What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kerrie L. Kelly added this to How To Get Your Exterior Paint Color Right
Historic architectural styles look best in their original color schemes, although these can vary quite a bit. Original Colonial and Colonial Revival homes were often quite colorful on the inside, but less so on the exterior. New England homes reflect the area's traditional values, rich history and landscape of rolling green hills, slate-colored mountains and subdued gray waters. New Englanders prefer a conservative palette for exterior siding, and pick lighter shades from the tan, yellow, gray and white tints. They punch up these tranquil tones with door, window, shutter and trim accents painted in navy blues and vivid berry shades, often in high-gloss finishes. Have you hit on the perfect color combination for the outside of your house? We'd love to see it!
