Nothing screams curb appeal like a fresh coat of paint that's the perfect color for your home, and finding the right shade is easier than you think! Nothing screams curb appeal like a fresh coat of paint that’s the perfect color for your home, and finding the right shade is easier than you think! Turn to history for inspiration: the look-at-me hues and off-beat color combinations common among old island homes can feel as fresh and eye-catching today as they did 100 years ago. A sunny yellow façade can breathe new life into a formerly lackluster exterior—just be sure to select a shade that’s more subtle than neon. If you’re not feeling quite so brave, introduce a bold hue like turquoise, red or green by applying the color to your shutters, trim, or front door, for interest and pizzazz. We’re also big believers in going the traditional route. Crisp white trim can give nearly any exterior a seriously stylish update, while more monochromatic looks—where the trim closely matches the color on the façade—can feel elegant and sophisticated. Don’t be afraid to experiment. When one brightly colored door closes, another one opens! Find more design inspiration at coastalliving.com.
