I've talked about porches and patios before, but sometimes the outside of the home itself gets lost in the shuffle in design discussions. There are some really beautiful examples of thoughtful house exteriors. Above are a few of my recent favorites. Some are more traditional, while a few are quite modern-looking. I absolutely adore the second one, a little beach home. I like the mix of wood, metal and stone. I'm attracted to the top one for the same reason... combining lots of different materials. Which one do you like the best?
