The House

“Our Italianate home has a stately look, with its tall windows and elegant dentil molding, but the fresh white color, wraparound porch, and brick-lined walkway make it inviting," say homeowners Kara and Matt Henderson.

Elongated second-floor windows appear even more impressive thanks to the ornate molding above them. The porch roofline has it too. And, to top it all off, the placement of the hanging baskets accentuates the porch’s curve. The couple alternated ferns with showy bright pink vincas that flower all summer long.

Design-Pro Door

An arched window brings a bit of interest to an otherwise simple black door. “We’ve never considered painting it a different color,” says Matt. “It’s classic and the perfect match for our white siding.” (Design-Pro 1/2-View Camber-Top fir and fiberglass door)
