Noble, neutral and as varied as a warm stone or a dark storm cloud, gray is seriously deep. It takes on the emotion of the colors that surrounded it, so use as a backdrop to border shades like Heritage Blue.
Born from the sky and the sea, blue is flat-out cool. Or bright. In its grayer state, blue works naturally as a main siding. In its deeper range, it inhabits trim, pillars and archways to make them pop with ease.
Nothing says "clean slate" like white. Crisp, clean, fresh and expansive, it makes smaller homes look bigger and makes textures and exterior features like contrasting trim, shutters and porch fixtures pop. White is the blank canvas to build your curb appeal.
More subtle than white, but equally versatile, serve up cream as the warm color mate it was meant to be. Works perfectly as a neutral backdrop to darker-colored trim. Or as the bright complement to Weathered Gray or Brownstone siding.
Red conveys everything from fiery contemporary energy to traditional rustic warmth. It all depends on how, and in which shade, you use it. It's a color that lives an alternately stimulating and comforting life as a charming main siding or vibrant accent.
Harmony with your surroundings grows naturally from the color green. It lives a colorful life as Cypress on Victorians and Colonial Revivals. It makes trim and shutters feel lucky in its Shamrock incarnation.
Wholesome and earthy, it's no accident that browns are so at home on exteriors. Ready to add a flash of boldness? Think red shutters. Want to go earthier? Pair with pale or deep green garage doors and window trim.
Weathered is real. It's historic. It conveys the depth and dimension of wood without trying. And it just happens to look awesome on various parts of your home. Think tan, beige and oak door frames. Or any other detail that could use some rustic charm.
