Dark Colors

Want to make a statement? If you want your home to have a mysterious and thrilling feel to it, then choosing navy blues, greens, and dark grays are your best bet. Furthermore, you can amplify and compliment by adding contrasts of white.

Warm Colors

Reds and golden yellow are perfect examples of warm colors. Warm colors often evoke feelings of happiness, optimism and energy --- home-sweet-home.

Fresh Colors

Applying strong tones of greens and yellows can give your home a revitalizing impression. Because it is associated heavily with nature, and the presence of water and food in nature, it often creates a soothing and relaxing atmosphere. It relaxes and helps to balance the body, which can help your heart, soothes emotions, and triggers a sense of comfort and calm.

Cool Colors

Colors that remind you of the sea or the sky have a calming effect. This will surely give your guests and on-lookers a relaxing feeling, as they admire your home’s exterior. You can also use them to emphasize a unique feature of your home or as an overall secondary color.

Neutral Colors

These colors fit well in a suburban landscape, adding elegance to your home. One way to compliment a neutral color is adding other pops of color to windows, doors, shutters or even trim. A classic white or beige house can be much richer with something as simple as brightly colored flower pots at the door --  it doesn't always require a house-revamp!
