1. House color consultants take into account many aspects of a home to choose the right colors. For example, for exterior stucco homes on desert lands, you can gauge an earthly color that contrasts with the surrounding of the place, such as white clouds, light blue desert sky, olive green plants and lush green lawn.
2. White is favourite among homeowners who dream of a white farm-house style home. Seek for a rich, warm and soft white to give elegance to your house.
3. Brightening up the brick can give a sense of reviving your home. Look for the Balanced Beige (SW7037) and shade it down to a darker and friendlier beige color. This goes extremely well with natural wood shutters, and white windows.
4. A big, Craftsman style, gorgeous house in the woods, or surrounded by lots of green is benefited by using green colors that work with, not against, your surroundings. This works great with stone veneers and white trims.
5. If your house has a traditional style with plenty of trim and other details, you can gain aesthetically by increasing the contrast between the trim and the field color. A broad white trim contrasted with a shaded down grey will produce a look that is timeless and rarely goes wrong.
6. Tudor style homes require exterior paint that is characterized by dark trim against a lighter field color. Blacks and browns from the ceilings contrast elegantly with dark green trims and beige/pink walls.
7. Brown is not to be avoided. Professional consultants often use it contrasting brown against bright trims producing a classic effect that is pleasing to the eye and projects a sense of richness and class.
8. Vitality is produced by the use of vibrant reds. Brick red is both bold and classic. White and beige doors and trims will simply make it elegant and classic.
9. Blue has been a trend during 20020. Dark blues look extremely stunning. Blue is graceful mixed with white trims and maybe a little red door or little red window frames. In this way you can mix blue, red and white and not looking at all like an american flag.
10. Grey is a classic option that offers many of the benefits of white, being a little more interesting by adding much more depth. Again, it all depends on what you mix it with.
