Tampa Bay Custom Homes: Exterior Stone Accents

How stone accents add curb appeal and design elements to your home

Stone, whether natural or veneer, is a popular way to add texture, pattern and interest to a home’s exterior.  As a Tampa custom home builder, we work with each of our clients to incorporate unique products, such as stone, to truly make their home custom!

Stone details also act as a jumping-off point for a home’s exterior color palette.  Since stone has a natural aesthetic, color schemes derived from it tend to be easy and not forced.  Whether the stone is neutral or colorful, it can work on nearly any style of home.

This home’s exterior color was completely inspired by the colors of the stone and utilizes nearly every hue found in the stone veneer.  The siding picks up on the slate like blue in the stone and the front door mimics the camel-colored stone.  Crisp white trim sets off the architectural details of this new craftsman style home built in South Tampa.

The stone exterior of this home adds a dramatic focal point to the exterior of this façade that mixes stucco, siding and stone to create depth and texture.  Golden taupe, along with deep green accents keeps this exterior feeling warm all around and ties in nicely with the color of the featured high pitched roof.

Not only does stone add to your home’s curb appeal, but it ties in with all other exterior elements of the home. To learn more about the differences of manufactured and genuine stone, read our past blog post. If interested in viewing other exterior options for custom homes, view our image gallery.
