Colour Combination Ideas for Your Exterior Walls


Your home is a thing of pride and joy for you. And why won’t it be? You have put in so much of your life’s work in building a place to call your own. Now, the next step is to deck up this place of yours beautifully, and painting the exterior walls like an enclosed patio is an important part of that. So, in order to help you pick the right color combination, here are a few options.

1.  Gray and beige

If you are someone who does not shy away from experiments, gray and beige is the perfect home outside colour combination for you. It’s unique, classy, and stands out like no other. Now, whether you want to do more gray and less beige is completely your choice.

2. Beige and brown

When it comes to choosing a colour for your walls, beige will never go out of style. And if you were under the impression that beige looks good only on the interiors, wait till you see its effect on the exteriors when combined with brown.

3. Deep green and light green

Green has a kind of welcoming vibe to it that makes your home look fresh and natural for years. The colour is also popular because it stands out without being too overpowering. Though you can use other shades like white or ivory with deep green, the light green looks more innovative and goes with fence planters.

4. White and indigo

When you don’t want a lighter shade for the exterior walls, keep the white on selected parts and indigo for the majority. So, maybe you can keep the doors, windows, and smaller details white, while choosing indigo for the rest of the surface.

5. Light gray and navy blue

Though navy blue and light gray are enough to make your house look stunning, you can add a bit of brown to the mix as well. For instance, keep the doors and windows brown, but put light gray detailing all around it. The navy blue will draw attention without being too loud.

6. Cream and red

Red and cream is one of the classic home outside colour combination. It almost reminds you of those red tiles that go on the roof of many of the homes in the country. Now, don’t worry about red being too vibrant a shade. Just use a muted red and offset it with cream accents.

7. Orange and gray

By now, you must have understood that gray is the trending colour this season for the exterior walls. In this case, let’s use a mix of light and dark gray shades interspersed with orange tones. The orange will help to break the monotony of gray, while giving your home a classy look.

8. Brown, red, and white

Another classic combination is that of brown, red, and white. While the brown and white come together to bring an element of elegance, the red adds the much-needed liveliness.

9. Cream and yellow

If you want the exteriors to look all bright and cheery, yellow is a great colour. But since yellow is such a vibrant set, it’s better to tone down its impact on the eyes with a lighter shade like cream. And the combination gets you an eye-catching look!

10. White and gray

White and gray are sensible choices because these shades protect your house from the summer heat and the harsh sun. But if you are not too keen on using two lighter shades together, add a darker colour like yellow or indigo.

All the ten options mentioned above have been suggested keeping in mind the latest trends in house painting. Now give your own spin to these ideas and beautify your home!
