Double Take: Exterior Color Schemes


URBAN FARMHOUSE A front door in a fresh light blue-green color is happy and bright against the white siding and black accents which give this house an urban farmhouse look with a clean contemporary feel. Adding abundant bushes of lobelia bring a country feel to this front door.

BOLD CLASSIC A red door is a classic and timeless way to make a statement for just about any home. Pairing a bold red door with soft gray siding gives the home a modern touch while shiny brass hardware adds a feeling of classic luxury. A collection of planters of colorful flowers adds a touch of fresh, wild abandon while still being very organized and elegant.

TRADITIONAL CHARM The traditional farmhouse style is a great choice for a country home or cottage. For an updated look, select a neutral color with white trim and add a pop of subtle color in the shutters!
