Color Schemes You Can Always Count on!


There are classic color schemes that people have been using throughout the decades because they’re tried and true. Traditional isn’t boring — it’s chic and evergreen. It’s the little back dress of home exterior paint.


Color it Calm!


For a soothing exterior paint palette that ushers pause and introspection, create a nostalgic color scheme with the following:


Trim – A creamy, off-white

Body – A light grey, with green undertones

Door – Burgandy, or a deep, verdant red


If you have a front porch space, adorn it with greenery and old-fashioned metal mailbox.  


Tudor Charm


If you live in a Tudor-inspired home, you have broad and spacious trim that cannot be overlooked. Instead of camouflaging its Tudor charm, feature it in a traditional way.


Body – Off-white with yellow undertones

Trim – Chocolate brown


Body – Light grey with bluish undertones

Trim – white


California Charisma


If you’re privileged enough to live in sunny California, there’s a chance you live in a cute craftsman-style home. Let your landscaping be the real feature of your home’s exterior and make the color its understudy.


Body – Grey (can go light or dark)

Trim – White

Door – Coral


Style the front porch with woven, natrual rugs and Adirondak chairs.


Ravishing Red


A red home might not exactly be a neutral color, but in the perfect shade, it works really well. Whether you have a farmhouse-inspired home or you just really like red, create the perfect look.


Body – Red with brown undertones

Shutters – Charcoal grey or black

Trim – Off-white


Play With Beige


Beige is not for everyone, but it is a very basic, neutral color that everyone can get behind. If you have an HOA to adhere to or you’re planning on selling your home, try this variation with beige.


Body – beige

*Caveat – If you have a home with features and accents that stand aoart from the main body, contrast those with either a lighter or darker beige color.

Shutters – Navy blue

Trim – Cream

Windows – Cream


Dreamy Cabin


If you live in a cabin or wood exterior home, it can be difficult to figure out what complements it well because really, all you’r painting is the trim.


Trim – Brown with red undertones


Trim – Periwinkle


Trim – Dark green


There are so many color schemes to work within and that fit the architectural style of your home.
