Historic Paint Colors and Exterior House Color Schemes – Hand in Hand with Architecture
Color is all around us. It adds excitement and emotion to our lives. From something as insignificant as the color of your shirt to something important like your house, paint colors, stimulate our senses and affect our mood and emotions.
Exterior house color schemes play a critical role due to the large expanse of “canvas” you have and the large impact it makes in your neighborhood. Your house color choices affect the senses of everyone passing by. This is why the process of choosing paint colors for homes is crucial. There are paint colors that work together and those that work against each other.
There are exterior house color schemes that over the course of history were popular in certain architectural styles or during certain periods of history. We have a library of historic paint colors for homes that will suite every style and period of house.
Avoid Color Placement Mistakes
What is most important to the appearance of paint colors for homes is COLOR PLACEMENT . I can’t stress this enough!
There are certain structural features on a house which need to be displayed correctly to give your home the appearance it was designed to have. To accomplish this, the paint colors you choose must be placed on your house in the right locations to work together with the form and structure of the building.
This is where most people fail when having their house painted. They may have chosen the most beautiful exterior house color schemes that work very well together, but if placement of these colors on the house do not follow the architectural form of the building, it will make it look off balance.
Most architectural errors are realized by our subconscious mind, but few of us have the time to really notice any disharmony.

We offer two options:

The full front of your house will be rendered. With this you will not only see numerous color schemes on the photo of your house but you will also see how correct color placement improves the beauty of your house.
The cost for this paint color consulting service starts at $250.00 for the most basic house and increases based on house size, details, trees in front, etc. An average price is about $400-450.

In every project we take on our guiding principle is that we must maintain and improve the aesthetic integrity of our client’s houses. Sometimes this might not align with what the client desires at first. In these situations, we’ll try to educate and guide them to see their project from this perspective. We will be completely honest with you as we critique your house which may not be what you would like to hear. Our standards will assure the best possible curb appeal. In the unusual situation where we think what the client desires is detrimental to the integrity of the house, we will decline such projects. Our clients house is our first priority, the client is our second priority.
