 We’re holed up at the beach and summertime dreaming this week. And no homes say “summertime” quite like cedar shake cottages.

 The architecture on this house is undeniably lovely, but, even on a plain house, cedar shakes instantly transform the landscape.

 Pretty porches and interesting rooflines are just the icing on a cedar shake cake!

 And when the porch view is a lovely lawn of wildflowers, it only adds to the Spring fever.

 Pretty landscapes are always the perfect accent for a gorgeous home. Pinks and white flatter cedar shakes just perfectly.

 Any color front door looks wonderful on a cedar shake house. But, of all the choices, we think wood might be our favorite.

 Nothing makes a welcoming statement quite like loads of lights. The reflection off of the swimming pool is perfect for nighttime entertaining.

 Big, beautiful, sprawling spaces are great.

 But, especially in cedar shake, small and charming is almost even better.

 The winding green path to this garden guest house is such a fabulous accent.

 This sprawling estate is just the sort of place where family bonds are forged and a lifetime of memories are made.

 A pebble driveway is one of our favorite ways to make an entrance.

On the beach, the mainland and everywhere in between, cedar shakes make one of the loveliest statements we know of. 

Are you a fan of cedar shakes?
