With summer weather right around the corner (Mother Nature-willing!), we can’t stop thinking about coastal style.
Nothing creates that quintessential beach feel quite like a gorgeous shingled house.
From New England to North Carolina, there’s nowhere that this stunning style doesn’t fit right in. We are completely convinced that putting cedar shakes on anything will instantly make it charming.
And a splash of other beautiful architectural details doesn’t hurt either!
One of our favorite architects, Patrick Ahearn, uses the staple in ultimate style.
A sweet pop of color adds even more cozy charm to a shingled home,
While keeping it neutral feels stately and chic.
A shingled house practically calls for a perfectly manicured yard, doesn’t it? Even in a home where shingles don’t cover every inch, we think they steal the show–and add interest to an exterior in droves.
Another favorite of ours? Cedar roofs, of course!
This home looks like the perfect place to spend the summer–or at least a week or so of it.
Are you planning any summer escapes this year?
If so, wishing you a getaway somewhere just as coastal and positively charming as these gorgeous shingled houses!
