er there was a color made for the exterior, it's got to be classic white. No matter what the home's style, from traditional to contemporary, and no matter what the locale, from Midwestern prairies to tropical coastlines, white works. And no matter what the exterior material finish, from stucco to wood clapboards, white will give the home a fresh, clean and smart look.
Darker shutters, doors and other details give a white house added punch. Even gutters and downspouts can be made into special architectural elements with the right color.
