Exteriors come in a variety of materials from stucco to stone and home plans can include timber detailing. Distinctive roofs share elements of the French mansard style, with steep slopes and dormers.
Soaring entries lead into interiors that seamlessly blend design simplicity with touches of glamour. The palette is generally neutral with an emphasis on both natural lighting and extravagant fixtures. Natural materials like exposed beams and stone flooring are right at home here, and the style lends itself well to a range of design options from rustic to formal. Look for sophisticated vintage architectural elements, like antique lighting, plumbing, or moldings.
