“Why do we love certain houses, and why do they seem to love us? It is the warmth of our individual hearts reflected in our surroundings.” T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings

Curb appeal is that special something about a house that grabs you before you even step into the door. It is the sum of all the unique details used by the home owner to express a “welcome home” to themselves and those who pass on the street.

This home owner uses yellow paint to create a feeling of warmth. A curving flagstone path flanked by flowers directs one to the entry.

The cottage style of the home is enhanced by rustic shutters, window boxes, benches, and lush plantings.

The “starfish” are a perfect touch for this beach cottage in Carmel-by-the Sea.
