Victorian, Colonial, and Traditional designs are popular ideas for home exterior decorating. Victorian style houses are known for their detailed work with a broad array of colors used in them, while Colonial style represents the details of the homes in that era. Exterior designing also includes driveways, doors, windows, patio, and park benches. Choose the door for your house that is of highest quality and will complement the overall look. If you have a driveway, then pave it with the help of pea gravel. If your outdoor is spacious and you have a garden, then you can include park benches. Use different types of ornamental trees and bushes. You can even include flowering plants. If you have a lawn in your premises, you should mow it regularly. You should also give a special attention to the lighting of the exterior. Porch lights and other light source should be placed at exact locations, such that they improve the appearance and your home looks beautiful even during the night.
Built-in lighting is the perfect way of illuminating the porch area. Have special decorative lamps for late evenings. Avoid the regular lighting that you use for the interiors. Keep the porch lighting dim to create an ideal ambiance. Make sure that the small lights illuminate each corner, so that the entire area is properly visible. Small chandeliers can also be used to beautify the porch.
The focal point of every house is its living room, so in order to make this more attractive you can try mixing and matching various elements. The living room usually has a large window offering a panoramic view of the ocean. You can have window treatments to match the ambiance of the room. Hanging valences or drapes in white or colors like soft blue, sheer pink etc., can improve the look of the room and make it more relaxing. For the furniture, you can have slipcovered furniture. Couches and chairs made of pine is an excellent idea. Paint the furniture in white for a calming effect. An ottoman is also a good option when it comes to seating. If you have a mantel, you can decorate it with seashells, coral reef and other memorabilia from the ocean.
Even till today, the romantic, medieval English style houses manage to charm one and all. When colonist Britishers came to America, they brought their special medieval home decor skills along, and bestowed them here, in the form of Cape Cod style houses!
