It seems like every time I pin a beautiful house on Pinterest, almost immediately the image gets repinned dozens of times. Clearly there are a lot of people out there who love houses as much as I do! I find Pinterest to be one of the best places to go for architecture inspiration, and my architecture board grows by leaps and bounds every month.
I pinned a lot of houses this month, so I am devoting a post to the top architecture pins of the month. There are some really beautiful houses and unique architecture features in this month's top architectural pins.
I initially saw just the front elevation of this house, and I was smitten. I love the color palette of the house, the portico off the front, the planters with boxwood, the dormers, the pea gravel driveway. Then I saw this side perspective, which shows the garage – I suspect the house is new, but it was designed so the garage looks like it was added on many years after the original house was built. It’s a beautiful house and looks wonderful in its environment. From Paul Davis Design.
A beautiful house exterior with a triple arched set of steel windows (one is a door), from the portfolio of Revival Construction.
A Birmingham, Alabama house that is on the market. The combination of classic style and an interesting and unique color scheme caught my eye, and the roses over the front door are the perfect touch. Note how the Chippendale pattern on the storm door matches the pattern on the side porch. The motor court is a great design element. Image source.
A classic Georgian with a light color scheme, found on Pinterest.
Light color houses with dark shutters captured my imagination this month. Found on Pinterest.
Although it is not a house, I put this gate in my architecture board as it is an architectural design element, and it caught a lot of people’s eyes. A simple but stylish gate design, and the country lane is charming. Image source.
A detail shot of the front door of this house reveals so many beautiful elements – the stonework, the limestone surround, the lantern style. Upon close inspection, it appears that the window has a shutter that is build into the window casement, almost like a storm door. Image via Carraway & Associates Architects.
This Charleston house, painted aqua with black accents, was one of the most popular pins of the month. Image source.
I like the light color and fully functional exterior shutters on this house. Note how the left two don't have the shutters...I wonder why (the left one could not have shutters and a lantern, but what about the second from the left)? The upper windows don't either. The shutter and trim color are noted as Sherwin Williams Antique White (SW6119); the stucco color noted as Benjamin Moore Sandy Brown (CC-150. Image source.
Last, but certainly not least, this beautiful house in Charleston, captured so perfectly by 21 Rosemary Lane. This was the most pinned architectural image of the month, and it’s a beauty.
These images are the top ten pinned architectural images of the month. Do you have a favorite?
