Case Study 1: Standout Windows

Paint:
Inspired by other Craftsman homes, the homeowners chose a soft sage green to cover the patchwork of aluminum, vinyl, and wood-shingle siding. They added dimension by painting the window and door frames dark hunter green, then surrounding them with crisp white trim.

Porch:
To warm up the existing cold concrete slab, the homeowners laid red-stained mahogany decking on top and tacked simple white fascia boards to the front and sides, giving the space the look of a new wood deck. Stockier wood posts replaced rusted-out thin metal poles, visually anchoring the front of the home and adding period-appropriate detail. An Arts and Crafts-style overhead light took the place of two small sconces that previously flanked the door.
