Hands down the look of a white traditional house with black shutters is a favorite. There is something about a white house that just stands out. Whether you love the look of black shutters, prefer a shutter with a little less pop or no shutters at all, I think you will find these gorgeous white houses worth the look! Check out the photos below to inspire you to either take the leap and paint your house white or maybe get some ideas for that new home construction you’ve been thinking about. Oh and be sure to follow these builders and designers for more inspiration on Instagram. Scroll over each photo for more details about the home.
I’ll admit it I have an affinity for two types of homes – French and Traditional. That’s not to say that I don’t appreciate other homes as well, but those are the two types of exteriors that immediately capture my attention. This house – The Chateau Lafayette by Garrell Associates did just that! It’s gorgeous, which then of course leads to wonder what the floor plan looks like! Check it out below!
I just love the window boxes with the ivy, the arched windows and the blue gray color of the shutters! Oh and the front doors – can’t forget those. So pretty.
First Floor Highlights: Keeping Room – I love how cozy Keeping Rooms are and how it is typically a casual space off of the kitchen. Also like the location of the Home Office. Currently we have a computer room off of our kitchen and while I liked the feature when we bought our house, I had no idea how much I would grow to love it. It is a great spot for managing dinner and either getting work done or being close by to help with homework etc. The guest room – love a downstairs guest room! Another bonus, the three car garage that allows access to both garage bays – see that little connecting area? So useful.
This plan definitely is all about the parents! If you aren’t interested in quite that much Master space, you could always re-configure the master area and make and additional room upstairs. Can you tell my husband works with builders a lot? No plan has to stay exactly as you see it. So tweaks are often doable!
I have a love for white houses with black shutters like no other. They are my absolute favorite – stately, classic, traditional and they shout family to me. As we are always gathering ideas for building our own home one day, these homes offer a bit of inspiration for keeping that classic style in mind that we love so much.

River Dunes, Oriental, North Carolina – We have actually stayed in River Dunes and this house was just gorgeous. You can see a hint of blue on the porch ceiling – a favorite color choice for porches in the south.
