While we all want a spectacular home that stands out among therest; we also want a home that blends with its surroundings andneighborhood.
Designing the exterior of a home can be a complicated process ofcolor choices, materials, balancing shape and lines.
Do you ever wonder what makes a home exterior visually appealing?Why are there certain homes on the street that make you stop inyour tracks and gawk in awe of its beauty? It is more than likelythat those jaw-dropping homes have followed some key designprinciples. Yes, every design, interior or exterior, needs tofollow some simple “rules” of design in order for the final outcometo be visually appealing.
1) Balancing Shapes With Symmetry
Like in all types of design, balance and symmetry play an importantrole in achieving a well-designed space. The facade of every homeneeds some semblance of balance and symmetry in order to appearpleasing to the eye and properly designed.
Whether it is the eye-catching appeal of a symmetrical Georgianhome, where the door is centered and the windows equally flankeither side, or a home where the balance is achieved throughpointed roof lines or dormers that are equally placed among theexterior.
There are numerous ways to achieve a proportional homeexterior—some through obvious symmetry, while others are not asapparent. Either way, a properly designed home has an exterior thatis proportional and balanced.
2) Form Follows Function
Louis Sullivan, Frank Lloyd Wright’s mentor, coined the phrase,form follows function. Essentially, this means that the purpose ofthe building should be the starting point of the design.
What is the purpose of your home? What do you plan to use your homefor? Consider all your families needs and then decide what isrequired in your home in order to accommodate those needs.
The exterior of your home will mimic the form of the interiordesigns that you have chosen. Maybe you are an artist who choselarge windows because you need natural lighting to paint/create.Maybe you needed a granny suite over the garage, so the exterior ofthe home has a dormer in order to make the window in that room lookbalanced. Always remember that your interior design affects theexterior one, as well.
3) House Materials and Textures
With the plethora of options, it is very difficult to decide whatmaterials we should use on our home exterior. Between cedarshingles, vinyl siding, aluminum, brick, wood, stucco, steel…how dowe choose?
It is best to balance durability with aesthetics. Of course, youwant the exterior of your home to reflect your personal style— areyou a country guy/girl? Then you may want tumbled stone and cedarshingles. Are you a modern minimalist? Then you may prefer thelines of sleek steel or simple wood panels.
In order to avoid costly mistakes, it is always best to consultwith a skilled design architect. There are also a lot of onlinevisual tools that can help you see what your material choices willlook like before you make that final financial investment.
4) Exterior Color Combinations
Oh, the cornucopia of color choices! How do you decide what is theright color for your home exterior? Do you go bold or basic? As inall decorating, color choice is vital—it can hide flaws or whendone poorly, draw attention to flaws. Either the lighter or thedarker shade could be used for the body and the opposite for thetrim. The a third contrasting accent color could punctuate thedoor.
Color can play up so many features of your home exterior. Paintyour front porch a bright fresh white to draw the eye to the cozyentrance, or make your too-tall home look shorter with a dark coloron top and a lighter color on bottom. The ways that color can trickthe eye and play up the positive are endless!

Blending your eyeshadows is without a doubtone of the most important things to learn to do properly. In thisvideo I have put together several different eyeshadow shapes so youhave plenty of styles and techniques to choose from. I’ll also showyou the best brushes for perfecting any look, as well as how topair together eye shadows to do a complete look!Fan Shape - This is also known as “divided in thirds”. The yellowrepresents the lightest shade, the orange is the medium color, andbrown is the darkest. This is the most flattering for every eyeshape, especially if your eyes are close together. Having thelighter shade on the inside of the eyes makes them appear fartherapart. To do this look, use your flat stiff brush and pat eachcolor on. Make sure to blend between each color so there are noharsh lines.Snow Globe - his is excellent for anyone with flat eyes because itgives the illusion that they are round. For a more dramatic lookuse a shimmer in the middle of the eye lid, and a matte shade onthe inner and outer part of the eye. It’s best to use the flatstiff brush to apply this, making sure to blend the lines where thecolors meet.Smokey Eye - This look is very popular. To achieve a smokey eye,simply pat a dark color all over the lower lid using a flat, stiffbrush. Next, use a soft dome brush with a medium or light color andblend out the crease area to soften the look.Cat Eye - The Cat eye look can be done with either eyeliner oreyeshadow. Personally, I like to do this with eyeshadow because itgives it a softer appearance. Start with an eyeliner and follow thelower lash line upward towards the outer part of the eye. Pull youreye upwards with this cat eye shape by applying your darkest shadowto the outer corner in a large winged shape. Then, go over theliner with a pencil brush to set and soften the line. Use thepencil brush to bring the color over the top part of the eye aswell. This shape elongates the eye making it ideal for people withrounder eyes, as it creates an almond look to the eye.
