LITTLE HOUSE, BIG PORCH, and a low-pitched sloped roof are typical bungalow features. The architecture has roots in India: A “bangla” is what they called a one-story structure in the Bengal region in the mid19th century.
PALE PINK SIDING wasn’t what homeowner Rosamond Casey originally had in mind. “I intended to go with gray,” she says. “But when I saw this glowy pink, I went for it!”
THE CHARTREUSE DOOR gives the whole place sass. Says Rosamond, “I’ve had people drop off notes saying what a joy it is to drive by this house.”
A WHITE PICKET FENCE never gets old. “When I first saw it, I loved how it enhanced the cottage-y feel,” says Rosamond. Picket fences first popped up during Colonial times; Americans considered them a status symbol. Eventually they became affordable and evolved into a way to delineate property lines— adorably.
