From French Provincial to sleek, modern rectangles, to cantilevered levels that seem to float over a coastline, home façades are as varied as the people who design them and live in them — and we’ve seen a lot of great ones at Stylish Eve over the past year. You’ll see houses here that were used as movie sets, restored mansions from an earlier era, and dignified manor homes. Homes can rise up as concrete walls that seem to have sprung whole from a rocky hillside; they grace a desert oasis with lovely two-story porticoes and long, multi-paned windows; or they can be at the end of a “rainbow” native stone driveway. Even in the back yards of these homes, some of the sights are breathtaking — such as the multi-story mansion with twin stone staircases descending to the graceful lawn and garden below, with everything including planters seemingly larger than life.

These home façades can be ivy and weathered brick…or adobe against a backdrop of painted canyons. They grace homes all over the world — from Georgia and Utah to Dubai, Johannesburg to the Hamptons, England and Australia to the heart of New York City. They have lighted skylights that are covered in “garden” and look into an artist’s studio…and Spanish courtyards hidden from view except from a tiny bedroom balcony. They gleam like jewels of light from endless windows against the sky…or keep their counsel behind up-lighted warm wood grain and concrete walls. And, yes, they can even feature towers, turrets — or spires and stained glass! Endless variety means no matter what your style question, you’ll doubtless find it answered here, in home façades with the ultimate in “curb appeal.”
