We’re big fans of white houses no matter how they come! Our fabulous friend Katie from Preppy Empty Nester’s Home is a to-die-for example of this classic look that is forever, eternally beautiful. 

No matter the size, the style or the personality, the most important thing about any white house is that you make it your own. These stunning examples are a great start!

Thanks so much for stopping by Design Chic. We always love it when you do!

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!
