Exterior Color Schemes

Make Your Home Come Alive With These Exterior Paint Colors 

A home's exterior is just as important as the home's interior. Make your home look fabulous with these colors.

Red, Blue-Grey, and Taupe

Red is a color that demands to be noticed. Red leaves stand out in the fall. Red roses pull you in. Use a red like Colonial Red on the base of your house if you want to go bold and show off your personality with the color of your home. Help mellow it out with the use of exterior house colors like blue-grey and taupe. Blue-Grey Slate is perfect for use on the trim while taupe offers an additional layer of understated contrast for the door. 

Light Blue, Apricot, and Linen White

Make your home a tribute to spring with these warm spring colors. A light blue like Blue Chiffon looks good against a brilliant sky while softening out any harsh edges. Exterior color schemes using blue as the base work with other pastels. A pale apricot like Ally's Perfect Peach is a good choice for a southern home or coastal cottage. if you're more comfortable with a linen-white try Antique White

Brown-Grey, Off-White, and Blue

Shades of muted neutrals are ideal for landscapes with other muted elements. If you live in a dry climate, think about exterior color schemes that go with the land around you. For example, Song Sparrow is a trendiung brown-grey drawn from landscape. Accent with a creamy white like Antique White. To add some interest and welcome guests, add a dark blue-grey to your front door like Union Blue. Paint the door this shade of blue to add your own special touch.


 Your exterior house colors should be just right and you want colors that make you feel welcome and happy. The right kind of paint can make any house feel inviting and truly personal at the same time.
