We often pay close attention to every detail in the interior of a home, but celebrating the architecture and design aspects of the exterior can be just as rewarding. And it is also one of the things Daybreak is known for. We just love thoughtful architecture. So we scoured the Internet and our very own Daybreak neighborhoods looking for our favorite exterior paint color trends to share with you. Because after all, the exterior of your home is really the first impression you make in your new neighborhood.
Dark colors like black and navy are some of the most popular trends in exterior colors right now. While some may play it bold and go with an all-dark exterior like shown below in a picture we found on Apartmenttherapy.com, others opt for a pop of color.
Adding a surprising pop of black or dark navy to a portion of the home, like a garage or sunroom, can make a big impact. Another way to draw attention is to pair a white exterior with dark trim. And if you think a dark color seems too harsh, it actually highlights the homes architectural qualities and details.
Pretty Pinks and Pastels
Your husband may hate it, but we love a pretty pink home. There is something soothing about soft pastels on the exterior of a home like this one in Daybreak’s Lake Village neighborhood.
If you can’t convince your significant other to allow a pastel home. Maybe they will like the approach in moderation with a pastel front door.
Play it Neutral
If the tone-on-tone look of dark colors like black and navy are too extreme for you. Try gray. Gray is a great neutral and when applied correctly it can make your home seem larger than it is.
