of the Decision
Choosing exterior house colors can be a difficult proposition. Proper color combinations highlight beautiful features, and boost the curb appeal and market value of your home. But how do you choose from a rainbow of color samples as your neighbors glare with anticipation? Follow these helpful tips and youll find colors to fit your personality and the neighborhood!

Learn from the Past


For a historic home, youll want to use an historically-accurate color scheme. Find old pictures of your house and neighborhood, or visit your local historical society for information. Or, refer to historic color charts and select shades that were used at the time your home was built.

QUICK TIPS
Strike a balance by not overloading a single aspect of your house with one color. Use lighter and darker shades of the same hue to ensure a match. Light colors add size to your home, while darks scale things down.

obsession...
Claude Monet

Look at your neighbors houses for color ideas, but dont copy them exactly. Avoid clashing with your surroundings by choosing colors that set your house apart, but match the basic scheme of the neighborhood.

Get Back to Nature


Nature is blooming with color ideas. Examine the landscape around your house to find inspiration. A beach setting suggests vivid blues, weather-beaten grays, and bright coral colors. A wooded area may suggest a palette of greens and browns.

Too many colors are distracting, but too few may seem bland. Turn your house inside out by using the colors youve chosen indoors.

Color Splash

Replace your house numbers, lockset, mailbox, and light fixtures to add an element of style and interest. Hardware upgrades are easy and provide the most appeal when they match.

Growing Panes

Bright Idea

Window boxes are a fast, easy way to bring color and charm to your home exterior. Choose copper or iron for a traditional look, or painted wood for a cottage feel. Plant flowers to suit the season.

An older gutter system can be a drain on your homes curb appeal. Peeling paint, rust spots, and other problems convey a sense of neglect. So replace old systems with bright new vinyl gutters and downspouts.

Ground Up

Flower lasting impact by planting Power Create colorful blooms throughout your Walk This Way
yard, either in pots or directly in the ground. Use bold, bright hues and various sizes to accentuate areas of interest. Transform your sidewalks into stylish statements by edging them with easy-care plants such as variegated hosta and boxwood. Make the plants flow by putting a gentle curve in the path.

Set the Stage Uphill Battle


Mix groundcovers, ornamental grasses, evergreens, annuals, and perennials to create a planting bed on hard-to-maintain grassy slopes. Plantings that rise up to your house make the home appear grander.

Play up the drama in your yard by selecting bold elements that call attention to themselves and make a statement. Spiral-pruned junipers flanking the front walk create a sense of grandeur and formality.
