Sometimes choosing a color palate for the exterior of your house can be paralyzing. Home exteriors can be expensive, and the design choice will be something that you will not only have to live with, but something that you think others might want to live with in the event that you choose to sell your home.

Traditional Chic

For a traditional style, symmetrical home, choose muted, elegant tones. Ivory with white trim can be very classic looking. If you’re looking for a little more color, try a contrasting trim or a turquoise colored door.

For a look that’s a little more outside the box, try a celestial blue hue with contrasting, neutral trim.

Use a clean white backdrop with slate gray and deep turquoise accents.

Natural Tones

In many neighborhoods natural tones are the norm. In keeping with the standards of the neighborhood, it’s important to choose colors that are not too harsh or tonally different from the rest of the homes in the area.

Choose browns and greens, but for a little more fun add a pop of golden yellow.

Sandy taupe tones can create a great backdrop for your natural tone color palate.

Beachy Theme

Create your perfect beach themed getaway with buttery yellows, cool greens, and crisp white.

Choose a romantic crab apple siding with blue/gray accents for a less obvious beachy vibe.

Italian Villa

For a romantic, tuscan feel, choose bright white with chocolate brown trim.

For another take on Italian chic, choose a sky blue siding color with white accents.
