Things We Love: Cupolas

Like the cherry on top of a delicious sundae, a cupola is the ultimate final indulgence in a stunning home. With loads of style and architectural prowess, we’d pick any of these to grace our roofs!

  8. Lovely homes, especially the first one!!
    Have a great week!

  9. Most of all I love how it looks on those charming cottages. :)

  10. Really gorgeous. I think I’ll take the one with the pool!

  11. What a stunning collection – all different but beautiful.

  12. What a coincidence, my blog post today shows a home with a tower!
    These are all lovely homes and the cupolas make them so unique!

  13. I am seriously drooling over here! That first picture is my dream!! xoo Elizabeth

  14. Wow! what stunning images. I do love the two smaller/quaint “cottagey” images. Maybe it’s the British in me 😉

  15. Oh! great post! I love the picture selection, and I’m in lust with that tinny cute house from Decorpad!
    Thanks for stopping by and commenting!
    Big hugs!

  16. Great cupola inspiration here. We just added one to our house and its amazing at the difference it makes from a curb appeal standpoint.

  17. I love cupolas!!!

  18. Definitely a fan of cupolas. There’s an old base for one on our garage which we want to replace and top with a blue heron weathervane (we have a pond with blue herons in the golf course behind!), but the price we were quoted was exorbitant. It will have to wait.

  19. so Kentucky Derby-ish

  20. I’ve always loved cupolas and one of our previous homes had a gorgeous one on the attached garage. We built a Williamsburg style shed with a matching one in the yard.

  21. Beautiful selections. Would love to visit all of them.

  22. No.6 looks like the perfect backyard.

  23. I just love cupolas–built one on our pool house that is so fantastic–great blog piece!

  24. I love this style. I would take any of them.

  25. Cupolas just makes a space so majestic! It’s like icing on the cake!

  26. So gorgeous – and I love how you showed not only the grand homes but also some humble ones and how it works equally well on those. I especially loved the Ferguson example, although something tells me it’s a pool house. I think I could live in it though!

  27. Wonderful post! These cupolas make the ultimate statement atop a home. Beautiful homes!

  28. These are such magnificent houses. So beautiful.

  29. As always, beautiful inspiration pics! Cupolas are such a fantastic way of adding interest and extra height to a building. I love all the different styles you found!

  30. Great examples here. Who doesn’t love a cupola? It adds such charm and style.

  31. These homes are gorgeous… I love the cupolas… there is something so wonderful about grey shingles and white woodwork… xv

  32. A cupola definitely takes the exterior beauty of any building to new heights – no pun intended!

  33. These are beautiful photos! The cupola with weathervane on my house makes me happy each time I see it! I highly recommend one!

  34. Wow those are beautiful examples of Cupolas! Thanks for sharing.

  35. I live and breathe weathervanes and cupolas. It exudes a charming appeal to the whole house! I’m always on the look out for other unique ornaments like maybe a cool address plaque. Chic article!
