Did you all watch that Beyonce and Coldplay concert last night? I think there was some football mixed in too?? I could say I rooted for the Panthers for my love of blue and white, but I am not that shallow…sometimes… In all seriousness, I actually did feel the desire to actively watch this Superbowl since I have a large contingency of family who were rooting for the Panthers. My very ill grandmother has trouble remembering names, but she definitely remembers that the Panthers were going to the Superbowl with Cam!
I thought today I would share a winning home from the almost champions home town. Birmingham-based architects Paul Bates and Jeremy Corkern remodeled this Charlotte, North Carolina home from a traditional expected brick, to a more revived and smart looking classic. I find this to have an incredible edge of chic fun.

Beautiful curb appeal with lush layers of greenery and warm hues of cream. The green shutters provide the most subtle contrast of color.
This really is the most calming and effective shade of a chalky moss green. It superbly contrasts the layered and textured painted brick.
Beautiful palette inspiration.
These garage doors add a punch of fun to the calm exterior. Boxwood tiered topiaries frame the driveway. I adore how the green makes the landscape lush and layered
A perfect boxwood topiary.
A classic and desirable Carolina retreat.
