Recent years have seen a resurgence of stone mixed with either board and batten or traditional siding on the exteriors of new homes. And stone isn’t just being used as an accent anymore!
This house in Columbus, Ohio is a great example of stone being used for the majority of the exterior. The homeowners offset the warm colors of the stone with Royal’s Celect 7” Clapboard Cellular Composite Shake in Frost, and complimentary white trim and white columns on the porches. The overall effect is a balanced exterior palette that highlights the beautiful warm tones in the stone.
The addition of natural wood accents over the windows and in the enclosed patio is another trend that is gaining popularity with modern farmhouse design. This is an easy element to add to older homes as well, when making updates to the exterior.
