Inspired by: Classic Colonials

There is nothing like months of house hunting to really hone your tastes. I love a house with a distinct style. Whether its a sprawling mid-century ranch, a beautiful old Victorian or a classic Colonial, I love when you can instantly tell what a house’s style is, especially when the distinguishing original features are intact.

One of my favorite types of houses is the straightforward, salt box style Colonial¬†with 8 over 8 wooden windows. They look like they could have been standing for hundreds of years (as some have been!) and they bring to mind classic New England. They are especially picturesque in the fall and winter — they just look so cozy and stately. Here’s a roundup of some of my favorite dreamy Colonials.
