the first impression is a lasting impression

As Taylor and I SLOWLY begin our house hunt, I've noticed my attraction to the outside beauty of the homes. I think it is safe to say this is a pretty normal response. Well, it got me thinking, if I had a home how would I portray the exterior? Would I want it to be inviting? Would I want it to be nestled down a drive lined with oaks, or some other deciduous tree (clearly dreaming)?  What about a porch for lazy Sunday afternoons? I guess it's good I starting thinking about these things, because it is helping us narrow down the type of homes we search for. I always thought I would want a knew construction for our first home, but the more we look, the more I find the 1950's Cottage to be so charming! Taylor, I think, is still leaning towards the newer homes, and probably not a bad thing considering the list of repairs would be much shorter. So, for today, I thought I would share some exterior inspiration. Some of these homes I found browsing for a little inspiration at work, others are homes actually on the market!





loving the porch idea a little more everyday
mixture of materials is very appealing

something about a bright exterior makes me happy
one of my favorites...so quaint and charming
