Curb Appeal

In the mountains, summer issues a fresh invitation to consider the context enveloping our homes. The more time we spend entertaining outside, the more we see our homes as sites to behold and beckon. Recognizing this tantalizing potential, we offer strategies for sprucing up your homes’ curb appeal:

Continuous Cozy

Transform a covered front stoop into a cozy spot with an inviting yet sturdy accent chair and a vessel with gravitas and botanicals (the ingredients we always use to make a nook inviting). No matter the weather, this vignette welcomes with warm hospitality.

Sneak Peek

Picture windows, particularly when flanking a front door, provide a sneak peek at the aesthetic intrigue that awaits inside. Curate the framed view with statement pieces, like a monumental painting or a sculptural console.

Highlight Light

The layered architecture of this front facade calls for a quiet complement in minimalist landscaping and accents. As such, the light fixtures became a moment to shine—quite literally—with a statement sconce at once sculptural and serene.

Happy Hour

When approaching from the road, outdoor patios can serve as invitations to socialize. In the mountains, no party is complete without some sort of campfire camaraderie; this built-in fire pit, encircled by classic Adirondack chairs, makes a kumbaya moment out of any soiree.

Featured Finds

Greet guests with character; one-of-a-kind finds, like this antique wheelbarrow repurposed as a planter, convey your creative joie de vivre. Such stylistic flare hints at the inspiration to come indoors.
