with a mirror-polished finish adds an elegant and upscale look to this lounge-worthy outdoor space.

Modern Farmhouse Sconces

A pair of galvanized aluminum and glass wall sconces flank the bold front door and add a touch of modern farmhouse style to the home's entry area.

Strong Siding

The home's new sleek and strong lap siding has a timeless look, engineered to protect and add beauty to this updated urban house with a strong architectural profile.

Eye-Catching and Durable

The home's handsome fire engine red Craftsman-style fiberglass front entry door offers the look and feel of wood with the lasting durability and energy efficiency benefits of fiberglass.

Festive Welcome

A modern-style front door mat made from coir and PVC emblazoned with the word "welcome" spelled out in off-white letters surrounded by bright colored accents creates a warm and festive greeting for visitors to the home.

Modern Seating

A pair of eye-catching lounge chairs crafted from handmade vinyl cord provide additional seating on the front porch. The striking chairs are paired with a rustic weather-resistant natural wood end table that offers a spot for resting a drink or snack.

Substantial Entry

New extra wide steps that are more symmetrical with the front door lead up the home's welcoming entry. The home previously had aging concrete front steps that were less prominent and starting to sink into the ground.

Handsome Hardware

The front door’s cylinder entry handle set with a flat black finish offers both safety and a beautiful look that pops against the red door.

Touch of Greenery

A selection of plants in white pots placed on the wide front steps contribute to the home's overall welcoming look and feel.

Architectural Appeal

The gambrel roof and smart use of color and contrast give this HGTV Urban Oasis 2018 located in Cincinnati, Ohio a strong architectural profile.

Front Yard Charm

The walkway that leads from the side driveway to the front steps of the home features tumbled pavers that add a touch of rustic charm to the front yard.

More Modern Approach

Primed cedar boards painted bright white with a gap between the boards were used to hide the underside of the front porch for a clean and modern look that offers an alternative to traditional lattice work.

Walk This Way

Stepping stones made from Indiana Limestone surrounded by mulch lead visitors from the sidewalk to the front steps of this impressive urban home that combines modern style and classic architecture.

Home Security

A yard sign lets everyone know this home is protected by a top-notch security system that uses the latest in technology to guard the property and provide peace of mind.

Blooming Beauty

A combination of annuals and perennials are part of the new landscaping, that helps beautify the home and add additional color to the exterior during the warm summer months.

Say Hello
