white houses & black shutters

White houses with black shutters have always been one of my favorite things for as long as I can remember.  The only thing I can tie it back to is the infamous Father of the Bride house...I mean who wouldn't want to live here.  I remember watching it as a little girl and thinking "I want a wedding just like this one day," now every time I see it on TV this completely makes me laugh!

Every time I see a house that is a different color combo I always thing how would it look painted white with black shutters.  I just feel like its so classic and calming!

Even more so I love white painted brick.  I know everyone says it is a pain in the buns to keep up with...but the best things aren't easy right?!

Can I please live here?!

Or here!?...

While this totally looks amazeballs on giant old southern homes...

It looks just as awesome on smaller normal homes too...It just makes everything feel clean and pulled together.

  1. This is a gorgeous collection! I didn't realize until just now that I too love this look -- we live in a pretty old town (thank you East Coast!) so there are a ton of white colonials with black shutters that are totally swoon-worthy.

  2. You are so right! There is a town sort of near where I live called Sayville and I love walking there b/c there are so many beautiful homes to look at. It is also close to a nice little beach and has a fun shopping area. Cute blog following on Bloglovin.
