5 Exterior Colour Combinations

Exterior painting season is almost upon us! Before the spring season we like to research exterior colours that we can recommend to our clients. While doing this research we came across this article by Better Homes and Gardens with 19 Best Exterior Colour Schemes. 19 colour schemes seemed a bit overwhelming, so we’ve narrowed it down to our favourites based on what we’ve seen from our past exterior projects.

1. Varying Shades of the same Colour

Choose an accent feature on your house, for example window shutters, trim, or doors. You can paint these features a darker shade of your main colour. For the house on the right, the trim was accented using a darker shade of the blue/gray main colour.

2. Red, Black & White

This colour combination is perfect for cottage style homes with wood siding. The red is also a nice contrast to a very green landscape.

Colour suggestions: Benjamin Moore’s “Heritage Red (HC-181)”, “Black Beauty (2128-10)”, “Oxford White (CC-30)”

3. Yellow & White & Red

Yellow and white works well with small cottage-like homes in heritage neighbourhoods. Yellow can add a touch of cheer to Vancouver’s gray and rainy backdrop. For extra cheer go for a red front door. If the idea of painting your entire house yellow is a bit much, try a yellow front door with a gray main colour.

Colour suggestion: Benjamin Moore’s “Hawthorne Yellow (CC-4)”

4. White & Soft Blue

The soft blue compliments the classy, historical look of this house. The contrasting blue and white pillars show off the home’s details and character.

Colour suggestion: Benjamin Moore’s “Soft Chinchilla (2135-50)”

5. Gray & White

A modern gray and white colour scheme puts a modern twist on this early 1900’s heritage home.

Colour suggestion: Benjamin Moore’s “Rockport Gray (HC-105)”

“The quality of service is amazing! I am a perfectionist and the job was done completely to my satisfaction. The painter was professional, detailed, and completed the work with care. He taped and covered everything including light fixtures, and took off blinds, nails and face plates. (Some painters will only paint around blinds and light fixtures!) Even the clean up was great. Matt called me the next day to make sure I was happy and that there were no touch ups. I would definitely bring this company in again.”
