Good morning, chic readers! We hope you are having a wonderful day and that, if you are in the path of Irma, you are staying safe. And friends affected by Hurricane Harvey, our thoughts and prayers are with you as you rebuild.
All of this crazy weather really has us thinking lately about how important our homes are to us.
These stunning white houses are full of charm and character. They are welcoming spaces that we are certain beckon their owners home each night. While we focus a lot on interiors, on how our favorite cozy chair and that painting we couldn’t take our eyes off of make us feel a certain way, the exteriors of our house can–and should–do that exact same thing.
If a home should be anything at all, we think it should be welcoming. Window boxes and a trellis covered in vines are two of the best ways we can think of to take a home’s exterior from plain to positively darling. It’s simple touches like this that make a home feel loved and lived in. And don’t our special spaces deserve to be cared for?
Landscaping is obviously one of the most important ways to make your home feel unique. While we love flowers and big blooms, there’s something stately about a classic cluster of Boxwoods flanking the front door. Well-maintained foliage always contributes something special to a home’s exterior and gives the sense that there is a staid, lovely interior beyond the front door.
We are suckers for black and white, but a splash of color is always welcome. A bluefront doors adds an undeniably charming feel to this impeccably manicured lot.
There’s no doubt about it: Adding exterior color increases curb appeal. Plus, it’s easy to tell visitors that yours is the house with the blue door! Porches add character in droves and make for great porch sitting, especially during the cool fall months.
What are your favorite ways to add character to a home’s exterior? Do you have any home improvement projects on your wish list?
Thank you so much for stopping by today. We always love seeing you!

When we think of Madison, Georgia, this home is what comes to mind. Or something like it. White, stately, columned, and, obviously, with a porch big enough for sitting all summer long. From the perfectly orchestrated interiors to the sprawling landscape, this is a home that makes you pause, take a breath, and say, “Wow!” But don’t take our word for it. Have a look around, take a seat and stay awhile. After all, this is the South y’all.
