French Country Cottage

Cottages Home Tours

French Country Cottage because if I had to pick a favorite, French country cottage would be at the top of the list like this home on Houzz.  The cottage is listed under landscaping by Wheat’s Landscaping who call this French Country cottage project of theirs, Summer’s Garden, I call it magnificent.

French Country Cottage The whole house and landscaping are full of noteworthy features like the color of the trim and shutters at the entrance.
Window boxes with topiatry shrubs
The house is gift wrapped in landscaping.  The upper window boxes with topiary shrubs in them also boast flowers blooming in season.

Landscaping design ideas
The trim color haunts me to know the exact name and brand.  I am thinking of it as a muted sea green.  What color do you think the trim is?  From the pitch of the roof to the dormers, shutters, and window boxes, I love it all.
