This is an 1850 New York house, the founder of Steinway (piano). If you're looking for images for a suburban facade, this is a go-to option. Why is the facade interesting? The main thing to learn here is expressiveness and originality. These traits make the facade well applicable in our vibrant times. Here are the main techniques.
The decorative rafters at the top are left dark, so the white decorative part below is grouped into an independent volume.
In contrast, the lower tiers of the roof are painted white, including the entire entablature.
A dark, damp looking stone has been used. This is difficult to replicate with available materials in a new building.
Against the calm background, an imposing color accent is the green tower in the Italian manner, the third kind of texture (stone, paint, leaves).
The house in a dark key, monochrome with colored detail, super contrasting, eclectic and very much in tune with contemporary demands.
