White

This is the bright crispness of new snow and the expansiveness of a fresh start. Few colors set off home styles, showcase details and define the surrounding environment quite as cleanly as white.

Cream

Cream is white’s more subtle, less starched twin. Pleasantly understated and a complementary mate to darker trim, cream gives your home exterior the effect of being bathed in perpetual twilight.

Gray

Gray conveys a brooding strength, and is sober, sophisticated and as profound as the imagination. It’s capable of creating swaths of serenity while displaying its versatility as a backdrop to bolder shades.

Blue

By its prominent presence in our natural surroundings, blue connects your home with our environment more emphatically than any other color. Depending on the shade, it can be bracing and bold, or soothing and subtle.

Red

The color red is potent, multifaceted and ready to make an immediate impression. Depending on how much of it you use on your exterior, and to the intensity of the shade, red makes a strong, traditional statement or an edgy, contemporary one.

Green

Variously earthy, subtle, lush and vibrant, green is an exterior color that conveys hope and renewal, and is naturally compatible with the world around it. Combining deeper green tones with white accents conveys warmth; merging lighter greens with darker trim creates a cool, calming effect.

Brown

In its lighter variations, brown is a naturally neutral stage for deeper shades of trim. Darker browns make complementary light-colored trim feel more cozy and earth-friendly.

Weathered

Whether you label the color vintage or fashionably distressed, when it comes to curb appeal the weathered look is real. Based in neutral grays and tans, it evokes a home in tune with nature and sculpted right out of the woods.

Design Tip:

White is your depth-enhancing backdrop for bolder colors in eaves and on porches. Consider using it to accentuate colorful plants and green landscaping.

Use red in its more muted form to differentiate your home with a traditional and uniquely rustic look. Select a more vibrant red to bring a front door or other exterior focal point to life, or as accent siding to make white trim pop with real power.

Design Tip:

As a naturally curb-appealing background for white or lighter-colored trim, use green in its pastel incarnation. To dramatically set off black shutters, a deeper forest green does the trick.
