Hal any deeper pigment color will appear to fade faster than a lighter one. Res depending on the quality of paint will fad less or more.

I want to paint our currently ugly dark brown prow style house red with black trim and gutters and Navajo white shutters on the front windows. But I want it to be RED not this faded, dark ugly red in these buildings. If I'm going to have a red house, make it a RED house!
