To kick off the week, I have a fun 10 Pins post lined up that is sure to put you in the summer spirit. I’ve been seeing so many gorgeous exterior photographs floating around my feed lately and have saved some seriously aspirational images that are nothing short of stunning. These exteriors all scream summer to me, and have me itching to travel to some charming B&Bs for a little staycation this season. Click through for some beautiful exterior summer home images and a virtual vacation. This post is filled with timeless, classic, and whimsical home exteriors that are lush, look perfect beneath the summer sun, and are insanely charming. Enjoy!
I’ll admit, the cute dood was the first thing I noticed in front of this home exterior. I love the natural over grouted stone exterior, blue front door, and cedar shake shingles.
#2 // Historic Home in Sussex
What a darling historic home! From the old brick to the topiaries and perfectly mowed lawn… this is one that definitely felt picturesque for summertime!
#3 // Classic White Colonial
My love for colonial exteriors continue. I just love the classical look of this one, with the simple boxwood planters and pea gravel drive. Check out the gorgeous dentil moulding and functional shutters. Really pretty!
#4 // Cedar Shake Cottage
I love the mix of materials used here. Paired with perfectly green grass and a darling gate, this neutral & organic feeling exterior is one to save.
#5 // Oceanfront Beach House
I want an oceanfront beach house like I’ve never wanted a house before. Hah! Can you even imagine? This over the top beach estate is what coastal home dreams are made of. There is so much to admire here!
#6 // Garden Dining
One of the things I love most about our backyard? How shaded and private it is… this courtyard dining situation seems secluded and perfect for enjoying alfresco meals. Not to mention the gorgeous brick exterior with those incredible arched french doors. Wowza!
#7 // Polished Pool
What a view! I could certainly see myself enjoying a swim in that pool while admiring the perfect row of hydrangeas against the cedar shake background. What a classic cottage.
#8 // Boxwood Landscaping
Pillows of boxwoods, lush English landscaping, and creeping ivy… need I say more? Those Ionic columns on the front porch absolutely stunning.
#9 // French Inspired Exterior
Those arched window dormers are absolute perfection against the dimensional roof. I also really like the color palette (the shutters!), landscaping, and cute gate.
#10 // Lush Landscaping
Last, but not least- a home set back in lush landscaping that feels like the best of both worlds- intentional, but wild, as nature intended. I can’t get over those window mullions.
I hope you enjoyed this month’s 10 Pins! While these gorgeous homes are aspirational, it’s always fun to find inspiration in the details and apply that to our own homes. These lovely homes definitely have me dreaming of a summer retreat. I wish it were this green here in Utah… our grass is looking a little on the crispy side already. Ha! Here’s to a great, productive, and inspiring week ahead!
