Choosing Outdoor Paint Colors Based on Architecture
Choosing exterior paint colors can be an arduous task, as there are many things to consider: one’s personal taste, Home Owner’s Association requirements, the neighborhood context and, of course, the home’s architecture. Homes can range in style from Craftsman to Victorian, from Modern to Colonial Revival. And with each of these styles comes a sort of inherent color palette that works best with the home’s architecture. With these Valspar Exterior Paint Palettes as starting points, the task of deciding base, trim and accent colors becomes a whole lot easier.
This is a palette that we created on our own (in about 5 seconds) that shows our predisposition towards red accents especially red doors (using Valspar’s Ultra Premium Fabulous Red 1011-2) on homes.
