Curb Appeal in Ocean Springs
As we bask in the last few days of summer, we wanted to summarize our Summer Series highlighting different homes around Downtown Ocean Springs that feature excellent curb appeal!
First things first, why is curb appeal so important?
Curb appeal is all about creating that WOW factor that makes you do a double take or slow your car down to get a better look. By creating more visual interest in the home, you will catch the eye of more buyers, increase showings, and even add value to your home. The 8 homes we have listed below were selected based on several different curb appeal factors: scale of landscaping, color, contrast, and overall uniqueness!
1. Dreamy Pergola
We started off with a beautiful, outdoor pergola. Inspired by backyard views, this homeowner created a balance of breezy curtains, cream colored tones, warm lighting, and cozy seating- perfect for watching the sun sink below the horizon.
2. Charming Cottage
Next, we visited a charming, historical home that featured incredibly delicate porch molding highlighted by a crisp white exterior and contrasted with a rich emerald trim. The entire home is framed by the surrounding, lush greenery, making it impossible to miss.
3. Backyard Oasis
If you've ever lived in, visited, or heard about the south, you know it's HOT, making Pool or Waterfront homes very sought after by buyers. I mean, don't you just want to dive in?
4. Balanced Exterior
This home is a great example of creating interest through shape and balance. The light gray painted brick is the perfect canvas for the potted plants.
5. Hobbit House
Then our journey took us all the way to Middle Earth (#hobbitadventure). Tucked away in a backyard, you’ll find the cutest, little “Hobbit House,” inspiring your imagination and creating a light-hearted outdoor ambience.
6. Lush Landscape
Here, we see a great example of landscaping scaled for the size of the surrounding yard, porch, and home. The crisp lines that define this front garden space and mature landscaping are a lovely compliment to this home and classic southern-style porch.
7. Eye-Catching Color
There is no reason to shy away from bright colors or vibrant patterns on your porch, patio, or balcony. Not only is it a great way to catch someone’s eye, but it’s also an easy way to showcase your personality!
8. Modern & Whimsical
Last, but least, we see several curb appeal elements working together in this beautiful home. The contrast between clean white exterior, bold black windows, and wooden beams, and mixing a touch of whimsy with a unique alligator bench.
We have thoroughly enjoyed taking you on this Curb Appeal tour! Stay tuned to see what’s next!
