1. Gray and Raisin 

The different shades of gray walls with a subtle warm undertone create a monochromatic color scheme for the house’s exterior walls. The neutral palette naturally exudes a cozy and welcoming look.

The white cream trim blends perfectly with the grey siding while highlighting the outlines of the windows and borders of the house.

Using a saturated shade like the raisin color for the door adds drama and more accent to the space.

Introducing a solid pop of color to the grey siding also draws the eyes towards the entryway, the home’s focal element.

2. Tavern Taupe, Pavilion Beige, and Rustic Red 

The different hues of brown used for this house create a neutral color scheme with a cohesive look and a sense of symmetry. The use of homestead brown for the roof blends nicely with the whole home’s exterior while making the tavern taupe siding color stand out.

The pavilion beige color for the trim serves a distinct appeal, highlighting the house’s architectural details, such as windows, roof peaks, and arched openings.

The dark grey shutters also add depth and texture while still complementing the house’s overall appearance. The flower boxes fastened to the windowsill also add height and a dramatic style.

In addition, the rustic red door creates a pop of brightness amongst the neutral color scheme and spotlights the entryway. 

3. Two-tone Light Brown and Quixotic Plum

The neutral color palette creates a beautiful, prominent look for the house’s exterior siding. The contrast between the two brown tones, Avenue tan and Fenland, highlights the transitions between the body and medium brown roof. 

Pairing a saturated shoji white trim with the neutral wall brightens and makes the house exterior appear clean and crisp as the white trim tends to attract more light. It also adds punctuation, provides height, and reveals the house’s intricate qualities like windows and entryway.

In addition, using the quixotic plum color makes the door stand out amongst the brown backdrop. The foundation plantings also provide bursts of color and creates a brighter exterior palette.

4. San Francisco Fog, Acoustic White, and Fire Coral

The grey color scheme for this house creates a traditional-style house exterior and emits a neutral and cool feel. The lighter shade of gray on the roof complements the San Francisco Fog siding color, while the Acoustic white trim perfectly frames the front entry, roof peak, and windows.

Using Sandpiper cove for the porch railings adds accents and more weight at the bottom of the house. The fire coral also provides prominence, making the front door stand out.

Overall, every color in the neutral scheme complements each other and creates an elegant look. 

5. Two-tone Grey Siding and Fire Coral

Introducing a two-tone grey siding for an exterior house breaks the monotony and helps provide a more patterned look. The Tranquil Taupe front siding paired with a darker shade of gray, Shadow Cliffand, makes the garage door seem larger and more pronounced. 

Painting the back siding the same color as the garage door creates a unified look and using the white cream Frost color trim enhances the house’s curb appeal.

In addition, the fire coral color draws the eye to the front door, giving the architectural feature positive attention without overpowering the overall color scheme.

6. Grassy Savannah, Polar Bear, and Ancient Root

The color scheme used in this house features varying shades of taupe that serve as the perfect color scheme for creating an earthy and contemporary look. 

The light grey shingle roof contrasts the Grassy Savannah siding while also complementing it. In addition, the Polar Bear white trim brings out the architectural features like windows and roof contours. Finally, the darker brown shade Ancient Root for the door adds more accent and personality to the color scheme. 

The taupe color combination also helps the whole home exterior blend nicely with the greenery landscape.

7. Dried Chive, Washed Olive, Morocco Red, and Autumn Air

The green, red, and brown hues work well together to provide a cohesive effect on the house exterior. Painting the siding Dried Chive creates a neutral element, and the Washed olive color for the trim adds a subtle yet balanced look. 

Introduction of morocco red, a bold color, adds warmth and breaks up the shades of green. The rich red color also makes the windows pop up while adding refinement and sophistication.
