I recently completed our Villa Bonita custom build project, and I’m excited share some of the resources with you today. One of my favorite parts of this home is the exterior. It’s a crisp, white, clean painted brick with black accents and wood details. The outdoor lighting was a key element to tie the look of the home together. I wanted it to echo the clean lines of the home and have more of a modern, transitional style. Fortunately, we had the opportunity to partner with Lamps Plus for the lighting on this home. The scones I choose from their outdoor lighting collection were the perfect finishing touch for its design. Today, I’m sharing some pictures of the home and the resources for the lighting so you can recreate the look for your own projects.

I’ve shared my love of painted brick in Pros and Cons: Painted Brick and Get the Whitewash Look. Today, I want to show you a few white painted exteriors paired with a wood shake or shingle roof. It’s a killer combination that looks both fresh and full of character. While a wood roof does create additional expense and upkeep, when cared for it can last as long as an asphalt roof while looking incredibly beautiful. Wood roofs are made from cedar, pine, or spruce and can be machine-cut into shingles for a cleaner look or hand-split shake for more texture. Take a look to see how this pairing adds a warm rustic vibe to the clean crisp look of white brick.
It’s a look to love, right? For more perfect pairings, read Perfect Pairs: Lucite and Brass or Color Cominations: Natural Wood + Cool Grays. I’m always sharing exterior and interior trends that catch my eye, so check back soon for more inspiration!
This month I have been pinning a lot of exteriors with dark tones. I’ve found no matter the architectural style, dark exteriors look rich and dramatic. From crisp blacks to moody blues and slate grays, dark colors create sophistication and contrast. They make white trims and natural wood front doors pop and look beautiful when framed by lush landscapes. And since it seems fitting to celebrate these sometimes hidden gems in the month of October, here are 12 inspiring dark exteriors that caught my eye.
Thanks for visiting us for these beautiful dark exterior inspirations. To view more of my favorite exteriors you can visit here. Have a wonderful Thursday!
