Alabama

“We almost didn’t look at this house — it was blah beige, and the front was covered in ivy. But we did, and since we added siding painted modern gray, box columns and railings, we love coming home to it!” say Birmingham, Alabama homeowners Jamie Thomas and Ivan Skripnik.

“We added a second story in 2015, and we wanted it to really blend in. False jasmine that crawls up the columns and old-school seating make it seem like the house has always looked this way,” say Birmingham, Alabama homeowners Raegan and Alan Bellenger.

“The sweeping lawn and serpentine sidewalk going up to the front caught our eye immediately, and that yellow door jumped out, too. Together, they pull you right in!” say Birmingham, Alabama homeowners Kathy and David Shows.

“To play up the clean, symmetrical style of our Colonial revival, we accentuated it with a row of boxwood. Filling up the beds with ground cover keeps the hedges from looking too formal,” say Birmingham, Alabama homeowners Andrea and Goodloe White.
