My wife and I went for a casual walking tour today in Houston Heights. I must have hit the jackpot. At every turn there was another beautifully maintained bungalow from the 1920s and 1930s. Don't you just love bungalows? I do. I live in one. David :-)/ Houston Texas
Wine red door with steel gray tones. Nice!

Immaculately kept bungalow of  blue-gray with white trim.

Another beautiful grayish tone with white and blue gray trim. Isn't that a nice porch?

A beautiful cottage garden surrounds this pale green bungalow. Large cypress trees give it a cozy feel.

The brick circle drive is a nice touch on this one. The color is subtle and beautiful...a greenish gray tone.

Another fine bungalow with a historic shade of gray. The windows and eave supports add charm.

A nice color for the historic district. Any seasonal decorations would go with this.

I'll end with this pocket garden filled with blooms in November. Many of the new homes are two story, but try to carefully match the historic style. This is a great gardener. A tip of the trowel to you and your garden!

  1. I love bungalows so much. Thank you for featuring them, David. I enjoy your photos so much.

  2. I've made an offer on a darling bungalo in GA. Looking for ideas and found your site. Thank you for such fun searching and finding!

  3. And, I forgot to say that I've been looking for photos of bungalows/cottages with front porches similar to ours, but haven't found ONE online. Odd, considering how many there are.

  4. Lovely site! My Nana's favorite house was a bungalow and my deepest wish is to someday live in one. They are perfect. Thanks for sharing.

  5. <3<3<3 bungalows and this site, to the moon and back! Ty!

  6. Celebrating party with painting features really something different. I need the tips over that. If you need the painting class houston with various advantages then look on that.
