Redefining Exterior Paint

Natural surroundings, neighbouring colour schemes, exterior colour trends, and your own personal preferences all play a role in choosing colours for your home exterior. From always-popular grays and neutrals to pretty pops of bolder colours, your home exterior palette is an expression of your style.

Homeowners typically use three to four colours when creating an exterior colour scheme. When planning your exterior paint colour palette, consider trim, windows, garage doors, shutters, and other exterior elements. Hues found from existing brick, stone, and roof colours also add to your exterior palette.

Consider Your Exterior Accents

If your home has an expansive front lawn or lots of greenery, a neutral siding can really make your surroundings pop.

Exterior Walls: Babys Breath OC-62
Woodwork: Baby Seal Black 2119-30

Match Your Paint Colour To Your Personality

Your home should be a reflection of who you are. If that means expressive hues — why not embrace them?

Walls, Windows & Doors: Rosetone 1186
Table & Chairs: Huntington Green 406

A Pop Of Colour

A pop of colour in your outside space can bring an intriguing depth to your home exterior.
