Weekly Start Off: No 15

Happy Tuesday, April 2, 2013 readers! I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend and holiday! I took a little three day weekend. I can't believe we're already in April, is it me or did March just fly by? For today's Weekly Start off post I decided to focus on architecture. The following homes all have different architectural influences and fantastic outdoor spaces. Each home has something that makes it standout. Prepare to be inspired!
1. Located in Virginia, this home's architecture pays homage to both classic American and early Italian design. I love the architecture, and landscaping. The center courtyard leads you to a fantastic fountain. The backyard is a very calming place. The variation in planting is what gives this backyard that 'wow' factor. A great new top for tending to the garden.
2. A classic white house, located in upstate New York. This home is very grand and looks like the perfect place to entertain. After one arrives they are greeted by a large staircase that leads to the front door. I'm not a huge fan of the far left expansion to the house. A new look to make your entrance down that fantastic front staircase.
3. Talk about a fantastic front porch! This home is located in Italy and has sweeping views of the city and lake. The architecture of the home is extremely Italian. What makes this home impressive is the moldings around the windows. I can definitely see one entertaining on either the first floor porch or the second floor terrace. A new look for an afternoon entertaining outside.
4. Placed on an archaeological park is this brilliant, historic villa located in Italy. The drive that leads to the house is lined with fantastic lilac. The home is surrounded by trees and flowers. What a wonderful place to raise a family. In addition to being around such wonderful greenery is a pool. A new look for a picnic on the back lawn.
