A white-on-white palette can look its best in low-angle, winter, morning light. Here clapboards provide a ruled backdrop to trim elements of different depths and profiles that create pleasing accents. Wide corner boards rise to elegant classical capitals which visually support a tall band of frieze trim beneath an overhanging eave cornice. Thick casings and deep sills punctuate each window, while modest crown moldings cap those on the first floor. An off-center entry portico adds a touch of drama. Each crisp, white element works in concert to create a formidable façade.
