The Perfect Exterior Paint Colors
Picking house paint colors isn’t just difficult. It can be terrifying! Choose colors that are blah, and your house will seem flat and featureless. But if the paint colors you pick are too bold, they might overwhelm the architecture — and upset the neighbors. Choosing the right exterior house colors and exterior house color combinations can change your life. Here are some tips on how to do it.
In some neighborhoods, homeowners fly in the face of history. Instead of choosing historically accurate colors, they paint their houses modern colors to dramatize architectural details. Using bright colors on old architectural details can produce startling and exciting results — if your local historic commission approves. But before you buy 10 gallons of bubblegum pink, it’s a good idea to look at what your neighbors are doing. A fluorescent colored Victorian that looks splendid in San Francisco will seem wildly out of place in more conservative neighborhoods of the Northeast. Bright pink stucco in Florida might give a homeowner in Washington State a startling insight — one way or the other. Houses of similar ages may have regional variations of exterior color.
