design SNOOPS

Today, we are starting a new weekly blog feature and calling it Design SNOOPS! We will be snooping around a neighborhood near you to dig-up great home and garden designs and will be featuring a couple great design finds each week. This week we've captured a few goodies from Manhattan Beach, CA for you to enjoy!

This house is lovely example of Cape Cod/Beach architecture with a twist of classical elements. We love the wood shakes and stacked stone, (great color choices!) and the classical pediment, columns and pilasters over the balcony. The house is soft and bold at the same time!

Another cute Cape Cod, this version features painted wood siding instead of the ceder shake, and leans towards a more traditional English cottage facade with its white picket fence, vine-dangling arbors, and of course, whimsical garden roses. Note the use of stacked stone on the entry walkway as well which is very in keeping with the style.

If you think there is something snoop-worthy about your house, email us a pic with a one-liner about why you love it!
