Inviting Home Exterior Color Palettes

Ivory + White + Aqua
Symmetrical homes evoke a sense of formality, elegance and heritage. Honor tradition with a lighter-colored palette rimmed by darker accents. This home softens into its surroundings, while a bright blue door spotlights the elegant architecture of the entryway.

Aqua + Royal Purple + Crisp White
Staying true to its surroundings, this large home’s ocean blue color reflects the seaside nearby. Paint the front door in an unexpected saturated hue, such as royal purple, for a playful yet stylish look.

Mustard Yellow + Brown + Honeysuckle White
This home gives a subtle nod to Tudor style with its brown accents but is thoroughly contemporary with a bright coat of mustard yellow. For such a statement, opt for a neutrally stained wood door.

Cool Green + Butter Yellow + Pure White
This transitional home takes a cue from its woodland setting with a cool color palette. Syncing up with nature’s tones is a sure way to evoke sensations of a calm and serene abode.

Slate Gray + White + Deep Turquoise
Capture sophistication and elegance with a muted blue-gray color palette accented by white trim. The traditional front door is painted a deep navy-turquoise to complement the slate gray wood shingle siding.

Cheerful Yellow + Cinnamon + Pure White
A modern beach house warms in the sun with a custard yellow glow, grounded by a cinnamon stick front door. Pure white accents on the windows contribute to the crisp and clean vibe.

Apricot + Peach Cream + Green
To create a focal point at your front door, paint your entire exterior in similar shades of one color family. In this case, neutral hues of peach direct the eye to the green front door

Canary Yellow + Soft Gray
You typically see modern style homes dressed in neutral tones, but the saturated yellow exterior of this home makes a statement. To subdue the tone, a soft gray covers most of the front exterior, while the yellow is present in smaller doses

Green + Celestial Blue + Cotton White
Make a nod to your home’s environment with a color palette that matches its surroundings but still packs curb appeal. This traditional home’s soft pine green base pops with an accent of sky blue and an understated creamy white door

Taupe + Beige + Brown + Rustic Red
This eye-catching traditional exterior is rooted into its landscape with an earthy palette of taupe, beige, brown and red. Choose muted hues for a warm, sun-baked look.

Sunny Yellow + Turquoise
If your home’s traditional exterior doesn’t suit your style, spruce it up with cheerful, contrasting hues.
