The saying “Spring showers bring May flowers” is especially true along the Front Range this year! Do all the pops of color in the garden have you feeling inspired to add some to your home’s exterior? The home painters at Paint Pals of Fort Collins have the experience and expertise to recommend tasteful color combinations for the outside of your house.
Home Painters Color Combination Suggestions
- Glamorous: A bright hue, like lipstick red, will definitely call attention to itself so be sure to use it on architectural features that you would like highlighted. Pair it with a dark neutral, such as black, to keep it elegant.
- Eclectic: A color that is not very common but very refreshing is purple- it coordinates well with dark cool hues like forest green or navy blue. Purple can be overpowering so a muted shade will look best on exterior surfaces.
- Sunny: Warm tones such as orange or yellow are very welcoming and pair well with a cool neutral like taupe. Choose warm colors to add contrast between your home and landscape.
- Cool Blue: If you really love just one color, than a great option is to choose a bold color for a small area, like the front door, and a darker shade of that color for larger sections. Blue is a good example of a color that can be too intense if used all over unless it has some brown or grey in it.
While we recommend choosing a neutral for the majority of your home’s exterior, choosing more vibrant colors for the trim, front door and shutters, if you have them, can create a variety of different looks. Let your interior decorating style be reflected on the exterior of your house as well with a fresh coat of paint!
