    Love it!

Exterior: The Front Door | A classic screened door hung over the front door lessens the entry’s formality and sets a relaxing tone. Gas lanterns in a stainless steel finish from Bevolo complement the house’s cool color palette.

Exterior: The Swoop | Because 90-degree angles and straight lines are less often found in nature, architect Ken Pursley’s hand-drawn curves lend an organic, artistic touch to his homes.

Exterior: The Sides & Back | The Palmetto Bluff Idea House proves that a modest house can still be dramatic. The cheerful colors, familiar barn forms, and classic materials balance the home’s impressive back side.
