Scheme: The home in Larkspur is intended to be very casual, informal and easy going. It is intended to have an eastern flair with a Craftsman influenced background. Shingle style on the East Coast can be called the “architecture of the American summer”, also known for their ability to blend into their surroundings with wood shakes in natural colors. Combinations of natural materials are used, such as wood and stone. Wide porches are quite common and invite you to spend time outdoors. Mixing that with the Craftsman Style also shows main features like low-pitched, gabled and hipped roofs. Also, the front porch is large with tapered columns or pedestals that extend to the ground level to invite visitors to relax and enjoy.
