5 Exterior Color Combinations for Fall-Friendly Curb Appeal
Use nature’s vibrant array of yellows, oranges, reds, and more as inspiration for year-round color. If you’re ready to take on one last home improvement project before winter weather hits, try one of these five color combinations to spruce up your home’s exterior.
Harvest Gold + Taupe
Keep the sunny side of summer shining all year long by painting your home’s exterior a happy yellow color. Reel in the brightness by choosing for a soft shade of gold siding and pairing it with a neutral tone like taupe. You’ll also find some lovely landscaping ideas in this photo like lining a walkway with ornamental grasses.
Pumpkin Orange + Brown
If your siding is still in fine shape, you can play up other exterior features. The orange front door shown here creates a friendly front stoop. Bold colors can look busy though, so use vibrant hues sparingly. The brown shutters in this photo have a cool tone that complements the warm pumpkin orange very well. Can’t get enough pumpkin spice? Try these Bailey Terra-Cotta Planters to fun up the front porch.
Red + Raisin
If your idea of a perfect fall night is curling up on the couch with a tall glass of wine, this palette’s for you. Red siding with a raisin-colored roof is a full-bodied pair with sophisticated style. Install a porch swing on a house like this one and enjoy your pinot al fresco.
Brown + White
You can still achieve a rich look even if you’re color shy. There’s nothing wrong with sticking to neutrals, especially on the part of your house that everyone sees. This elegant exterior is proof that a brown and white color scheme is anything but boring. An autumnal wreath, doormat and potted plants are examples of how you can easily add some fall flavor to your home’s exterior without undergoing a dramatic makeover.
Sage Green + Navy Blue
This refreshing combination lends itself more toward a simpler structure. Ornate architectural details would take away from the bolder color palette. Instead, use the dramatic duo as a way to visually break up a tall or large home. Don’t forget to leave a light on to show off your home’s true colors.
