Color Schemes For Your New Home

Choosing the Perfect Color Scheme

After countless hours you've finally chosen the house of your dreams.  Now the real fun begins!  When it's time to choose the color scheme for your home, treat it the same way you would the interior.  The right color scheme will help boost it's curb appeal while expressing your personality and style.

1. Bright and airy.

Paint materials such as stucco, shakes, or siding a light and neutral off-white to create a bright and homelike exterior.  To keep things interesting, add a pop of color to shutters or front door, and select a medium warm tone for the roof.  By adding color to your palette the overall scheme will feel warm and inviting.

2. Classic colors for timeless style.

If your design style is classic and timeless, you will enjoy keeping your palette warm and neutral.  Pair light natural  stones and bricks with cream trims and a medium dark roof.  This low contrast option will allow you to mix  different materials seamlessly.

4. Traditional warm brick.

Brick adds unmatched texture and warmth to your new home.  Accent the medium tone brick with chocolate doors and off-white trim to create high contrast.

5.  Keep it simple.

Sometimes the best color scheme for your home is a simple, unpretentious one that compliments the landscape around it.  Choose a subdued color palette in materials such as siding, wood, and stone that will coordinate beautifully with bright flowers and foliage.
